Summer Cards and Gift Bag

Hi everyone, I'm on the Makin's Clay blog with a set of summer cards and gift bag.  We are in the middle of summer.  Kids may be heading to camp.  Friends and/or family may be leaving for vacation.  Why not send everyone off in style with summer themed cards and coordinating gift bag.  Did you know you can create embellishments with  Makin's ClayⓇ and incorporate those decorative elements in your projects?  Let me show you how.

Imagine Crafts Ink
Just For Fun Rubber Stamps
Crafters Companion dies
Pattern paper

Start by creating sea shells using white clay and the Sea Shells Push Mold.  Since the clay needs minimal conditioning, you can begin creating the shells immediately.  Pull off  pieces of clay and push into the molds.  Remove any excess clay and use to create additional shells.  The shells easily pop out of the molds.

I used the entire package of white clay to create an assortment of shells.  Look at all the details on those shells.  You can use them immediately or wait until they have dried.

Using a summer pallet, die cut the letters and adhere the panels together.

Create cards from orange cardstock and place a layer of pattern paper on top.  Wrap the die cut letter panels with ribbons then adhere the panels to the card.

Ink the sea shells with gold ink and adhere by the ribbon.  Stamp and emboss the sentiments and mat with cardstock.  Then add the sentiments to each card.  Place an additional sea shell to the corners of each sentiment.

Next, create the gift bag using the same colors.  Stamp and color the beach scene with Copic Markers and add graduating sizes of cardstock using the same summer pallet.

Finish by adding several additional shells to the corner of the beach scene.

Add items that the recipient will enjoy receiving.

Thanks for stopping by.
