Today's card incorporates all the fun and tasty things about summer - ice cream trucks and lemonade stands! I haven't been sharing a lot of cutesy themed cards lately, but don't think I've strayed too far! I do love them, I just want to ensure a healthy balance of designs on my website, so that there is hopefully something that appeals to everyone - from intricate layering dies and floral designs to shaker cards, digital stamps and more!
This slimline cards measures 8 1/2" x 3 1/2" inches. Slimline cards are designed to fit inside a regular #10 business sized envelope without requiring additional postage. The base of this slimline card is made from Neenah Solar White smooth cardstock. For the background of this card, I cut a 8 1/4" x 3 1/4" piece of Bristol smooth cardstock. I ink blended Distress Oxide inks in the colors Squeezed Lemonade, Pumpkin Pie and Picked Raspberry. After the colors were all blended, I spritzed the paper with water to give it all those little bubbles and watermarks. I also die cut a long strip of grass from the same cardstock and mounted it to the bottom of the card.
I stamped all of the images in Memento Tuxedo black ink on Neenah Solar White smooth cardstock. I colored the images with Copic markers and used my Scan and Cut 2 electronic cutting machine to cut each image out (in lieu of fussy cutting). I adhered the images to the card using 3M foam adhesive for added dimension. Lastly, I added a coat of clear Wink of Stella to many of the images for more sparkle.
Here are the two stamp sets by Avery Elle that I used to create today's card:
