Warm Summer Cards with Laurie Schmidlin

 Hello again!  It's Laurie, and I'm back to share a couple of summer inspired cards with you!
Vintage Fun
First up, is a card designed with colors that remind me of a warm summer afternoon!  I combined some papers, Whatnots, & a Glitzer from the Afternoon Muse line with a clear stamp (the ornate corner) from the Laced with Grace line!

I adore Glitzers!  Beautiful vintage images with lovely mini rhinestones...what could be better?  :-)
And now, I have a more vintage elegant card to share with you.  Since summer is a time for weddings, I thought I would create a classically elegant card to celebrate love!
Old Fashioned Love
This card came together so quickly!  I embossed the heart onto a Cardstock Sticker (from the Love Games collection), and the Love sentiment directly onto the patterned paper!  I kept the embellishments to a minimum as I wanted the stamped images to really take center stage.
I'm so glad you stopped by today!  ~Laurie
