You Brighten My Day

Brighten someone’s day with a quick and easy card you can make with just a few supplies from Stampin’ Up!

Today’s card is inspired by Global Design Project #GDP022; a sketch challenge.

Global Design Project GDP022

Stampin' Up! Sunburst Thinlits Dies

This card starts with a Sahara Sand card base and a piece of Lost Lagoon cardstock that was sponged with Lost Lagoon ink. The sunburst was cut from So Saffron cardstock using Sunburst Thinlits Dies and glued over the Lost Lagoon piece.

The raindrop patterned paper is from the Wildflower Fields Designer Series Paper that you can get for FREE when you spend $50 or more on any Stampin’ Up! purchase.

A sentiment from the Sunburst Sayings stamp set is embossed with Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder over So Saffron cardstock that was cut using a 2″ circle punch. The circle is adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

A clear Wink of Stella glitter brush adds some shine between the rays.

I hope you enjoyed the card today and head over to Global Design Project to play along with this sketch challenge.
