Hello crafty friends.  Jennifer Snyder here today with some all purpose cards for the summer.  I tend to like red, white and blue for the summer because there are so many patriotic holidays and events in the warmer weather.
These two cards feature stamp themed chipboard from Creative Embellishments.

The treatment on the chipboard is simple.  I added white acrylic paint to a dry sea sponge and dabbed the chipboard.  The sea sponge has an irregular surface with holes here and there much like Swiss cheese.  The irregular surface allows the paint to be dabbed softly without full coverage like a paint brush would.
The paper on both cards is from Maja Design in Sweden.  It’s a classic collection called “Life by the Sea”.   While it’s a nautical collection, the colors are especially great for patriotic projects as well.
Thanks so stopping here today.  Happy crafting.
