Jessica it has been a real pleasure having you Guest Design for us.
Hey there crafty friends! Is everybody having an awesome summer? I've been keeping busy with the kiddos, hanging out at the lake and doing all the other fun summer activities. I have to say one of the best things about summertime is the beach, especially watching the little ones play with so much excitement in the water. The card I'm sharing today showcases that summertime activity so perfectly.
If you know me, I can almost never leave the inside of my cards blank. If I can, I like to make the insides match the front of the card. I feel this extra little bit of effort makes the card even more special for the person who receives it. For the inside of this card I decided to matte both sides with the yellow pattern paper and then matted some white cardstock on top of that and then finishing it off by adding a strip of the red satin ribbon to both sides. A little trick to adding small strips of ribbon to your cards is to first run it through an Xyron sticker maker. I like using the repositionable adhesive so I can adjust my ribbon if needed. Also, how perfect is that sentiment “BECAUSE WHEN YOU STOPPED AND LOOKED AROUND THIS LIFE IS PRETTY AMAZING”? Please comment below letting me know what your favorite summertime activity is.
