Hello crafty friends! Happy new week! It’s Keiko from Happy Tree Studio and I have a trio of easy summer card for you today. These are super simple to make so great for mass production! Basically you stamp the background (or use a pattern paper for even easier card!), die cut few elements including the sentiment, and put them together!

For all three cards, I used Seashells stamp set for the background. I chose to white heat embossed the images on colored card stocks but you could simply stamp them with inks (maybe tone on tone?). I then went through my die collection to find the elements I want to use. You also could use stamped images if you like! Here are the list of die sets I used:

<Seashell card>
Lovely Layers: Seashore (Seashells) Colored with watercolor markers
Lovely Layers: Greenery

<Flip Flop card>
Flip Flop Builder
Tropical Bouquets (Flower and greenery)

<Magnolia card>
Lovely Layers: Magnolia
Lovely Layers: Seashore (Seashell) Colored with watercolor markers
Tropical Bouquets (Greenery)

I die cut these elements from various papers including velum, watercolor paper, and gold foil card stock. After putting together the die cuts, I added some clear glitter to seashells and hibiscus flower and Glossy Accents to the flip flops. TIP: I used foam tapes when putting together the seashells and magnolia die cuts for fun dimension.

The sentiments are heat embossed on the same card stock as the card panel with either gold or white embossing powder and die cut with the coordinating dies. I used Seashells set for the seashell card and the magnolia card, and Seas the Day set for the flip flop card.

To assemble the card, I simply placed the sentiment on the bottom with foam tapes, and arranged the elements above (I used foam adhesives for some of them). I added some twine to finish off the cards.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. Have a wonderful week!!
