Yesterday, Stampin' Up! released a special PDF download with sentiments perfect for sending cards while we're physically distanced. Plus, all proceeds from the Share Sunshine PDF go to organizations helping fight the pandemic. These sentiments range from sweet to powerful to humorous. There is perfect sentiment for everyone. The PDF also includes a list of all the colors used for each image and the dies and punches that coordinate with each one. How awesome is that!?
To create the faces for my emojis, I punched circles with a 1/8" circle punch. I added black dots to the center to complete the eyes. For the smiles, I used a 1/2" circle punch and cut a tiny sliver from the edge of a piece of Whisper White cardstock. I had way too much fun with this card and I can't wait to send it to someone! Hopefully they will laugh at it as much as I'm imagining them laughing.
For the ribbon, I wrapped two pieces of Red cotton ribbon across the card and secured them with Snail adhesive. I threaded a third piece underneath one of them and tied it in a bow to give the allusion that the ribbon was wrapped all the way around and tied.
The sentiment and its mat are cut with the Stitched Rectangle dies. All of the greetings in the Share Sunshine PDF come in at least two versions. One is black and the other is colored. Some sentiments come in 3 or 4 different colors. This one is Rich Razzleberry, so I mounted it on Rich Razzleberry cardstock. I just love the idea of sending paper hugs!
I hope you are continuing to stamp and send cards to friends and loved ones. It is so important to keep sharing sunshine and paper hugs even when we can't share real ones.
I would love to see the cards you make with this card sketch or cards you make with the Share Sunshine PDF. If you aren't already part of the group, please join me over on Facebook on the On Y Go! Stamping group and share your creations there!
