You are my Sunshine!!!



I had this idea in my head as I went about my day. I had picked up this sentiment stamp at Michael's for 1.00. It's one of their wood mount ones. I love to make scenic cards and I had this idea of the sunshine from Create a Critter being front and center on a card, so that led to the gate card style. I totally love how this card turned out inside and out. The sunshine is so cute! I used glossy accents on it's cheeks. I wanted to keep the inside fairly simply with the outdoor scene and I just added a tree from Cindy Loo. Yellow was the perfect base color to go with the sun light. I think anyone who likes to make scenes should get this Martha Stewart Grass punch with a coupon. You just can't beat it. I use mine all the time. I love to layer my grass with darker and lighter greens. I made the clouds from Create a Critter too and only cut them at an inch. I love how the size fits so well with this card. I embossed them with the dots to make them stand out more. Hope you all enjoy!!!

I really like the Cuttlebug folder you used on the clouds. That little texture makes it "pop".

may I ask what the card size is and where the folds should be? This is so adorable and could be used for MANY different situations!

Ok so I went ahead and made one without the dimensions and I did link your page to my post. I hope this is ok? If not let me know and I can remove it. New to all this blogger stuff so I am not sure if this is something that people do?

Thanks so much

This is such a cute, cute card and it made me smile. A few days ago I needed to do a card of encouragement for someone and I just had to scraplift it. Here is the thread on the messageboard where I posted it http://main.cricut.com/community/pc_postsm1276183_posts.aspx#post1276183
Thank you so much for posting this wonderful card!
