Summer is coming! Quicker than I realized. Our schools ended last Friday, that has always signified to me the end of Spring and the beginning of summer.
I have to share a little story with you, I have five children the oldest to the youngest is 15 years. So when my oldest was graduating from high school, my youngest was starting Kindergarten. I lived with school buses for about 24 consecutive years. They were just part of my life. When my youngest son graduated from high school and left home I was way over the empty nest syndrome! I was ready for some ‘me’ time. No problem-until that fall, I was driving to work that fall when a school bus pulled in front of me. All of a sudden I realized that I would never have another child riding the school bus! I started crying and cried all the way to work. I was so bereft!!!
So with that said, here is my yellow Sunshine Card.
For this cheery Card I used Whisper White Card Stock for the Card base, then layered a piece of Hello Honey. The piece is from the Perfectly Artistic DSP (sadly SAB no longer available). The pretty flowery print is from the 2014-2016 Color Collections DSP (soon to be retired).
Using Hello Honey Ink I stamped the sentiments on the front and heat embossed them using Stampin’ Up! Embossing Powder. I finished the front adding Candy Dots in Daffodil Delight on each end.
To make the inside match the outside I layered Hello Honey Yardstick on top of the Whisper White, then a layer of Whisper White on the Hello Honey layer. Upper left I used the two DSP scraps and cut the at an angle, adhered them to the card using Snail Adhesive and stamped a sun from the Hello Stamp Set in Hello Honey.
The envelope was lined in the 2014-2016 Color Collections DSP using the Stampin’ Up! Envelope Framelit set.
Summery for sure!
