Enjoy the Sweeter Things in Life

Well, it's hard for me to type this, but this is my last. week. of. summer. break.  WHAT? HOW did the summer disappear so fast?  I just can't believe it!  Next week it is back to work!  Don't get me wrong, I love my job, but I really wish summer could have been a few weeks longer! :)

With that in mind, I made up a card that feels pretty summery to me.

I love the new Citrus Slices Dies by Frantic Stamper.  I knew I wanted to use them to make a colorful card.  I die cut each slice using two different colors of paper.  First, I die cut the slice with white textured cardstock and then I die cut each slice with the inside patterned paper. I also wanted the rind to show for each fruit slice, so I used a circle die to create the solid colored cardstock for each slice that I layered all of the other die cuts on top of (I cut the green circle in 1/2).

I attached all of the colorful slices on to a small card mat, stamped my sentiment, added a few bright sequins and then attached the entire piece to my card panel that I popped up with dimensionals.
