You are my SUNSHINE Card

Who would have thought using a sketch makes a card look so much better. Originally I was going to just stamp the Sun, die cut it and use a pattern paper layer and stamp the sentiment. Glad I used the sketch which I gave dimension to by recycling some cardboard to make the Sun sturdy. Also, punched several music notes from black cardstock and mounted a punched black glitter music note on top. Used vellum and learned a technique last mth at a stamp event I went to that had us put adhesive on the vellum only where there was paper covering it on top since adhesive can be seen thru vellum. Arranged my papers on top of the vellum, turned it over and then put the adhesive where the paper was placed against the vellum.

Supplies List

adhesive: foam, Scotch ATG, Zig 2 Way glue pen
ink:  Delicata Golden Glitz
paper:  the Paper Studio Music print vellum
   cardstock black, black glitter, yellows, Darice pattern
punch: music note
