Summer Sun DT card Emergency Crafters - 22 June

Hello again blog friends....I said I'd be back again today!

This is my design team card for the latest Emergency Crafters  challenge with the theme 'Summer Sun'. I seem to have made more summer themed cards and summer celebration/event cards than I can remember this year, considering the weather is so appalling! As I sit here writing this, I have Create and Craft on in the background - they are having their Christmas event and with the weather outside today, it seems really fitting!

But I think we have all been feeling quite hyped up with the Jubilee and the forthcoming Olympics, a great year to be a Brit, so let's celebrate and hope the sun makes an appearance some where along the way!

So this is my DT card:

For this card I covered a card blank with some pale yellow gingham paper from stash and then cut an aperture using Spellbinders Labels 24. I covered in inside of the card with Emma Ball  deep yellow beachy paper that was free in Simply Home Made magazine. Normally I would use the die cut from the aperture for the inside, but I saved that an cut another from card printed with a beach background from the House Mouse and Friends CD. I inked the edges of the aperture with mustard seed ink.

The deck chairs and seagull are also Emma Ball stamps and the bunting is a digital stamp - all are coloured with FlexMarkers and Promarkers. Finishing touches were a few little buttons and bakers twine and I made the sun myself...I was just aiming for a fun sea-side you think the occupants of the deck chairs have gone for a dip!?

Thanks for stopping by and have a go at the can enter at
