Quick and Easy Handmade Summertime Cards

Hi American Crafts fans! It’s Flóra here today with a set of spring cards. For this project I used Shimelle’s Never Grow Up line. It’s perfect for something cute and spring/summer. I created mini scenes on the cards with the lovely critters and other fun icons.

I picked the Flower Meadow paper for the base of my cards. On them, I layered cards which I trimmed from the Dreams Come True paper.

The first card is butterfly themed. I placed the 3×4 phrase card in the middle. Next, I added leaves and flowers from the Floral Ephemera pack on the sides. On the right, I placed a butterfly net from the 6×12 Stickers sheet. I used foam dots to create a 3D look. I fussy cut more butterflies from the Flutter By paper and completed the scene with a tiny puffy butterfly.

The second card is completely different from. First, I placed a journaling card trimmed from Dreams Come True patterned paper. Then, I added a huge speech bubble from the Everyday Magic paper. I completed the phrase with Here We Go Foam Alpha Thickers, as the design is the same but the 3D look makes it more fun. The cute frog is from the ephemera pack and the flowers next to it are from the Grow Wild paper. On the bottom, I added tiny details using puffy and epoxy Stickers.

I love Shimelle’s Never Grow Up collection so much! The designs and all the coordinating products are so much fun. It is super easy to make cards or even layouts with this line. I hope you will try it out! Thanks for stopping by today!
