Mygrafico Challenge ~ Summer colours.

Sitting here in temperatures of around 10-13 degrees C ( around 50-55F) it was hard to think Summer... but that's this weeks challenge at Mygrafico.  The team got to work with this super Summer Cuties stamp set
And did they come up with some awesome projects.  Too right!

I decided to try something different today... 



My project started as a Slider Box. I made up the box as per the instructions but the slider part didn't work so stuck to a box only.  I printed the strawberries onto some white card - once together and then each one separately. I used a Spellbinders die to cut out the double strawberries.   I coloured in the single strawberries, cut out and layered onto the first double print.  One was laid straight onto card and the other one popped up.  Then  I covered them with glossy accents.   I cut the Labels 4 dies for the top and bottom and trimmed the green paper to fit.  The ribbon is some that the lovely Cathy Andronicou sent me.  It finished off my project perfectly.

Do join us with your summer coloured cards for the challenge. 

Have entered into the Allsorts Challenge blog.... using dies


I'm happy to say I will be continuing with Mygrafico for another 6 months.  I'm enjoying designing for them. 


Thanks for visiting today.
