Summer Friends

My wonderful mom sent me the Punched Posies stamp set. Of course I promised I’d make a card for stamp camp using it.

I think mom’s customers know when I design a card because it usually ends up with the most eclectic collection of colors! I’m still not sure how I came up with this one.

I started this card knowing I wanted to do the punch window. I’ve seen it done by others and it isn’t something we’ve done in camp before. I used pop dots around the opening and regular tape on the rest of the layer.

Working long distance can be quite difficult. I do not have an extensive StampinUp collection (at least of “current” items). Like buttons for instance. I’ve mailed the card off to mom and she’s going to add a button to the flower center which I think will finish off the card just right.

  1. Ooooh, love the color combo here, even if it is a bit “eclectic.” 😉 Love the popped-up, punched-out layer–a really cool effect I’ve been seeing a lot lately. Your mom’s stamp camp will be so trendy!

  2. Nice color combo – I like the punched window with the flower peeking through – pretty.

  3. Cute! I’d be happy at stamp camp if we were making this card! Your mom sure is lucky to have your help, Karen!
