YEAH! We are finally getting some spring and summer weather. 85 today and 88 tomorrow.
The challenge going on at Simply Crafts is to make a card using the Sun from the Create-a-Critter cartridge. This is what I came up with.
My card base is white card stock cut and folded to make a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" card base. My yellow mat is the same paper as my sun's face and is from Core'denations and is cut at 4" X 5 1/4". My patterned paper is from the new Echo Park Hello Summer paper pack. The paper is two sided and I used both sides on my card. I cut the cloud paper at 2" X 5" and the striped paper at 2 1/8" X 5".
My sun was cut at 3". I cut the base layer out of orange card stock and the face layer out of yellow. On the face layer I used the hide contour feature on my Gypsy to hide the face so I could stamp it with my Peachy Keen stamps. I used my white gel pen to add some faux stitching around the sun and colored in his eyes. I also used some pink chalk to give him some rosy cheeks and some freckles with my white gel pen. My little sun is attached to the card with an action wobble. I stamped my sentiment with some Memento Tuxedo Black ink. The stamp set also has this cute little bee that I added to the upper corner of the clouds and I colored him in with a copic marker. To finish the card I added 3 small buttons threaded with some twine.
