When Life Gives You Lemons, Make a Card!

Life gives you lemons card cover

Today I had to share with you this fun card I received as a swap card at OnStage.  One of the things I love to do at Stampin’ Up events is swap.  You get such great ideas, especially with stamp sets and accessories you might not have yet.  I’m still trying to decide if I want to try to organize an official swap for the OnStage event in Orlando in November… but either way, you know I will be there ready to swap with everyone! 🙂  Will you be coming and joining me there?

This card was created by Theresa Argonza and I loved the colors she used to make this card.  The Night of Navy cardstock is the perfect backdrop to these fun and bright lemons.  Check it out:

This stamp set is great for a number of different types of cards, but this sentiment is good for thinking of you and sympathy cards.  You can decide if the right finisher is

  • Live it with zest!
  • Chuck them right back
  • Squeeze them for all they are worth

How fun are those sentiments?  I especially love the “chuck them right back”. 🙂

The layering on this card was also brilliant too.  It really gives your cards a cool look when you layer embellishments in between matting layers of your main sentiment.  Like how there is a lemon peeking out between the vellum mat and the sentiment layer. So, definitely give it a try!

Make it at home!  Here are the supplies you’ll need:

  1. I’m excited about the candy cane bundle, as it fills in a complete gap in my collection. How do I have no candy cane stuff??

  2. I don’t know why because I already have a bunch but I am always open to more snowflakes! Stamps, punches, paper.
