Today, I “just wanted to say, SUMMER, so here’s a card.”  The Playful Alphabet Dies let you say whatever you want. Just think of all the things you could say! Follow along for instructions.

Cut your sandy beach from Crumb Cake Cardstock, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, and fold at 4 1/4″ to make your card base.

Then, lay down your Whisper White Cardstock blanket, cut with the largest Ornate Layers Die. Don’t glue yet!


Find six summery colors of cardstock. I used: Granny Apple Green, Magenta Madness, Flirty Flamingo, So Saffron, Bumblebee, and Daffodil Delight.

Place the cardstock on 1″ sections of Foam Adhesive Sheets, and use the Playful Alphabet Dies for cutting the word “SUMMER.”

To further decorate your beach blanket, add a frame, cut with a fancy Ornate Frames Die.

Don’t glue yet! 


First, you need to stamp the rest of the sentiment from the Ornate Thanks Stamp Set. Place the blanket on your Stamparatus, pretending the “Summer” decoration is glued in place (but it isn’t), so you can see where you want the sentiment. Press the Stamparatus lid onto the stamps, remove the decoration, add the magnet, ink the stamps in Memento Black Ink, and stamp.


NOW, you can glue it all together. I’ve been waiting for an opportunity to use this sentiment, and it’s making me laugh, so it was worth the wait!


My inspiration was from Fusion.
