Cloudy Day Card

This card reminds me of those great fluffy clouds I use to love to watch as a kid. My thanks to Kristina Weaver who gave me the jumping off point for this card.

I love the fluffy clouds. To get the effect, I dry embossed the paper with my Stampin' UP Texturizing plate (polka dot). I then covered them with embossing ink using my embossing pen. I sprinkled a combination of white and diamond embossing powder over my ink marks, and heated the inks up with my heat tool. I cut the clouds out using my Sizzix Clouds 2 Die.

I layered them onto my cardstock. I cut pennants out of scrap of papers I had in bowl on my desk. I added those to my card using foam tape for dimension. I added my accents with my white gel pen.

I couldn't resist make a boarder using my threading water punch. I added a coordinating cardstock under the scallop to mimic grass.

I am very happy with it, but I already have "new idea" for this card. There are so many possibilities! I hope you like it!
