Summertime

Hi Everyone! I hope you are keeping cool. I love summer, but like to stay inside with the air on on these very hot days. What I like about summer are pretty flowers, butterflies and daylight savings time! The white on my card reminds me of the extra hour of daylight! While making this card I was reminded of the old tune, "In the Good Old Summer Time." So here is my summer card using punches, pearls and dies!




I used the Flower Cheery Lynn die and cut from white glitter paper for the background of the image. The butterfly is also a Cheery Lynn die and my favorite! I made the square frame using a Martha Stewart corner and border punch. Here is a close up where you can see the sparkle better on the flower die.





TIP:  I love making white on white cards and to make the details show more I use pop dots to lift some layers. This adds depth and dimension. 


Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a great day!
