Sunny Thoughts



This month's stamp exudes spring. It's been pretty cold & dreary here lately, so I couldn't wait to bring a little sunshine in my craft room as I designed these cards. I decided to try a monochromatic card this month; I've seen many consultants do it & think it looks fabulous! But never tried it myself. I used a gate fold card, which worked really well with my design & is very easy. 


You simply cut a piece of cardstock 4 1/4 x 8 1/2. And then score it at 2 1/8 & 6 3/8. You can find the full tutorial here.


I chose bright & vibrant colors from the Adventure palette; Pansy, Pacifica & Raspberry. I used the versatile Basics Fundamentals paper for the backgrounds. The final touches were a little bit of Silver Glitter paper & Clear Sparkles to add just the right amount of bling. I can't wait to send these sunny birthday greetings out!
