Summer is really close by!





I made two of really pretty summer cards. This is a fun technique that was taught to me by my good pal SUE, she is a great teacher and happens to be a su demo. She taught us this tech.


What you will need.


Su wheels. (or any kind of wheel stamp)

card stock

ink

ribbon & what ever you might want to use to decorate.



What you do is, go over your background 3x's. hold your paper horizontal roll diagonal from the lower left corner up and across.


quarter turn, now your paper is upright. Go straight up and down.


quarter turn and go diagonal again. Now you may think it is a mess, but as you can see it looks really cool.


then take a 2' wide strip and roll once across, mat and assemble. It's so simple and looks really neat.


I am not sure what some of the rollers are called. I know the red white and blue card was with stars. duh!


The one with the flip flops I did at home. So, I knew what it was...lol


I hope you try this, You will like it. My mom(Linda) tried it with the happy birthday word ones, and It looked really really cool.



Have fun!!
