Sending Sunshine And Hugs

Hello Crafty friends, I hope your Tuesday is a terrific one so far. First, for those following along with the Psalms reading.
י Yod
73 Your hands have made me and fashioned me;
Give me understanding, that I may learn Your commandments.
74 Those who fear You will be glad when they see me,
Because I have hoped in Your word.
75 I know, O Lord, that Your judgments are right,
And that in faithfulness You have afflicted me.
76 Let, I pray, Your merciful kindness be for my comfort,
According to Your word to Your servant.
77 Let Your tender mercies come to me, that I may live;
For Your law is my delight.
78 Let the proud be ashamed,
For they treated me wrongfully with falsehood;
But I will meditate on Your precepts.
79 Let those who fear You turn to me,
Those who know Your testimonies.
80 Let my heart be blameless regarding Your statutes,
That I may not be ashamed.
Psalms 119:73-80
Today I am sharing a super easy and fun card I made for my Pazzles Design Team with you. I used one of the new Spellbinders Digital Die Small Octagon collection to create this card.

I used some pretty paper from the DCWV Baby Girl Stack. It was so bright and cheery and was just the right color palette for a cheerful and “sunshiny” card. I started by welding the two bases together to create the card base. I cut that layer in plain white cardstock. I then cut the next layer in the patterned paper and then the next layer in some tangerine Bazzill cardstock. I then cut two more layers of patterned papers and then another layer of cardstock. Then I cut several more layers in graduated sizes in various colored cardstocks. The nice thing about these digital dies is that all the layers are already there for you. You simply pull out the layers you don’t need for your project and you are ready to roll. There is no guess work involved. I inked the edges of the various layers with some of my CTMH Inks from the Adventure Ink Pad set.

I then created a little tab with my sentiment by using my pen tool and then cutting it out. While this font wasn’t a single stroke font, it was thin enough and small enough that it worked out with the pen tool. There are lots of fonts out there that would potentially work, so be sure to take a second look at some of your fonts! I finished off the card by adding a bow of ribbon, a button and some twine to the center. Quick, easy and the perfect card to send a little sunshine and cheer someone’s way!
