So, for the options of "rain or shine" I chose both "rain" "shine", and I thought the sketch was perfect for the Sunburst Thinlets.
When I say both rain and shine - the card may be a burst of sunshine, but it's raining balloons!
- base card is Calypso Coral 5 1/2 by 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4.
- Whisper White layer is 4 by 5 1/4"
- DSP (retired SU) is 3 5/8 by 5"
- Daffodil Delight was die cut with the Sunburst die and then embossed with the Softly Falling embossing folder. It was trimmed to the same size as the DSP 3 5/8 by 5"
- The embossed sunburst die cut was adhered to the DSP; these were adhered to the Whisper White layer and then the the card base.
- In the center, the Starburst framelit die was used to die the larger circle using Calypso coral cardstock and adhered to the center of the sunburst die cut.
- The circles framelits die cut the next layer in daffodil Delight cardstock and adhered to the Calypso coral layer using dimensionals.
- The gold glimmer paper circle was punched using the 1 1/2" circle punch and adhered to the Daffodil layer.
- The top layer, in Whisper White was punched with a 1 1/4" circle punch. The sentiment was embossed with gold embossing powder prior to the circle being punched. It was adhered to the gold glimmer paper using dimensionals.
- 3 candles were punched using the Party Punch pack and glued above the word "Happy"
- On a separate piece of Whisper White cardstock, 6 small balloons were punched using the Party Punch pack. The colour was stamped into each balloon using one of the balloon images from "Balloon celebration".
- Each balloon was randomly attached to the front using dimensionals, and a black strong drawn with a fine tipped black pen. Some gold Wink of Stella was applied to the base of each balloon.
