When Life Gives You Lemons // Card Creations11:00:00 AM
Hi friends! As I told you earlier this week, there would be a lot of cards shared this week. So, I have another one today to share with you! This one has some summer vibes showing through. I hope you enjoy this card! I started with a traditional card base cut to 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and scored at 4 1/4". I did however want a little bit something different. So, I trimmed off 1/2" on one flap. It'll all make a little more sense once you see why!
I really wanted to use some of my detailed trims that I have laying around, so I did this! It hangs just off the side of the front flap. I think it makes it unique to other cards. On top of the base, I put on my layers. I used white, yellow, and orange cardstock cut to various sizes. I would tell you all of the sizes, but I don't really remember. Adding these layers makes the card pop!
I used a stamp set from Whimsy Stamps and it has a lot of fruit puns! It is so, so cute! I started by stamping their circle label stamp and then punched it out with a Fiskars scalloped circle punch. It was the perfect fit. Then, I used a yellow Whisper ink pad to stamp my lemon. I realized after making this card that I really need a better yellow ink pad. If you have any recommendations for the perfect yellow please let me know! I took some orange embroidery thread and bundled it up beneath the main element.
Lastly, I layered a piece of patterned orange washi tape beneath my sentiment strip. This washi tape reminded me of citrus fruits, so I thought it would be a great addition. I picked up this roll from Michael's last year, so it may not be available anymore. I hope you enjoyed this fun card! I had a blast making it and playing with a fun fruit pun stamp set! Thanks for stopping by!
