It finally arrived, The Pocketful of Sunshine Bundle! I truly thought I could pass on this bundle, however, too many cute samples out there! I added it to my order and here it is! I am right, it is adorable!
My Pocketful of Sunshine Card!
I had looked online and saw A LOT of projects I wanted to create. Each one different, each one cute, each one packed with color. I decided I definitely needed the glasses on my card as well as the pocket. It was my color combination I didn’t know what I wanted. I absolutely love the new In Color 2016 – 2018 ribbon and knew the ribbon was going to be on the card. That is how I picked my colors…based on my ribbon. I love Sweet Sugarplum and Pool Party together. I did of course want to try it in two colors so Peekaboo Peach was my other color of choice. What do you think? Smoky Slate was chosen for my card base color because it complimented each of the colors.
Background Stamping on Whisper White Card Stock!
I often create my own designer series pattern paper. Why? I like to tie in the colors I am using from my project and if I am not using a pack from Stampin’ Up!, it’s easy to make my own. I also love that it shows the variety of stamps from the set.
- card base 4 1/4″ x 11″, score at 5 1/2″
- layering card stock 4″ x 5 1/4″
- whisper white card stock 3 1/4″ x 3 3/4″
- whisper white card stock “for you” 1/2″ x 4″
I finally used my NEW Polka Dot Basic Embossing Folder and Rhinestones. The rhinestones are not that different from the past ones so that made me happy. I love bling and adding a few to the pocket and glasses made the card sparkle. The new folder, of course, is perfect for adding dimension to the card stock.
Ribbon Split available!
I am offering the In Color 2016 – 2018 Striped Ribbon as a ribbon split. If you would like a share, just Contact Me. I would love to send you a share so you can add it to your projects! You won’t be disappointed in the ribbon.
