Happy Tuesday :)
Now I really hope I'm not tempting fate with today's card. You see we have some glorious summer-style weather here in Sheffield and I have to go and post a card that features an umbrella and raindrops - ha! Still, a card very typical of a British summer methinks; let's focus on the 'shine' part of that sentiment eh? *wink*
Enough about the weather, let me tell you a bit about this card: Clearly Besotted Stamps are ready to hit you with another fantastic release come June 6th and the DT are giving you some sneaky peeks. I couldn't resist inking up the sweet set, April Showers (don't you just love that font?!). It game me the perfect excuse to *finally* use my Memory Box raindrops die too :)
I said we should focus on the 'shine' element of the sentiment. I did just that on the umbrella too with a good dollop of Glossy Accents on a little paper-punched heart :)
- The orginal die used is actually much longer than the section I used on this card. To partially use a section of a die, I lay the section that I don't want to cut hanging out of my cutting sandwich (I'm talking die cutting machine sandwiches here, not your regular yummy sandwiches!)
- Add embellishments to images to emphasise to your focal point. A simple punched heart covered in Glossy Accents not only makes that umbrella a little more interesting, it also echoes the sentiment too.
- Save your scraps of pretty paper - they're perfect for paper piecing!
As always, and I really do mean this, thank you sooooooo much for checking out my creation today - I really appreciate your visits.
