How to Make a Patriotic Floral Summer Card

Looking for a unique red, white and blue handmade card idea? Today’s card creation is full of summer vibes that feel patriotic and festive!

Today we have a beautiful card by our Designer, Lisa, that feels patriotic without being the typical type of card you would make for the 4th of July. We love the fun way she colored this up and how the splatters in the background add to the rustic beauty of this card. Follow along as Lisa shows us how to make a patriotic floral summer card.

How to make this card:

  • Stamp and die cut the butterflies and flowers using the coordinating dies.
  • Cut a panel of white cardstock using the stitched rectangle die.
  • Placed the Rectangle window from the Rectangle Mask stencil set over the panel so that the rectangle would be in the center and secured it with Pixie Tape.
  • Placed the Clouds stencil over the top of that and ink blended Sky Blue Color Fuse ink moving the clouds down the length of the rectangle window.
  • Removed the stencil and then placed the rectangle mask over the clouds.
  • Added Pixie Spray to the tattered lines stencil and placed it over the panel. The Pixie Spray is great for stencils with lines. Just be sure to let the spray dry to tacky so it doesn’t stick to the paper even when you want to remove it!
  • Blend Crimson Color Fuse Ink over the lined stencil.
  • Splatter white acrylic paint over the top and then blue.
  • Spray the entire stenciled panel with Glitter Dust spray.
  • Set it aside to dry and color the images in colors that coordinate with the inks used for stenciling.
  • Mat the stenciled panel to red and blue cardstock panels.
  • Add the flowers at the bottom of the card using varying thicknesses of foam tape.
  • Stamp the sentiment from Yoga Cats onto white cardstock and die cut it with a Nested Tag and pop it up onto the card front and add the rest of the images around it.
  • Add blue star shaker pieces, red and clear sequins.

It truly is such a fun and beautiful card. This color pallet always feels festive and summery. We hope you have enjoyed this card as much as we did. Shop the products below and be sure to follow us on Instagram for more inspiration.
