I let myself get tempted by a few items from the Clearance Rack last time it got updated. I was pleased to see some paper packs and SS kits I had talked myself out of getting and later regretted. The bright and cheerful Sunny Day SS kit was one of them. I'm glad I was able to swipe a pack for myself - it looks even better in person and I really like the fun die-cuts included in the pack.
So, this is the first project I had time to make with it since receiving the kit. I pulled out my Aviary set, which has been dreadfully neglected since I bought it on my very first order from the new catalogue last July. I'm not sure why I have such a hard time coming up with something using it - I've seen many great cards from other stampers done with it, but I've had a hard time using it myself. Anyway, I gave it a try again this weekend and this is what I came up with.
The sentiment was created by stamping the Thank You sentiment three times on Whisper White cardstock, switching colours each time. The sentiment block was framed with a piece from the Silver Hodgepodge Hardware kit (retiring from the catalogue at the end of the month) and held in place with matching eyelets.
The main image was matted with a piece of Old Olive die-cut with the Top Note die and I added a tab made with paper punched with the small and large oval punches, on which I added a matching button. I doodled a frame with a pink marker and also doodled a scallop border on the card base using the white gel pen. The three panels at the bottom of the card are Designer papers from the SS kit and the top stripe is a sticky border also from the kit. To finish it off, I added a piece of striped Old Olive grosgrain ribbon.
