Hello Sunshine…

And sunshine is just what we have had plenty of here in Tennessee for the last ten weeks…

Today’s post is a nod to my oldest g’daughter.  Sunshine is what I’ve always called her and so this card will be winging its way to her soon…

Here’s a close up of the word framelit cutout…

Isn’t that awesome?  And so easy to create.

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…

Stuff

  • Paper:  Thick Whisper White Cardstock and Water Color Paper
  • Ink:  Basic Black, Peekaboo Peach, Watermelon Wonder, Crushed Curry and Daffodil Delight
  • Stamps:  Watercolor Wishes (sentiment) and Wherever You Go (sunshine)
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Aqua Painter, Sunshine Wishes Framelits

Digits

  • The Thick Whisper White base card is 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4″
  • The Watercolor layer is 5-1/4″ x 4″.  Using reinker and an Aqua Painter work from darkest color to lightest, making sure the clean the brush of the Aqua Painter when changing colors.  Let the watercolor do its work by tilting the paper if you want that effect.  Let dry.
  • Stamp sunshine in Watermelon Wonder just below center of water colored layer.  Cut the word “sunshine” from the watercolor layer with framelit.  Stamp “hello” in Basic Black  over the cut out. Then attach this layer to card front with multipurpose glue.
  • Cut four more “sunshine’s” from Thick Whisper White.  Glue layers together with fine tipped glue or multipurpose glue with the water colored layer on top.  Attach to card front in the space it was cut from with multipurpose glue.

This is an awesome technique that gives you the “wow” effect with less work than you would think.

I didn’t show the envelope but it has a couple of layers of color with the sunshine stamped in Watermelon Wonder on top to coordinate with the card front.

I’m pretty sure my g’daughter will be impressed and maybe a little touched with the sentiment.  She’s pretty amazing…(she will never see this!)Kendall
