Summer is a very inviting time, I feel. People are gathering for barbecues, neighborhood parties, long days at the pool… So when it came to making cards with a summer theme I thought about what I’d want to send to my friends and family to get the invites rolling.
For the both cards I used the Fancy Free collection. On “Lets Swim,” the layered circles make me think of waves. Perfect for the theme of the card. “Wander With Me” lent itself to a more of a bouncy, laid back vibe, which the polka dots exhibit.
Wouldn’t you just love to have invites like these waiting in your mailbox? Bring on the summertime gatherings!
Don’t be afraid to think outside of the card box. They don’t all have to be, “get well,” “happy birthday,” “thank you,” etc. What other kinds of occasions could you use those scrappy bits to make cards for? It’s fun to come up with new ones! Go ahead, try it!
