My Project:Here is what i came up with. Now summer colors are not really my thing, so i had to dig a little deep and ended up using yellow. I made a recipe card (Recipe included) for a summer drink to cool you down. So i got creative with MB's Treasurista goodies, the GCD Studio's Funhouse paper pad, and a new to me stamp set by TPC Studio (Slice of Life). I covered a 4x6 piece of chipboard with the paper. i made a pocket on the front by cutting diagonally down a separate piece of designer paper, which is the same patterned as the back side. I fussy cut the pitcher and glass and popped them up. I also fussy cut the tables from the Simple Stick stamp set made by Fiskars. I colored the centers of the mint flower trim with my maize copic marker, just to add a little dimension. The envelope below contains a little tag with a sentiment and the back side has my info! I also decided to make more of these and use them in the Cool it Down Recipe Card swap at CCL, which was my inspiration.
