Rise + Shine Card {Waffle Flower Crafts}

Hello friends,

For the better part of three months, we have been in a deep freeze in Northeast Ohio.  Subzero temperatures, arctic wind chills, epic snowfalls, and seven (7) calamity days (no school for the kiddos).  I haven't seen my lawn since late December and my lllooonngg driveway could double as a hockey rink.

All that's about to change, thankfully.  The spring thaw has begun, so I wanted to make a card in celebration of all things bright and sunny using Waffle Flower Craft's Rain Check stamp set and the Partly Cloudy die.

I covered a card with blue patterned paper and stamps the sun rays onto white card stock. 

TIP: For the gingham rays, I stamped the rays with a light colored pigment ink on the back of the patterned paper and trimmed them out. 

I adhered the rays to the card and added a yellow card stock circle cut with the Flower Circles die set. I just love the dotted detail on the Flower Circle die set. 

I stamped and die cut the clouds and stamped the sentiment on the clouds.  I adhered them to the card with a bit of foam tape. 

I am sooo ready for spring and I hope we see lots of bright, sunshiny days ahead!

Thanks for stopping by!
