Today’s card is one I created for the challenge over at Mojo Monday. I have followed this challenge for some time & seeing as though I am finding it difficult to create at the moment, I thought playing along with a few challenges may get me a little motivated.
I’m not normally a Bright’s person, but I had the “Festive Birthday” DSP sitting on my desk from another project I had created – will show you that sometime next week – & thought “why not?”. I am actually surprised at how much I love this DSP & all the lovely patterns & colours in the pack.
While creating the card, I had a bit of a light bulb moment with the umbrella. I have been wanting to do a fringe along the bottom for sometime but couldn’t really work out how it was going to be achieved & then “Bam” & the brain went into overdrive. Now I am happy with it & looks like the beach umbrella I have & use down the beach.
- Die cut 2 umbrella shapes from the “Umbrella Weather” Framelits in different colours or 1 in DSP & the 2nd in a matching CS colour
- Cut a small “fringe” along the bottom of the CS
- Layer DSP Shape over top with the “fringe” showing a little at bottom
I’ve actually left the sentiment off the card for the moment as I will do that when the occasions arises, although I don’t really think it needs one.
There is still time to play along with Mojo Monday so head on over to check out all the lovely creations.
