Hello and Happy June! June is one of my favorite months of the year. The farmers market is in full swing, by now my little herb and veggie garden is planted (I’ve only been gardening for two years) and it’s my birthday month 🙂
I’m dropping in to share the cards I created for the new monthly challenge over at SEI:
I created these cards as teacher thank you cards and inserted coffee gift cards in the front pocket. I used red gingham patterned washi tape to make sure the gift card didn’t fall out. I wish I took a picture of the card with the washi, but like always I was in a rush and needed to get these to the teachers before the last day of school (barely made it).
Also, here is a fun tip: Create a vellum mat to soften and mute a “busy” paper pattern and allow your main card element (in this case the apple die cut and pocket) to take center stage. I just love the effect of the vellum paper.
These cards are busy, bright and a step outside of the clean and simple cards I tend to create, but I like it and I think the cards were appropriate for the occasion. So if you have time and have some SEI or summer paper you’ve been wanting to play around with, check out the SEI challenge here. There is a $25 gift code available to the challenge winner! Take care and thanks so much for stopping by! xo, Tyra
