Wednesday Card Day – You Make Me Happy When Skies Are Grey

Wednesday Card Day Intro


Hi everyone! Today I’m here with another card for the Simon Says Stamp March Card Kit. This card also uses some great products from Lawn Fawn that aren’t in the kit.

Here is my card —

You Make Me Happy When Skies Are Grey

I started this card with Neenah Solar White card stock cut to a standard size card with the fold on top. I measured and cut the sunshine rays paper from Lawn Fawn’s Hello Sunshine Collection and adhered it to the front of the card. I measured the paper to make sure the rays were at the bottom center as if the rays were shining. I then used the Lawn Fawn Speech Bubble border die using the grey polka dot paper from the same collection to place on top. For the sentiment, I used the orange alphabet stickers from Kelly Purkey included in the kit. I saw this sentiment on Pinterest and knew that it would work well with the card. For the image, I stamped the own and log from Lawn Fawn’s Critters in the Forest set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored it with alcohol markers. I have inexpensive markers from Hobby Lobby that I’m using to learn to blend colors. I’m still trying my best and learning how to blend with the help of YT videos but somehow my finished product don’t match up. But practice makes perfect so I will defintely keep practicing.

To finish the card, I stuck the speech bubble and owl image with foam adhesive and added some sequins from Darice that was included in the kit.
