Hello Sunshine - CASology Challenge Week 201

Hi there! I posted a picture of a card I made on IG and the Sugar Pea Facebook Group and was told it was perfect for this week's CASology challenge, so I've turned it into a blog post to enter - got to be in it to win it!

Guess what the challenge is this week? Sunshine.... Here's the card :)

I think that's sunny enough, don't you? Apologies for the photos, it was an extremely dull day today.

I started by taking a white A2 card base and covering the front with a panel from my Sugar Pea Paper Pad. I then took a coordinating piece of yellow felt (you knew that was coming!) and put some Stick It! on the back. I found that die cutting without something firm on the back made my thin word dies tear a little when I took them out. This stops that and it means you can stick it onto the card without any glue. What's even better is that it is repositionable for a while, making it easier to stick down. I then die cut the word sunshine from my WPlus9 Sunshine Layers die set.

Once the word was stuck down, I added a little Hello from my CB Many Mini Messages in Ranger Lemon Twist with foam pads, and then some yellow enamel dots.

Sunny and simple!

Below is a list of what I used to make this card and where I purchased them. Please note, I DO NOT USE affiliate links :)

Thank you so much for stopping by, have a great week.

A very sunny and bright card, love the addition of felt again, works so well as a word die cut, a lovely contrast to the background. Thank you for bringing the sun back into my day today as it has disappeared. You have also reminded me that I need to use my sun ray stencil from NBUS :)
