Hello crafty friends! It's day 2 of the new Simon Says Stamp Let's Chill release. Simon is having a promotion in celebration of this new release using code PRISM
This release is super fun and super chill! The cards practically make themselves!🤣🤣
Of course my favoite item in this release would be the Beach Party Umbrellas background die. It's no secret that I love to color and that it's my therapy on a difficult day.
So let's dive into how I made this fun and colorful card! I began with an A2 size top folding card base made from smooth white card stock. I then cut another piece of white card stock to make a panel that would leave a white border. I then placed the panel into my MISTI and stamped the umbrella background stamp using copic friendly black ink. Then, using lots of shades of my favorite copic colors, I colored in all the umbrellas and used a white gel pen to add some highlights.
I then die cut the Hello, Sunshine sentiment three times out of heavy weight card stock and glued them together for stability and thickness. I also die cut the shadow from red card stock and shaded it a bit around the edges with dark red distress ink to help make the sentiment pop! I added the die cut sentiment to the bottom of the card so the umbrellas would take center stage. I added some flat back pearls to the centers of the unbrellas.
I made a quick little video that briefly shows you the process of making this card.
