My design team project this week is using some new amazing stamps and dies from Pink and Mains June release. This combo has a special meaning to me. When I met my husband, many moons ago, I use to sing "You are my Sunshine" to him. Yes I know it's disgusting :P! When I saw the script "Sunshine" with sentiments, and the awesome sunshine die cut panel, Sunny Cover, I knew I had to make my hubby a card with it. I really enjoyed these. As always, a list of the products used will be at the bottom along with links. :)
You are the Sunshine of my Life card:
I created a standard top folding A2 card using 110lb black card stock. I first die cut the Sunshine panel die, Sunny Cover, from heavy duty Bazzill card. I temporarily adhered it to a non stick mat completely in tack. I then got out my trusty Oxide Inks and colored the front panel until it was blended throughout. I did leave off the bottom panel, which I decided to edge in orange, but leave white for the "Sunshine" die to pop. After the Oxide inks, I sprayed it with a sparkle paint (no sun here in MD today so you don't see the sparkle as much). After it dried, I popped all the rays, and sun. Cut out the Sunshine word and colored it with an ombre effect using the same oxide inks. I finished it off a few glossy dots.
You Are My Sunshine Card:
I created a standard side folding A2 card using 110lb black card stock. I die cut the Sunshine panel die, Sunny Cover, from several P&M yellow patterned papers. A trick is to put the die cut over the card and trace where the rays go. This will help you line up the rays. I used the die cut "Sunshine" from the other card and layered a piece of black paper behind it. Super easy and a great way to utilize the die cuts.
