Celebrate the summer!

We’ve really loved the recent nice weather here at Papercraft Towers, so here’s a card to celebrate the summer – we wish it could last forever!



You’ll need

  • white & kraft cardstock
  • Studio Calico All Aboard & Sassafras patterned paper
  • Pebbles Inc Party with Amy Locurto Rainbow Hello Sunshine patterned paper
  • brown inkpad
  • Spellbinders Nestabilities Circles dies
  • manual die-cutting machine
  • BasicGrey letter stickers
  • colouring pencils
  • 3D foam pads

Step by step
1 Create an 11x14cm card blank from white cardstock.
2 Cut a 10x13cm piece of patterned paper, ink the edges and colour in the white lines using colouring pencils.
3 Matt this panel onto kraft cardstock and adhere to the card front.
4 Fussy-cut clouds from patterned paper and ink the edges. Secure to the card front along with circle frames die-cut from patterned paper to create a rainbow.
5 Die-cut a circle from yellow cardstock, ink the edges and matt onto brown cardstock. Add strips of patterned paper to the reverse to form a sun, then attach to the card front using 3D foam pads.
6 Add letter stickers in the bottom-right corner to finish.
