You Are My Sunshine

A message of “I love you” doesn’t have to be sent with serious hearts and flowers. Chari Moss of Lawn Fawn shows us with this card that a message of love can be cute, fun and lighthearted, too!

You Are My Sunshine by Chari Moss

Supplies | Stamps: Lawn Fawn (Sunny Skies). Paper: Lawn Fawn (Bright Side). Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (Kraft). Ink: Tsukineko Versafine (Onyx Black), Tsukineko Versamark (Embossing), Hero Arts (Tide Pool, Orange Soda). Embossing Powder: American Crafts Zing! (White). Misc.: Ranger Stickles (Orange Peel, Stardust). Pen: Signo Gel (White).

To create the card’s background, Chari framed a piece of patterned paper with a kraft background. To “anchor” the patterned paper, Chari outlined it with a frame of hand drawn lines.

Chari stamped her shapes on patterned paper, which is a really hot trend right now. It’s also a great way to use your scraps! She turned her stamped images into die cuts by cutting them out following the shape of the stamp’s outline.

To add more dimension to the shapes, Chari embellished them with Stickles. The glitter glue adds both texture, and visual accent to the pieces.
