Make Lemonade with CardMaps

Happy Monday, crafty friends! What a glorious weekend it was here in my neighborhood. It was sunny and warm and everything has turned such a nice bright green. I spent lots of time outdoors working in my yard and walking with Finley. I pruned and mowed and picked up branches and watered and weeded. I over-exerted, and over-heated at times, but it feels so good to get so much work done. And I love that it feels like summer is almost here. I hope that whatever you did this weekend, that you had a wonderful time, too.

Today I’m sharing a card that I made for the PageMaps website using one of the CardMaps sketches from the April release. Here is the fun sketch that I used, and here is my take on it featuring the Some Days collection from Pink Fresh.

I love things with a citrus vibe, so I fell hard for this sweet collection. This card was made with the 6×6 paper pad, the die cut ephemera bits, and the matching enamel dots. And I threw in some Sizzix cardstock and border dies from Photo Play Paper to finish the design.

As you can see, the die cut lemons and flowers replace the cute bunnies from the sketch. I layered the die cuts and added some with foam dots to add depth and dimension. The sentiment label is a snippet from the paper pad, and although small, works perfectly for this design.

Love these happy colors and papers! This is making me want to break out some of my lemon decor and do a bit of decorating. It’s time to put that on the old to-do list!

Hope your week is getting off to a great start, and thanks so much for stopping by!
