Hello fellow crafters!  I made this card with papers from the new Dotty for You Limited Edition pack available now through the end of May to celebrate National Scrapbooking Month.  You can get yours for only $5 by placing a $35 order on my website from the Spring/Summer Idea Book!  Truly a steal for 24 double-sided sheets of cardstock wight paper!  I simply cut a 4 x 12 inch length to fold in half for the card base.  I cut the same width of the grey dotted pattern and slowly tore it across about 4.25 inches down from the top.  The cloud is carefully cut from one of the patterns and I cut the sun out as a 1.25 inch circle.  The sun’s rays were drawn free-hand after placing the cloud and sun on top of the orange dotty pattern so I could better determine where it should end.

I also used two of the 1-inch Dimensional Elements Heart shapes, sentiment from the My Acrylix Stamp set, “A Blossom,” Grey Wool Ink for the sentiment and to define the edges of the sun and rays, and the Lagoon Baker’s Twine from the new Paradise Assortment.  Here is a tip for keeping twine in place that I learned somewhere in my days of paper crafting.  Use a small hole-punch to notch the paper that your twine wraps around.

Notice the edge of my card where the twine rests in a small, barely noticeable half circle?  This will keep your twine from slipping down the card!
