Playing in the Rain, Beautifully Happy, Thinking of You Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello! So happy to share today's card with you. I was looking through the "Rain or Shine" 12" x 12"package of Designer Series Paper (DPS) and found these fun rain drops. So I pulled the sheet out. Then I found another fun sheet with a fox, a bunny and a turtle on them. And there's lots of embossing on the sheet. The fox here has his hat and shirt embossed.  So cute! Read on to see how I made this card.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. It opens on the right and the fold is on the left.

I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Balmy Blue for the large layer. Then in the center of that piece, I die cut the 4th largest stitched rectangle from the "Rectangle Stitched" framelits set.  Once that was cut I taped the Balmy Blue piece to the front of the card.

A 3-3/4" x 5" piece of DSP was cut for the next layer. Those raindrops are also embossed. I taped that to the Balmy Blue layer.

Next I die cut the Basic White stitched rectangle using the 5th die in the same "Rectangle Stitched" set. I stamped Balmy Blue rain drops on it. They are from the "Playing in the Rain" set. I did stamp off once before I stamped on the rectangle. 

Before I taped the two rectangles together, I took some Balmy Blue ribbon I had and taped two pieces to the Balmy Blue rectangle. I did snip the piece of ribbon because I wanted to make sure it wouldn't be bulky and bulge on the Basic White piece. The Basic White piece was taped on top and then the rectangles were centered on the front of the card using Dimensionals.

The fox was fussy cut out. There's matching dies but I didn't buy the set, so I had to fussy cut. It wasn't too bad. The umbrella handle was a bit touchy and a weak spot but I managed!! LOL Dimensionals were added to the back and the piece was set in place on top of the rectangle.

The words are from the "Beautifully Happy" set and were stamped using black Memento ink on a scrap piece of Basic White card stock. I punched them out using the "Double Oval" punch. I also took a scrap piece of Balmy Blue and punched out the scalloped oval from the same punch. I taped the two pieces together. A Dimensional was added to the bottom left and tape to the upper right and the piece was set in place on the front of the card. And that completed the card. 

This was a fun and pretty quick card to make. Even with the fussy cutting, I can see myself making another one in the near future.

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop in and see today's thinking of you card,
