Hi everyone! I am so sorry for being very late with my Paper Players DT card...I hope our hostess Jaydee and the rest of the gang will forgive me! We've had a very busy week as the school year winds down and with only 2 more days to go, we're in the home stretch! And that's perfect for Jaydee's theme challenge this week...SUMMER!
Doesn't that look like fun?! Love the photo and I took inspiration for my card from the clean graphic elements:
It's difficult to tell in the photo but the main panel with the sun is popped up on dimensionals. I used a 3 3/4" x 4" piece of Daffodil Delight. I free-hand drew sun rays onto a piece of Summer Smooches DSP, cut them out and adhered them to the main panel. I cut a 3" circle from more Daffodil Delight and ran it through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice embossing folder. Then I trimmed all the edges of the main panel to square up all the bits of paper.
Of course, those are my favorite "cupcake clouds" stamped in Tempting Turquoise with words from Fabulous Phrases and punched with the Cupcake Builder punch. I used a 2-way pen to add a little Dazzling Diamonds to the edges.I didn't want a really bulky knot so I literally tied on a little piece of Lucky Limeade ruffled ribbon with some matching Baker's Twine. Makes for a different kind of "bow" and adds a touch of whimsy. Whimsical is just what I need as this little card will get tucked in my daughter's backpack on her last day of school...hello summer vacation!!!
Be sure to check out the rest of the design team for their fabulous projects! Jaydee's challenge will end this Friday, June 8th at Noon (PST). Thanks for stopping by tonight!
