What does summer mean to you? To me, it’s a season to embrace life’s precious moments. I spend more time with people I love, eat more ice cream and marvel at the long days and run away from as many mosquitoes as possible. Thus, the inspiration to create my Life S’more Fun With You! greeting card.
Growing up, my family would go camping at least once during the summer usually in a tent or a camper. Evenings were spent around a fire sharing legendary stores of my dad’s rebellious past life or old fishing stores, while mom munched on Hersey’s chocolate and my sister and I made s’mores.
Life S’more Fun With You!
It’s my belief that a bonfire is just a “fire” until there are chocolates, graham crackers, and marshmallows. These three ingredients turn a fire into a bonfire.
In homage to my love of summertime s’mores, I created an s’mores pattern, and an interactive Life S’more Fun With You! s’more greeting card.
A few weeks ago I stumbled upon Jennifer McGuire’s youtube channel. Most noteworthy, she teaches so many creative and fun card designs. I watched (and rewatched) her video about how to make an interactive spinner card, and instantly knew I had to try it.
Therefore, I figured that making a little marshmallow go around the campfire would be a fun idea, so I grab my iPad Pro, opened up my Procreate app and began illustrating my next card and pattern design.
If you admire my design, please let me know! Hearing from you strong encourages my creativity.
If you would like to create this card too, visit my Etsy shop to download the files. I’ve included files so that you can color everything yourself.
I have also recorded a time-lapse video of me assembling the card. I’m not crazy about making videos, only because it actually takes a quiet bit of time, but let me know if you enjoy the video anyway, and I’ll try to do more.
