Sunny Days

Hello everyone,

The challenge at For Fun Challenges this week is to create a card with embossing.  As the year 2010 is speeding to an end with lots of activities and year-end functions I opted for a quick card for this challenge. I used the “Swiss dots” folder to emboss the layer at the bottom of the card and added this cute Penny Black image “Sunny Days”.   The sentiment was cut with the Cuttlebug die “Friends”. It is summer now for us in the southern hemisphere and we have experienced already some very hot sunshine days in South Africa. So here is my card to celebrate summer in South Africa.

I entered my card for the following challenges:

I used the following to create the card:

  • White and yellow cardstock
  • Penny Black stamp “Sunny Days”
  • Cuttlebug embossing folder “Swiss Dots”
  • Cuttlebug die “Friends”
  • Spellbinders Nestabilities die “Ovals”
  • Yellow gemstones
  • Twinkling H2O’s for colouring

Hope to see your card at For Fun Challenges this week.

Greetings from South Africa,

Amelia

    I just love this clean and simple card. So elegant and sweet. Wish I knew how to cut around an image without cutting of the top of that flower. Looks fabulous. Tons of hugs, Sharon xoxx
