FSS - July Release Day 2: Sublime Citrus






It is day two of the Fresh Squeezed Stamps July release. If you missed day one click here to see my post from Day 1 introducing 'Everyday Expressions' or head over to Fresh Squeezed Stamps to see the reveal and projects from the rest of the team from Day 1.

Nothing says summertime more that citrus fruit. For my card I focused on the oranges. Stamping the orange slice two times and then using my 1" circle punch to cut it out--fits perfectly.  I cut the second one in half. I die cut and embossed a circle, stamped my sentiment and adhered the two orange pieces. One directly and the half slice with foam tape. Both are mounted onto some orange gingham matted with an orange solid. A 'sweet' card. Iam also linking this up to the Simon Says Food and Drink Challenge.
