Sunny Cards with Sun and Ray Designs

Start by cutting panel of patterned paper to fit on the front of a card. You’ll also want to cut several strips of patterned paper, which you’ll adhere to the paper panel.

Cut a circle from yellow patterned paper and mount it to the paper panel. Trim any excess paper hanging off the edge of your paper panel.

Place a 3D Foam Circle Frame onto the panel, over the circle. Use your scissors to cut away the excess. Apply flock to the circle. Use your fingers to really mash the flock onto the circle so that no sticky parts are left exposed.

Sunny Card Details

Add two wiggle eyes. Draw a mouth with a pen. Use a pink marker to draw circles for cheeks. Chalk would work as well! Add a bow made with twine or embroidery floss

Complete the card by stamping a sentiment on cardstock and adding it to paper panel. You’ll also want to add a few sequins and a couple photo corners. Affix the panel to a card.

Tip on Using Busy Patterned Papers Combos

Want to use a piece of paper on your card’s background that clashes with your patterned paper strips? Here’s an easy fix for that! Cut a panel of vellum and mount into onto the background paper. The vellum is kinda, sorta… magical! It will soften the color of the background paper!

I used E-Z Runner® Petite Permanent Dots Refillable Dispenser to adhere the vellum to the panel since I didn’t have the E-Z Runner Permanent Fine (used to adhere vellum) in my stash. To hide my adhesive, I placed embellishment and paper strips over it but I like the dotted background that peeks behind them.
