Clouds Galore


Today I have a unique shaped card for you…

I created this using some fun cloud dies (more on that in a second). And to turn it into a card, I die cut a second large cloud from white… scored it 3/4″ from the top… applied adhesive above the score line… and added it to the back of the big cloud on the card’s front. That score line acts as a hinge to allow it to open and close…

The sun was easy peasy. After punching a large circle, I adhered it to another piece of patterned paper. I then took a small circle punch and punched around it, making the curved rays.

Now… back to the clouds. They rock, eh? All of the clouds – all four sizes – are from this incredible Jumbo Die Stax. Adore this set. You will be seeing it a lot more… and I used them yesterday. (Yep – it works with all die cut machines.)

I used a variety of patterned papers on the clouds and sun. And to give them all a defined edge, I added a bit of Distress Ink (Perfect Peacock and Wild Honey) to edges with an Ink Blending Tool. This really makes a BIG difference in helping the card to pop.

The greeting? That was computer-generated. (Cheater cheater pumpkin eater! Ha. I love to cheat by using my own messages.)

Enjoy! See you soon.
