Sweet, Sweet Friend with Dawn

Hello! We are 2 weeks from school starting back. I don't know about you, but I'm holding onto summer with both hands here and not letting go!

That of course means I'm still loving our newly release citrus themed sets.

This card is a bit different from my usual, but still keeps with my "go-to" method of creating a strong focal point and then building the rest of the design around it. I started by stamping and die cutting the word "sweet" using the Whimsy Alpha stamps and die. I stamped and die cut a pineapple and orange from Summer Citrus along with a couple of blossoms.

To complete the sentiment I die cut the "hello" from our Basic Greetings Die and stitched it to the card panel using my sewing machine, and stamped "sweet friend" from Hand Lettered Hello.

The background felt like it needed a little something-something, so I stamped the outlined pineapple in Fairy Dust Ink and added a few splashes of color using the Ink Splats stamp set.

I added a thin strip of cardstock that I colored with Wild Mango Ink to the left side and mounted the panel to a Dove Grey card base.

I hope you enjoyed today's project. Are you already dreading the end of summer, or are you ready for fall?

  1. Love the card, Dawn. You are right! Summer is fleeting!

  2. Beautiful card! Love the soft colors and the design of it.

  3. Hi Dawn ~ Your card is beautiful and I love the softness of the colors you've chosen. Here in NY the 2nd half of summer vacation for our kids has just begun (they have off July and August) so we've still got a bit of time. This summer has been H-O-T so I'm looking forward to favorite time of year. Thanks for sharing and I hope you're having a wonderful weekend. ~HUGS~

  4. Beautiful card - love the colours! I live in South Texas so it won't cool here for quite some time (and even then....), LOL.

  5. Dawn, your card is so pretty, I love your colour choices for this one, just lovely.
    Here in Nova Scotia is has been rather warm and I am enjoying it while it lasts. As for school, my first little grandson starts his first year in Sept. and I dread not being able to have sleepovers as often anymore so I am trying to cram in as many as his Mom (my daughter) will allow! LOL

  6. There is nothing so sweet as your 'go to' style, Dawn! So pretty!
