Hello crafty friends!  This is Design Team member Crystal Komara here with you today.  I have created a card that was inspired by this month’s mood board.  First, let’s take a look at the mood board for the month of June:

These images scream summer – sherbet punch, popsicles, lemonade, pink sand beaches and flamingoes!  I love it!  Here is the card that I created that was both inspired by the pink and yellow colors and the tropical summery vibes:

Lemon, limes, grapefruits and oranges, along with a gingham printed paper!  It’s so fun!  I used the Life is Sweet stamp set to create this card.

Card details: 

The base of this A2 sized card is made from 80 lb. Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock.  I cut a 5 1/4″ x 2 1/2″ piece of black and white gingham paper and adhered this to the bottom of the card.  I stamped the sentiment “hello summer” in Memento Tuxedo black ink at the top center of the card.  This sentiment and all the fruit are from the Life is Sweet stamp set.   On lemon yellow cardstock, peach cardstock, lime cardstock and berry cardstock I stamped the fruit image numerous times in Versamark ink.  I heat embossed the images all in white embossing powder.  I fussy cut each fruit out and then cut some of the fruits in half.  I adhered a base layer of fruit to the card and then added a second layer of fruit that I adhered with 3M foam adhesive to give added dimension.  Lastly, I added a couple of randomly placed clear rhinestones for added sparkle.
