MCT ~ Designer's Challenge ~ Summer Theme

Good morning! Today is there is a new Designer Challenge over at My Creative Time! Our host this time around is the very talented Miss Amy. She has asked us and all of you to create a project with a Summer Theme! Your project can be anything that you associate with summer; a barbecue, beach, vacation, color palette, picnic.. anything summery! Head on over to Emma's blog and get all the details! Click here.
For my project today I wanted to use colors and things that remind me of summer! Even though my project is very simple, it reminds me of our summer here at my house. The colors yellow reminds me of the sun and my Stella Dora flowers around my yard. Then my ribbon, red gingham, reminds me of a picnic tablecloth. Last but not least ice cream cones! YUMMY! Who doesn't love ice cream on hot summer days?? I figure I could whip these "Gift Holders " up pretty fast for family & friends and slip in a gift card to Dairy Queen! Of course the sentiments were fun to add too! I will list all the details below!
Materials Used:
"Embossed Gift Card Holder" ~ gift card holder
"Celebrate Good Times" ~ ice cream cone die & sentiment on the top
"Things I Love" ~ sentiment "Just Chillin"
Paper ~ PTI and Stampin Up
Ink ~ Archival & Versa Mark Ink
Clear embossing powder
I hope you enjoyed my simple Summer project! Head on over to My Creative Time to see what the rest the MCT ladies have created for Amy's Summer Theme Designer Challenge. We can't wait to see what you all create!
Have a great day!
