Hello Muddah...A Summer Card Camp Hello
Summer camp has been so much fun this week. Thank you Online Card Classes Summer Card Camp 2011 & thank you Debbie Olson for giving me this great opportunity. I've found myself singing & humming all week "Hello Muddah, Hello Fuddah." OK, the piano teacher in me wants to say to all of my students: yes, here is another example of pop music borrowing from a classical composer. Make sure to scroll down & you'll find yourself humming along too.
Here's a quick & easy card I made for Summer Card Camp. I find myself migrating to mini cards a lot these days. It seems like you can never have enough of them sitting around to give as gift cards. This 3.5" square card is the perfect size to enclose a small note and then tuck onto a package. It's also a great size when using Martha Stewart's Punch Around the Page punches. To make the punched pink mat I started with a 3.25" square. With this size, all you have to do is punch the 4 corners, then punch each side once. There's no lining up, which is great when you are in a hurry.
The flowers were made using Hero Arts 4 Fun Flowers CG278, stamped in Hero Hues Iris Chalk Ink. After a spritz of Ranger Perfect Pearls Mist, I fussy-cut each flower & rolled the edges using a wooden cuticle stick (One of my favorite go-to tools. I used Glue Dots to stack them and to adhere them to the page. The sentiment is from the Hero Arts Trees, Birds & Messages clear set CL182, stamped in Ranger Jet Black Archival Ink. I love how the letters are a little distressed.
Here's something for your listening pleasure. Here's one for all of you purists. Thanks for visiting!
