I think this is my first time making a card using the card feature on a Cricut cartridge. I searched through the suns I had and found this cute shaped card on Something to Celebrate. This is also one of the few times that I have used only one cartridge to make a card.
I cut the card base out of white cardstock and then started adding layers. My colored cardstock is all from Stampin’ Up. I added a layer of turquoise, three layers of the yellow/gold and two layers for the white cloud. Inking was all done with Tim Holtz Distress Inks.
I used my Cuttlebug to emboss the sun, using a new folder called Charles. It has a neat chevron pattern of small dots. I used Divine Swirls on the cloud and Swiss Dots on the pink “Happy”. I traced the lines of the swirls on the clouds with Glossy Accents and sprinkled with Martha Stewart crystal glitter. Then I used Glossy Accents around the edges of the cloud and sprinkled with MS coarse glitter.
