Hello, Friend


Today i have a summery card today, even though its not very summery around here in Michigan! Last night it was in the forties and the high only reached the high 60's, but i'm ok with that! Much better then 80 or 90 degree days!!

I'm submitting this card to The Crafts Meow Summer Time Blog Hop.

I die cut a label shape from watercolor paper, then stamped and embossed the summer time scene. I colored the image with distress inks and water.

Next i adhered the layered cloud board to the cardbase and then the fringe border below it. In between the borders i added black dash lines with a fine tip marker.

I added the colored image to the cardbase with foam tape and last stamped the sentiment Hello, Friend at the bottom.

Thanks so much for stopping by!!
