Today’s idea for handmade cards for campers is fun and easy and will have them ready to roll!
With summer coming, everyone is thinking about and planning what fun activities they want to do in the beautiful weather. Being able to send handmade cards for campers to people who love this way to be out in nature is such a fun way to personalize any greeting for them. We’ve got lots of camping themed stamps and dies to give you easy and fun ways to make these cards, and don’t forget about our crazy popular Off The Grid 6 X 6 Paper Pad! It’s loaded with gorgeous patterns that you can use in a snap.
Let’s take a look at the making of today’s card from Jamie – she’s upped the comfort level a little using our Retro Trailer die to give us a chance to do some “glamping”!
Jamie started by using that fun, detailed die to cut out all the parts and pieces from different colored card stock scraps and assembled it all together with liquid glue. If you know the colors of your friend’s camping setup, you can customize this little darling just for them!
Than, Jamie took a card panel sized piece of white card stock and used our Slimline Hills and Grass Stencil with different shades of green from Color Fuse Set #10 to add a grassy ground.
Then she added her hills with shades of brown from Color Fuse Set #3.
And last she added her clouds using the Clouds Stencil and blue inks from the Color Fuse Set #8. Jamie says “All of the inks were applied using blender brushes. I like the soft look that can be achieved, but you could also use foam daubers.”
Jamie die cut her background panel using the largest die from our Nested Rectangle Stitch Die Cut Set and adhered it to a brown card base. She then added her camping trailer into the scene. Using our Seagulls Die, Jamie cut one bird from a scrap of gray card stock and popped it into her clouds.
For her sentiment, Jamie stamped her pick from our Best Friend Set on a white card stock scrap with brown ink from the Color Fuse Set #3, trimmed it into a square and layered it over gray and peach squares also cut from scraps. PRO TIP: Jamie layered these at slight angles for a little visual motion. She then added these onto the card using thin foam adhesive.
If you know anyone who loves to load up the trailer – or the car – and head for the shores, the hills, the mountains, wherever, you can send some of these handmade cards for campers and really make their day!
