July Cards Magazine Publication (and an Announcement!)

Today I've got a card to show you that is featured in the July 2011 issue of Cards Magazine! I adore this card and was so excited it was picked up for publication! Those bright yellow wellies would cheer anyone up, don't you think? :)

I stamped the wellies, cut them out, and clipped them together with a mini clothespin. I stamped the umbrella onto some pretty paper, cut it out, and adhered it to the card using foam squares for dimension. I stamped the little raindrops, umbrella handle, and sentiment directly on the cream card base. I finished the card with a wee bow made of baker's twine.

Now for my announcement - I've been asked to be a member of the Design Team for the Kraft Outlet! As a big fan of kraft products, shipping tags, and the like, I am thrilled to get to use these wonderful products! Head over to the blog (Kraft Journal) for some inspiration and a fun challenge every week. If you like kraft like I do, you'll love to play over there with us!

Supplies: Stamps - Scattered Showers/Additions (PTI), Cardstock - Vintage Cream (PTI), Ink - YoYo Yellow, Brocade Blue, Basic Black, Riding Hood Red (SU!), DP - Citrus Stack (DCWV), Baker's Twine (Country Clean), Clothespin (Hero Arts)

    Thanks for your lovely comment on my tree card. I colored it with Derwent pencils, to me those are the best to color on kraft!
