Summertime Card Projects


Summertime is a wonderful opportunity to get creative with card-making. Whether it’s for a birthday, thank-you or just to brighten someone’s day, a handmade card is a thoughtful and personal way to show someone that you care. Here are some summertime card craft projects to inspire your creativity:

Beach-themed cards: With the sun shining, it’s the perfect time to hit the beach, so why not make a beach-themed card? Use blue and green cardstock to create the sea and the sand, then add small seashells, starfish, or beach umbrellas to complete the design.

Ice Cream Cone cards: Who doesn’t love ice cream in the summer? Create a card that features a paper ice cream cone with different colored scoops on top. Use colorful cardstock for the cones and pastel paper for the ice cream scoops.

Flower cards: Summer is the perfect time for flowers to bloom, so why not make a card to celebrate this? Use floral patterned paper or cut out your own flower shapes and add them to the card. You can also use a combination of stamps, stickers and markers to create your own unique design.

Watermelon cards: Watermelon is the quintessential summer fruit, and its bright pink and green colors make for a fun and cheerful card. Use pink and green cardstock, and cut out a watermelon shape. Add small black seeds and use a white gel pen to add the rind.

Flip-flop cards: Flip-flops are a staple of summer footwear. Create a card that features a pair of flip-flops, using bright and bold colors like pink, green, or yellow. Add small details like straps, embellishments, or even little bows.

Summer vacation cards: Summertime is a great time for vacations and adventures. Make a card that features your favorite summer destination, such as the beach or a campsite. Use stickers or draw your own designs to capture the essence of your vacation.

Sunflower cards: Sunflowers are a symbol of summer and sunshine. Create a card with a big, bold sunflower design. Use yellow and brown cardstock to make the flower, and add details like petals and leaves using markers or stickers.

Lemonade cards: Lemonade is a refreshing summer drink that is perfect for hot days. Create a card that features a pitcher of lemonade, using bright yellow cardstock for the lemons and a clear plastic bag for the ice cubes.

These are just a few ideas to get you started on your summertime card-making adventures. Let your creativity flow and make something that is unique and special for your loved ones.
