Hello, Sunshine



This card was inspired by the current Loonie Stampers Challenge. I normally take on the challenge on Sunday, but this week, the challenge was...well...challenging! I did not know what to do! I wanted to use the layout mostly and it was not my usual style, so it was quite difficult. I think I should have just used the colors as inspiration! How do you think it turned out?

Sorry, there is no video again. I hope to upload more videos in June. But, I hope you still enjoy the card postings in the meantime. Have a great Wednesday and thanks for your visit.

  1. Make an A2 card with white cardstock.
  2. Trim core'dinations cardstock, emboss, cut into shape, sand, distress, and adhere.
  3. Apply stickers and rhinestones.
  4. Stamp sentiment.
