Hello Summer

Hi there. I should be back from my fracture clinic appointment but given previous history I'm not banking on it! So this is a scheduled post.

It's the first Monday of the moth so its time for a new challenge over at CUTplorations.

Here is my card inspired by this picture.

I was sort of stumped at first for where I was going to go with my design but in the end decided to stick with the flowers, butterflies and the summer vibe.

I used some of the small flowers and butterfly stamps form Frames and Flowers and the sentiment from Hello Coffee. After stamping, I cut the solid butterfly from the Flutter Zen 1 set from my panel and popped it up on foam before replacing it back into the die cut space.
I had two goes at my card, the first rather CAS the second not so.

This time I added some PPP sequins and popped the die cut up on pink fun foam. I'm torn again about the sequins but prefer the colour arrangement on this second card.

So what will you be inspired to make, we'd love to see how the picture sparks off your ideas.

For the rest of the DT's take check them out here, where you'll also find all the Ts and Cs.


  1. Such a pretty card, Julie! Hope you got a good report. And are getting summer weather.

  2. Two beautiful cards Jules. Both CAS in my opinion. I love the bright summery colours of your pretty flowers. Such a fabulous design with die-cutting the butterfly and popping it up! xx

  3. These are so pretty Julie, definitely summery and a repeat pattern would make fab wallpaper!! xx
