To create my card I first prepared a 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 inch square white cardstock card base. To this I attached a square of pink cardstock in the same proportions.
I stamped a panel of white cardstock with the Woven Background Stamp using Blush Ink by The Stamp Market. I did this in my Misti to ensure I could repeat stamp for a nice evenly coloured image. I trimmed down this panel to just a fraction under 5 inches square and attached it to a 5 inch square white panel. I love the look of layered edges and it also makes the card feel like such high quality because it is so substantial when handled.
I used the Grassy Knoll die to die cut a panel of grass which I ink blended softly with Distress Oxide Ink in Tumbled Glass. This was sized to match the 'Woven' panel then backed with foam tape and applied.
On Copic friendly cardstock I stamped my images from Rain or Shine using Memento Ink in Rich Cocoa. I coloured my images with Copic marker, highlighted some points with a white gel pen then die cut using the coordinating dies and applied with either a single or double layer of dimensional foam tape to build depth.
Time for the sentiment! I stamped the 'spread a little' from the Sparkles Script stamp set and then I used Jane Small Alpha to die cut the letters from SUNSHINE 5 times over! Once from white, twice from pale blue and once from yellow cardstock and I adhered these letters in neat stacks, centred then aligned them on the Woven background and once happy I began to adhere them with glue.
To complete the card I just attached 3 sparkling clear sequins as subtle accents. I didn't want them to look like rain so I tucked them partially obscured under some of the images.
Until the next time - happy crafty time!
