Only 7 days left to enjoy the Spring into Summer Trends Mini Catalog. With 4th of July next week, it’s the perfect time to craft with our Backyard Party items. Let’s create an invitation and a post-party Thank You Card. Each card has a fun tip!
Be sure to grab your favorites from the Spring into Summer Trends Mini before it closes June 30th.
Brats of Fun
A BBQ is always tons of fun. Create a stunning invitation to invite all your friends to your 4th of July BBQ. Give it traditional patriotic colors and even a strip of spangled stars from the Backyard Party Prints.
Make your grill come to life. Grab the BBQ Bash Stamp Set. Stamp the grill and lid on River Stone Cardstock. Stamp the brats on Oatmeal Cookie Cardstock to make them stand out.
Line up your grill and your lid. Pierce a hole in both layers. Attach a Be Bold Brad here. This will allow it to swing open and closed for a fun interactive effect.
Add your images and stars over the Picnic Pattern Stamp for the perfect tone.

*Spring into Summer Trends Mini Item
Every good part could use a thank you card. Thank your friends for coming, or use this to thank the host if you were a guest. We demonstrated this card during the RG Presents: Spring into Summer event, but it’s definitely one we had to show again.
It’s so much fun to create your own background. Grab the BBQ Bash Stamp Set. Start with your largest image first, the grill, and stamp it in a couple of different places on your cardstock panel. Repeat with the next image using a different color ink pad.
Once you’ve completed your background, grab a media mister. Fill it with half water and half of our Blue Lagoon Splash. This will dilute the color so it’s not as harsh. Spray the color on your stamped background. The lightly tone of blue combines your stamped image and draws everything together for a complete – it came like this – look.
Add your sentiment. Differentiate how you stamp each word to really make it pop! You can always stamp a sentiment, or you can play with the Journey Serifs Steel Rule Die to make your text loud and tall. Or make your text glossy with Journey White Embossing Powder. Or a mixture of each of these!
Embellish with a few Sweet Candy Drops.
