A Season of Change

I've been making fall and winter cards for a while now, so I decided it was time for a spring or summer card! I have to say, I have missed the bright colors!  I used the challenges at The Friday Mashup! and retro sketches for my inspiration.
I did not have any gingham DSP, so I decided to make my own. I inked up the stripes embossing folder with Real Red ink and embossed it on Whisper White cardstock. I inked it up once again and rotated my cardstock 90 degrees. Instant gingham!

Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Marina Mist, Whisper White

  1. What a fun card, Shana! The instant gingham is great and you really used the sketch in a creative way. The colors are fantastic against the Kraft. Thanks for sharing with the Friday Mashup this week!

  2. Thanks for the tip on making gingham paper, Shana! I love the gingham and the summer colors are a treat among all the fall and Christmas colors!
