Rays of Sunshine
There are some products Stampin' Up!® offers that you can't help buy smile when you see them. I think the Sale-a-bration freebie Sunshine & Rainbows Designer Series Paper (DSP) is one of those such products. Maybe part of the reason is that I live in Minnesota, where sunshine can be at a premium in the winter. Whatever the reason, I just love this DSP! The best part of Sunshine & Rainbows, of course, is that you can choose it for free with a $50 order during Sale-a-bration. Contact me to learn more.
The colors in this DSP are fantastic...and numerous! This makes it easy to match it with our Stampin' Up! palette of colors: Bermuda Bay, Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green, Magenta Madness, Mango Melody, Misty Moonlight, Petal Pink, Pool Party, So Saffron, and Soft Sea Foam. There are so many possibilities! I love how there are plenty of sides of the DSP to use...even if you don't want the sunshine or the rainbows for your project.
On Wednesday during What's Up! Stampers? over on my Facebook page, I decided we all needed a little sunshine...so I made this beauty.
To make this card, follow just a few simple steps:
Cut a piece of sunny Sunshine & Rainbows Designer Series Paper 4 3/4" x 3"
Mark the center bottom edge of the long side of the DSP, which is 2 3/8"
Cut strips from that mark out to the edge, cutting wedge triangles from one side of the DSP to the other.
Adhere the strips as shown to a piece of 5 1/4" x 4" Basic White cardstock, then layer that onto a piece of 4 1/4" x 11" Thick Basic White cardstock, which serves as your card base.
Stamp the sentiment in Crushed Curry ink with the bottom edge close to the edge of a scrap piece of Crushed Curry cardstock.
Cut the partial circle out with the Layering Circles Dies, then attach to the card as shown using Stampin' Dimensionals.
Color a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels with a Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blends and adhere to the card.
See? In 7 easy steps, you've got yourself a completely adorable card!
