Hello Sunny friends! It’s Bobbi Lemanski here sharing a handmade greeting using the new Summery Greenery dies by Sunny Studio Stamps. This brightly-colored card offers a trendy color combination along with a quick and simple card layout. I’m using a fun flower and a striped patterned paper for the background. These patterns are from the Subtle Grey Tones paper pack. I love this paper pack! The “Aloha” word is from the Island Getaway Stamp set.
How to Make this Card
To make this 5″ X 7″ card, I started by adhering pattern papers to the card front. Since the 6″ X 6″ pattern papers do not cover the entire 7″ long card front, I added an inch of 1/8″ strips of colored cardstock to the bottom of the front. I also added a 5/8″ strip of striped paper to the bottom, too. Both patterns are from the same paper pack.
I die cut four 2-1/4″ diameter circles out of green, pink, gold and teal cardstock. I die cut a different leafy design from each circle cut. One of the leaves is actually longer than the circle, cutting the circle in half. That’s okay! I love when the leaves extend beyond the circle cut. How cute is that?!
I attached the four circles to the front, replacing the leafy design with a sage green leafy die cut for contrast. Each circle got faux black stitches around the perimeter and some black dots in the hole cutouts of the leaves. I used a fine-tip black marker to create the stitches by hand. I like the black accents with these bright colors. It “grounds” it a bit!
I added some Black Onyx Droplets to the card for more high contrast. I also used my black marker to add smaller dots of black to the front. Lastly, I stamped “aloha” in black in the center of the circles to finish this card. this card could be used for many occasions, including a simple “hi.” 🙂
