Colorful Seasons - the Adirondack Chair

Nothing says summer to be like an Adirondack chair on my dock!

I loved this set so much I used it for my team swap.  A swap is where we all make 10 cards and then swap so we each have 10 different cards.  I like to make mine a little "Maine" in the past I used the lobster and the recently the lighthouse.

Here's the finished card.  I love this new designer paper.  It has a crinkle look on 1 side and ombre on the other and is in this Dapper Demin, Berry Burst, Old Olive and Crushed Curry.   Love the drink - such a tiny die. And I had to add some glitter dots (they come in the same colors: Berry, Denim, Curry and Olive). 

I have a little tiny peek of the crushed curry showing.  The sun is from the most popular set of last year Swirly Bird (that surprised me it was the most popular - I loved it but it's not so common for a set with out sentiments to be #1).  I cut the sun from the ombre paper so each sun has a little shading.  The ocean swirl is from the same set and also from the ombre paper.

When I make a lot of swaps I do all but die cutting, cardstock cutting... and then go into assembly mode.  Although I like to make a full card first just in case I've made a mistake... I hate finding out after I cut 10 pieces that I'm out by 1/4"  Does that ever happen to you?!

And here they are ... all done... a great feeling!  

We'll be playing with this set July 8 and making this card and 2-3 other projects. See the Events tab for details.  

June 17 Catalog launch we'll be playing with the matching Memories and More cards and making a "tag" card with this Adirondack chair -- and other projects too - stay tuned!!  

And you'll see all the other 9 cards from this swap!

Happy crafting, MaryKate
