Relax on a Summer Day

A great way to spend a hot summer day is to kick back and relax and sip on a nice cold glass of lemonade. But if you'd rather be stamping and paper crafting how about a fun summertime card. Here is a card that I made for one of my Spellbinders Design Team gallery projects.
We were given a challenge to use a die in a different way on one of our projects. Do you see the cute little slices of lemon, they are really the wheel (cut in half) from the Wheelbarrow Die (S3 136) from Spellbinders! Click HERE to see a card made with the Wheelbarrow die.

The card is a 6 x 6 and I used WorldWin-Luscious Lime Rich DoubleMates, Meri-Gold Vivid and Georgia Pacific White Card Stock . I used the Small Classic Square Nestabilities from Spellbinders for the stamped image and the matting. The stamped image is the Vintage Garden Chair (2083) from Lockhart Stamp Company. The image was stamped using Brilliance Graphite Black ink and colored in using the Copic sketch markers and the air brush system. The sentiment on this card is very simple just the word Relax. To make the tag I used the Tags 5 die (S4 081) from Spellbinders and bubble sticker letters from Joann's and then airbrushed a little yellow and green. I used some light green ribbon, a yellow brad and some hardware from Creative Impressions to attach the tag to the card. I also added a little sparkle using a Spica Glitter Pen (05 Lemon) from Copic on the lemons and the glass of lemonade.
