A Summer Evening...

There is just something about summer weather and lighter nights that I love.  I enjoy a peaceful evening on the deck sitting in my chair--just looking at the surroundings.  The mountains in a distance, the ocean, the trees...

Today's card is inspired by summer: cheerful colours, a cozy chair and lots of thanks!

Stamps: Chairished by PTI, Signature Greetings by PTI
Ink: True Black by PTI
Cardstock: Vintage Cream by PTI, Pure Poppy by PTI
Patterned Paper: October Afternoon
Accents: Buttons by PTI
Tools: Die cut flower by PTI, Copic Markers

1. Create card base.
2. Cut strips, layers and create die cut.
Stamp chair image and cut.  Stamp chair image on die cut. Adhere with a pop dot and outline with marker.
4. Thread bytons with paer strips.
Stamp sentiment twice (one on paper strip and one on card)
6. Adhere all layers.

Hope you are having a super weekend!

I couldn't agree more with your thoughts on summer evenings, especially now that I have a new deck on which to enjoy them! Your card is just darling! I love how you layered the chair on top of the die cut flower, and the way you stamped part of the sentiment onto the cardstock strip. Beautiful job!

i like everything about this card! It reminds me of hanging vintage linens on the clothes line with my great grand mother then sipping fresh lemonade. The patterned laler reminds me of one of her cotton table cloths. Beatutiful card Alli.

Living closer to mountains, oceans and wonderful landscapes is my dream. You are very lucky that you already live in that kind of place. I love your card. Very cool.
