Hooray for Today - SUN!

Thanks for hanging in there with my posting inconsistencies this year. If you are new to my blog and are curious, you can click here to see the stuff that started with me way back in mid-December 2013. Then, in early March, I had a relapse of a condition you can read about here. I am happy to report that I am no longer in that horrific pain. So, even though it's not bright, clear, and sunny in Colorado Springs this morning (we got snow again!), you can see why I can still say, "Hooray for today!"

This card features the Geometrical Stamp Set + Triangle Punch Bundle, and our NEW Fringe Scissors. You can purchase the stamp set and the punch individually, but you get a 15% discount when you purchase the Bundle! It is pretty easy to recreate this card from the supply list below, but I do have a few tricks for you that I'd love to share. A video would be the easiest way for me to do that, but I don't want to promise that because I have so much catching up, cleaning, and reorganizing to do. So, I guess I will type up some instructions to walk you through this card for now. Feel free to comment on this post with any questions you may have.

1) Cut Whisper White card stock to 5-1/2"x8-1/2" and score in half to make a 4-1/4"x5-1/2" foldover card.
2) Sponge Soft Sky ink over the edge of a scallop circle*, then move scallops and repeat as necessary to fill front of card.
3) Punch a 2-1/2" circle from Tangerine Tango card stock, and stamp saying in Tangerine Tango in center of circle, as shown.
4) Stamp 8 striped triangles in Tangerine Tango ink, and punch out with Triangle Punch.
5) Cut a strip of Pistachio Pudding card stock to a 4-1/4" width, and at a height you'd like your grass. It's only Spring so I wanted the grass to be muted, but you could use Gumball Green for more luxurious grass.
6) Cut "grass" strip with Fringe Scissors, being careful not to cut all the way through the strip, and being careful not to snip your fingers. To make my grass a little less stiff and straight, I cut across the top of the fringe at a slight angle with the Fringe Scissors, then went back and did the same in the opposite direction.
7) Adhere your grass strip to the card front with Tombow Liquid Adhesive (glue).
8) LAY OUT YOUR CIRCLE AND TRIANGLES on the card front to plan where you want to adhere them. You can get the sun and rays to easily fit within the card front if you arrange them as shown on my sample.
9) Pick up the 2-1/2" circle, and adhere back in place with Stampin' Dimensionals.
10) Pick up one triangle at a time and adhere it back in place with 1/2 Stampin' Dimensional on the back.
11) Consider sponging clouds on the flap of an envelope, to coordinate with this card.
*TIP: If you do not have a scallop circle punch/shape you can use, consider punching out a 2-1/2" circle and cutting your own scallops along the edge. Because it's for clouds, the scallops don't have to be perfect, and you only have to do it once to get a reusable template.
