Simply Crafts - Sunshine Cut

Hi friends. It is once again the first Wednesday of the month and time for another Simply Crafts Challenge. I chose the cut this month and I picked the sunshine from the Create-a-Critter cartridge. Sorry that I've picked from that cartridge a few times but it is one of my all time favorites. It just has SO much packed into it. If you would like to join in on our challenge this month go to the Simply Crafts Challenge blog HERE to learn more and to link your project up.

I made a shape card for my project.

I used my Gypsy to weld two sunshines together (5.5" each). And then I cut an extra base layer so that I could cover the fold. The pretty polka dot paper is by Doodlebug Design called Petite Prints. I had an awesome friend send it to me and I'm using every little scrap of it, I just LOVE it that much! I inked all the edges and did faux stitching as well. The BEAUTIFUL happy face is by Peachy Keen Stamps and is called 4" Happy Lashes - Open Mouth. I used some Glossy accents on part of her eyes and her nose. The sweet little 'SMILE' sentiment is from My Creative Time's Turn That Frown Upside Down stamp set. I chalked the cheeks in an orange/yellow shade. And added a sheer ribbon bow.  I definitely hope this card will make someone SMILE!

Pam has got a beautiful card using this cut and some BEAUTIFUL dots and stripes paper (I already sneaked a peek), so make sure you stop on over and see the details on how she made her card HERE. And if you want to join the Simply Crafts Challenge click HERE.

Have a sunshiny day! Hugs- Glora
