Today’s Summer Solstice Card Share is a clean and simple (CAS)design featuring fresh and fun colors: Poppy Parade, Whisper White, and Daffodil Delight.
The colorful bright palette is one the Seniors seem to love, and is also a fun way to celebrate and commemorate the arrival of spring!!
The card was stepped up a notch by using a little rhinestone jewels bling, and sponging techniques.
A simple knotted bow will travel well through the USPS. In my senior sessions, I generally pre-tie bows and knots so there is less waste and frustration.
This particular ribbon is retired Daffodil Delight Satin Ribbon… not sure why it’s retired though, as it is a perfect match to the Daffodil Delight card stock. I’m pretty sure my Senior Stampers won’t care!
Notched corners provide an additional architectural detail, offsetting the daffodil delight sponge daubered flower center and rhinestone jewel.
An additional rhinestone jewel was added to the layered oval punched Friendly Phrases sentiment after sponging along the edges with a sponge dauber too. The sentiment was then popped onto the card front using a Stampin’ Dimensional “pop dot”.
Tomorrow I’ll be sharing a collection of clean and simple cards, each constructed in under 5 minutes… hope you’ll stop back by to say hello!
