Here's a cute card I made using a free image from artist Sandra Caldwell. So cute, huh? If you like it, drop on by and grab it at Babycakes Doodle This and That, be sure and leave her a thanks. I am showing off this image using amazing orange papers from Paper Temptress. What a bright sunny day it is and the oranges are gleaming here.
The base of the card actually has mica in it, so it sparkles and shimmers in the light. It's called Mangue Sparkle. The image is a digital stamp, so I ran it through my printer using Neenah Solar White cardstock. Works gorgeously in the printer for digital stamps and then for use with coloring with Copic Markers. Behind the image I have a portion of the Hambly Studio Overlays. These Overlays are 12x12" sheets, but each piece works so wonderfully that I get them in 6x6" sections and then carve them up as needed for my cards. As you can see, the small portion of the screen that I used here all matches and makes a delightful background for the image on this card. This overlay is called Orange Mod Circles. If you like using the overlays, I would recommend getting one of the 6x6" packages that comes with an assortment of sheets. The final paper I used on this card was some amazing Mica to cut out the detailed corner die cuts. That shimmery cardstock is called Flame.
Hope this sunny card has made you feel warm and bright today. Happy Summer and I hope it will be filled with lots of wonderful crafting.
