Taste of Summer Fun

Today I want to share a Mother's Day card that is made from the Taste of Summer paper pack and Stamp Set.  It is National Scrapbooking Month in May and Close To My Heart, once again, hit a home run on the special for this occasion.  I must say I am completely head over heels for this paper pack and stamp set.  It is so cute and can be used for so many cards, layouts and home décor items.

This card is a Tri-Fold design.  I will show the instructions at the end of this post. 


The paper pack and stamp set Taste of Summer are a match made in heaven.  I've stocked up on this paper to be sure I will have enough for all the projects I plan to use it for.

For the sentiment, I used the stamp set Flowers for Mom.

Ink colors used:

I used some Coral Reef Sequins to add a little fun to the fruit.  Folded it and tied it together with some Glacier Extra Thick Twine.

All of these items can be found on my website right here  - just click the link and you will be on your way.

Tri Fold Card

Step one: Cut your 12 x 12 piece of cardstock to 12 x 5-1/2. Place the 12" side horizontally on the scoring board.

Step two: Using your scoring tool, score as shown at 2", 4", 8", and 10".

Step three: Turn the cardstock vertically. Using a craft knife and ruler (or paper cutter), measure 1-1/2" from the edge, and make a vertical cut from the 2" score line to the 10" score line. Do this on both sides.

Thank you for stopping by the Playground.  I hope you enjoyed your visit.

See you soon!
