Today’s card is for the Make My Monday Challenge Blog and is celebrating Summer.  In my book that means flowers, butterflies and birds to name a few.  So I paired Masterfully Made Designer Series paper with the Happy Hedgehog stamp set.

The papers used really shine, but I am partial to the little scene I created.  This is made with the Happy Hedgehog Stamp Set.  I combined the grass, bird, and butterfly to create one small scene.  They are all stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and then punched with the 1 3/4″ Circle Punch and 2″ Circle Punch.  Any circle dies would work as well.


The base of this card is the beautiful colors of paper.  Of course the DSP is the star with those gorgeous mix of colors.  It is the Masterfully Made Designer Series Paper.  I pulled the other colors from it and chose an unusual mix.  The card base is Orchid Oasis with a layer of Fresh Freesia.  The flowers are White and Berry Burst.  The Berry Burst really pops!  These flowers help keep the little flap closed as well.


This is a simple but fun layout today.  You know how much I love fun folds.  I decided on a portrait style buckle card.  This was created  using the second smallest of the Countryside Corners Dies.  After die cutting it I scored at 5/8″.  That little flap is tucked under the inside layer.

The front layers are 2 1/2 X 5 1/4 and the DSP is 2 1/4 X 5.  For the inside I used a piece of Fresh Freesia that is 4 X 5 1/4.  Then added a piece of DSP that is 1 1/2 X 5 and White that is 2 1/4 X 5.

Here is an inside view:




The finishes were simple as the papers and buckle are the most noticeable.  I mentioned above about the flowers holding the flap closed.  They are punched using the Petal Park Punch and adhered with Glue Dots.  For each flower I added a pearl from the Festive Pearls.  They are a carryover that are included in the Online Exclusives.  I love the different colors and this is the light blue/green color.  It seems to take on the color it is near.  So each flower received a pearl as did the little bird scene.

Thank you for stoping in today!!!
