Hi, I made this for my friend to give at a shower. The invitation was blue and brown so I tried to use those colors.
I cut the umbrella from an old Quickutz die with a scrap of Authentique paper I had in my stash. The new Spellbinders Umbrella Trio die would work well too. I added rhinestones to the centers of the stars on the umbrella.
I cut a white oval using the new Spellbinders Oval Bliss die and then sponged Antique Linen distress ink onto it using the die as a stencil. The yellow dotted paper is from an older 12x12 DCWV paper pad. Once I liked the shading on the circle, I adhered the umbrella using Joy! Foam pads. I doubled up the pads on the center of the umbrella to add more dimension and give a rounded appearance to the die. The sides are also popped with Joy! Foam Pads but I didn't add an extra layer so the sides would sit closer to the paper.
For the brown layer I cut a piece of Kraft card stock but then decided I wanted something a little darker so I brushed distress ink around the edges to darken the Kraft paper before I glued the layers together. I added a baby stamp from my stash, a bow with a small button and voila! This was a quick card if you need something for a shower in a snap.
Thanks for stopping by!
