For my card I decided to keep things really, really clean and really, really simple. When I saw the cue card for the first challenge I immediately thought of my Hero Arts Bold Pop Design set because the largest flower in the set could double very nicely as a sun. I stamped the flower using Memento Dandelion ink and then die cut it using the die that matches the stamp. A regular A2 size card base was made from white cardstock and then a quarter of an inch of cut off one end. This allowed me to position the sun as I did, but still giving me an A2 size card. I cut a piece of white cardstock to fit the card front and then punched out a semi-circle with a 1 3/4" circle punch. The piece was then embossed using a Spellbinders Impressabilities template to give me the subtle embossed look I wanted (it is so subtle it doesn't hard show in my main photo so I took a detail photo so you could see it). The sentiment (from a Taylored Expressions set Delightful Day) was stamped on white cardstock and then punched out using a 1 1/4" punch. The embossed piece was adhered 1/16" foam dimensionals and then the sun was adhered using a 1/8" foam dimensional.
Thanks for stopping by... please check out amazing projects that the rest of the design team has for you: Melissa, Tracey, Jen and Ardyth and I look forward to seeing your CAS creations!!
