Sunshine Shaped Card


It’s Sunshine Week at Pazzles! All this week we are sharing sunshine inspired projects to warm your hearts and inspire some bright, cheerful crafting!

Hello Pazzles friends, Melin here today, sharing a super easy and fun card with you. I used the new Spellbinders Digital Die Small Octagon Collection to create this card.


I used some pretty paper from the DCWV Baby Girl Stack. It was so bright and cheery and was just the right color palette for a cheerful and “sunshiny” card. I started by welding the two bases together to create the card base. I cut that layer in plain white cardstock. I then cut the next layer in the patterned paper and then the next layer in some tangerine Bazzill cardstock. I then cut two more layers of patterned papers and then another layer of cardstock. Then I cut several more layers in graduated sizes in various colored cardstocks. The nice thing about these digital dies is that all the layers are already there for you. You simply pull out the layers you don’t need for your project and you are ready to roll. There is no guess work involved. I inked the edges of the various layers with some of my CTMH Ink pads.

I then created a little tab with my sentiment by using my Pen Tool and then cutting it out. While this font wasn’t a single stroke font, it was thin enough and small enough that it worked well with the Pen Tool. There are lots of fonts out there that would potentially work, so be sure to take a second look at some of your fonts! I finished off the card by adding a bow of ribbon, a button and some twine to the center. Quick, easy and the perfect card to send a little sunshine and cheer someone’s way!

    I am feeling warmth of the sun from your Sunshine card! I love how you have layered the elements of the cutting file using pretty coordinating papers and cardstock.

    Very pretty. The dies look like a lot of fun to work with.
    (I need to leave this open on my desk top. We will have rain all week–and it’s cold too.)
