Pretty Little Studio: You Are My Sunshine

Wednesday, October 3, 2018

Happy Wednesday, y'all; and just because I haven't said so here in blogland already, welcome to October!  A month from now, Adina will be hitting double digits.  So, I tapped into one of the newest, Pretty Little Studio collections, Savannah Dreams, to make her a birthday card that's just as playful as she is.  Enjoy!
I started this card by anchoring a piece of the Embrace Joy patterned print, with gold-threaded, straight, machine stitching, to the white, cardstock, card face.  I then used that same thread to secure a Best Ever Frame Die Cut in the center of a Just Relax 3x4 Pocket Card; dressed their top left edge up with a Best Ever Frame Die-Cut tab, housing a "beautiful" word sticker from the 12x12 Paper Pack; and popped the result up, with foam tape, in the center of the card face.
I then popped a "you are my SUNSHINE" Happy Place Die-Cut sentiment, which was given a little shimmer and shine with Dazzling Diamonds, up in the center of the combination pocket card/frame...
and tucked a Best Ever Frame Die-Cut tag behind it.  The tag itself was laced with white string, tied in a bow, and split in two to elongate it behind the sentiment.  A Happy Place Die-Cut bird, popped up with foam tape, dresses up the top right corner.
A Happy Place Die-Cut kitten, popped up with more foam tape and tucked into the bottom right corner of my design, completes the look.
Thanks, as always, for humbling me with a visit!  Have a blessed fall, friends!
