Crazy About You Sunshine Card

Hey Peaches, it's been pretty crazy around here the last couple of weeks as my family and I are planning our trip to Australia!!!!! With that in mind, I just couldn't help but sneak in one more card before my trip. I wanted to make this for the "sunshine" in my life. She has always been a great source of encouragement and love, and for that I have always thought of her as my sunshine.

I wanted this card to be clean and simple for the most part. I, of course, started with the thick Whipser  White cardstock for my base, and then got all my elements ready for the top panel. I first took one of the stars from the Star Framlits Dies and cut 2 from some So Saffron cardstock and one from some vellum and layered them on top of each other, staggered, to create a sun shape. I love doing this because it gives me more versatility in the size for my sun. I also punched a circle out of Whiper White cardstock with my circle punch for the center of my sun. On the circle I stamped "miss you so much" (all from the Crazy About You stamp set) continuously until it covered the circle and then I inked the edges with So Saffron ink. 

Next, I cut some "clouds" from some Pool Party Designer Series Paper, using the Tree Builder punch. I then assembled them on top of my panel. After the clouds, I decided that I really wanted the "sunshine" part of my sentiment to stand out, so I used the "Sunshine" word die from Sunshine Wishes and cut it from So Saffron cardstock 3 times. I did this because when you stack them on top of each other, it's a great way to get instant dimension! Lastly, I stamped the rest of my sentiment in Basic Black ink and added a few sequins from a past Paper Pumpkin kit and some Wink of Stella to my sentiment and that finished off my card!
