Summer Fun: Quick and Easy Card Set by Claudia Harvey

Hi everyone! Claudia here. I am so excited to share my latest project using Samantha's Cool Summer kit with you! I just can't get enough of it.

Remember the journaling cards I created for my boys a couple of weeks ago? Well, today I created this [hybrid] card set for them. It was part of their "end of the school year" goody bag.
I thought it would be fun to have them mail these to their school buddies some time during the summer. We expect to have a super busy summer, so this is a little something we can do to help them keep in touch with friends. I don't know about you (or your kiddies), but we get excited every time we receive a card or a letter in the mail; especially my boys. I think their friends will enjoy getting some mail too, don't you think?

Here is a look at all the cards I created.
I didn't have a stamp to go with the paper, so I created the sentiment in Photoshop; lined it up along the bottom of the 11" x 8.5" file I created, and added the little ice cream. The ice cream is from Samantha's A to Z Pictorial Alphabets. The "ribbon" stickers are part of the sticker sheet included in the Cool Summer kit.

Here is a screen shot of what the file looked like before I printed it on white cardstock; I turned on the ruler and the grid so that I could align the sentiment and the ice cream on each side.
Once I cut and folded the cards, I added the pattern paper (from the 6x6 paper pad); added the stickers, and done! It was super quick and easy; I created the cards in about 30 minutes.
My boys loved the cards. They are so excited about the idea of writing to their friends, that they wanted me to address the envelopes right away. I have a feeling I will be making more of these soon. June 5th was the last day of school, so we are officially on summer vacation!

Until next time.

Lots of happy hugs,
