You are my Sunshine

 We can all use a little more sunshine! I had a special request for a sunshine card, so I pulled out a mix of retired and current items to create with.  My pattern papers are from the long retired Tommy paper pack.  The rays were hand cut and sponged with Honey ink.  The center of the sun was embossed to add more texture. The clouds were applied with 3-D foam tape for added dimension.  The sentiment is from the still available Joyful Sunflower stamp set.  Here is a look at the full set-

The inside was finished out with a birthday sentiment from the Melisa Esplin Sentiments stamp set.

All supplies by Close To My Heart, except where noted:

  • D1866 Sentiments by Melisa Esplin Stamp Set
  • D1932 Joyful Sunflower Stamp Set
  • 1385 White Daisy Cardstock
  • Honey Cardstock-Retired
  • Tommy Paper Pack-Retired
  • Z4189 Intense Black Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad
  • Fishtail Dies-MFT
  • Cloud Dies-MFT
  • Swirl Embossing Folder-Sizzix
