Can you believe those gorgeous berries? I can't be the only one inspired to bake right now, right? I don’t know about you, but I get such inspiration from fresh produce. When I saw this beautiful cake, with its glorious, fruity decoration, I knew immediately that it would make a wonderful Color Play prompt. Those berries and tiny flowers had me in the mood for summertime creating. I decided to embrace that feeling.
I began today's card by making my "beach towel." I die cut a piece of Fresh Snow linen cardstock with one of the Stitched Rectangles dies and stamped it with variable line images from Background Basics: Super Stripes and the Plaid Builder stamp sets. I trimmed off the holes on the sides and added embroidery floss fringe on one end before setting that piece aside.
Next, I stamped a Classic Kraft card base with sentiment images from Get Lost. I began with the Scarlet Jewel focal sentiment and then filled in around it with the other sentiments in watermark ink. Then, I textured my card front with the Linen & Canvas impression plate to make it look a bit sandy. I adhered my towel to the card base and trimmed off the overhang.
Next, I die cut the sandals from Flipping Out and stamped them with the heart print flip flops in Scarlet Jewel ink. I die cut the straps from Enchanted Evening and adhered them to the sandals. I adhered the sandals to the card front with a mix of flat and foam adhesives to give them a bit of dimension. Such a fun, summertime card.
Thank you so much for joining me today! I hope you'll give this month's Color Play palette a spin for yourself. Have a great week and I'll see you again soon!
