a 4"x4" birthday card - GDP046

Hello everyone!! 

I will not accept that it is the final week of July. It is just unacceptable! In Edmonton, the weather starts to change in August. We still get hot summer days but the day time temps are not as hot as we see in June and July. That could be because the evenings start to cool off a bit. I have even seen leaves start to change in August. We only get three months of summer here and I like to enjoy every minute. It feels like it is slipping through my fingers!

When I started this card I had a standard 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" card front. I found that the scale was too big for this layout. Now, I always use Fast Fuse when I craft so there was no taking off the Designer Series Paper. (Once you Fast Fuse there is no turning back, that baby sticks!). I stuck the card in the Paper Trimmer and cut the top off to make a 4-1/4" x 4-1/4" square card. I think that it did not turn out too bad! It was a good save.

Check out this color combo! Squee!!!! 

How long does summer last for you? I always find the global weather so fascinating. I know my Australian friends are in the Winter season right now. I heard that last week it was 10C ... nothing like a Canadian winter! Comment below and tell me where you are from and what your season is like!

Have a creative day!
