Happy Friday. What a grey day it is here on the Isle of Wight. We have a weather warning due to heavy rain which may put pay to our lunchtime trip to watch the Red Arrows (Summer absolutely loves all things Red Arrow since we watched them perform at Cowes Week last year from Mum and Dad's garden). So what better way to celebrate a grey day than with an 'Every Cloud has a Silver Lining....' card using the Ronald McDonald House Charity Sprinkles of Life stamp set.
This card was inspired by a project made by a very talented French demonstrator Katia. Such a clever fancy card. You have to open it for the surprise.
It has a clever spiral pop up made from a circle punched with the 2 1/2" Circle Punch. You cut the circle in to a spiral and attach the spiral inside your card with two glue dots (one on the centre of the spiral and one on the alternative outer side of the spiral). If you close the spiral and close your card base you ensure your pop up with sit flat when the card is closed.
Once your spiral is secure you can attach your decorations. I have used clouds stamped in Encore Silver ink and punched with the Tree Builder Punch. But this style of card could be customised for any event or occasion by using pop up flowers, butterflies or any stamped image you fancy.
I punched Dazzling Diamonds Bitty Butterflies and glued them to the clouds for an extra bit of sparkle and texture.
For the front of the card I used Cherry on Top Washi Tape to create a flash of blue for the sky and added Metallic Sequins to represent rain.
