It's hot here in Michigan. I guess it's pretty hot everywhere lately, at least in the Northern hemisphere. You folks on the other side of the globe are probably enjoying much more temperate weather.
I am not a fan (har har) of hot weather. My favorite season is autumn, followed by spring. Summer and winter are a bit of a toss up. I hate the most whichever of them I'm in at the time. I tolerate both of them for the sake of autumn and spring.
What I am a fan of is this combination of dies from The Frantic Stamper. This is the perfect card to send at this time of year. Lookie:
SUPER COOL! (YILM!) I wanted a masculine retro look, so I chose a paper pack from Echo Park with this cool fan paper and other masculine selections. I've had it for a while, but The Frantic Stamper still has some, so I have linked it up below! All the papers except the card base and the greeting are from this pack.
I die cut the fan from this great newsprint paper in the pad and sponged the edges.
I double die cut the greeting and stacked it for a great shadowed font.
I added this great Prima Marketing metal embellishment.
A bit of baker's twine finishes it off right.
