Spring Into Summer Card - Clear Scraps Blog Hop


Welcome to the Clear Scraps 'Ideas For Summer Crafting' Blog Hop!  If you're here from Wendy's blog then you're on the right track!

For this blog hop I decided to do a Summer themed card.  I've used the Half Scallop Send It Clear Card by Clear Scraps.

I've decorated it with designer paper by Authentique & have highlighted the border with a Blue Sharpie Oil Based Paint Pen.  All the flourishes & decorative elements seen in the pictures are rub ons which work wonders on acrylic!

Here are a few more close ups...





I love the subtle yet visually appealing effect you get by highlighting the edges of a 'Send It Clear Card'.

Your next stop is Pinky's blog.  Thanks for stopping by & don't forget to leave comments on each blog that you visit in order to qualify for a Clear Scraps prize!

Enjoy the rest of the week!
