Hello! I’m Amy, visiting from over at The Happy Scraps. I’m excited to be here today to share a couple of cards with you.
It seems like this time of year, there can be a lot of rain. As the saying goes, “April Showers bring May Flowers.” Well, sometimes those rainy April days can be a bit dreary. So why not brighten someone’s day by giving them a fun card?! Cards are some of my favorite things to make because they come together so fast. Today I’m sharing two cards with you – a “You are my Sunshine” card and “You Make Me Happy When Skies Are Gray” card.
For both of these cards, I used the Home Grown paper line with chip embellishments.
I used an 8.5 x 11 piece of Kraft cardstock, cut it in half, then folded the two halves to make two card bases. Next, I cut some patterned paper, just smaller than the card base, 4 x 5.25. I rounded the corners on both the card base and the patterned paper.
Then I adhered the patterned paper to the card base, and used one of the cloud shaped chips and adhered that to the card as well.
Next I used some foam dimension squares and put them on the back of the sun shaped chip.
I adhered the sun over the top of the cloud.
Next, I spelled the word Sunshine, using thickers, onto the red polka dot patterned paper. I trimed the edges leaving a small boarder, and then I rounded the corners on it as well.
I adhered the Sunshine to the bottom of the card.
Next, I used thickers to spell out the rest of the saying, “You are my” above the sunshine.
And that finishes up this card.
For the other card, I had some fun with the paper filled with words. I looked over it and found most of the words that I needed, and then cut out separate letters for the other words.
I cut the cloud patterned paper to fit the card base and adhered it to the card.
With a mix of foam dimension squares and adhesive, I glued down the words and letters. I used thickers to spell “skies”.
So sit down for a few minutes and make some cards, and brighten someone’s day! I’m sure they would love it!
