Summer vibes

The latest Joanna Sheen bookazine is out now and I was lucky enough to be given a commission to make a set of  bright summer birthday cards (summery vibe rather than specific summer motifs). I was given the free kit from the bookazine to use which included a gorgeous ribbon lace die, pretty stamps and embossing folder.

I made 5 cards in total, here are three of them.

As well as elements of the free kit I used
Papers - Bonnets n bowties - Nitwit collections
blue and white ink pads
Joanna sheen signature dies - Lace Edger 1
X-cut corner punch

 Memory Box Darla and Vivienne butterfly dies
Tonic scalloped circle and plain circle layering die sets
