After like two weeks of negative freakin' forty below zero weather, yesterday hit almost 50 degrees. . .
BUT it was raining! Depresso. And, to top it all off, I'm sick in bed with a head cold. A chest cold. Body aches. And most likely laryngitis. So much for a long holiday crafting weekend! Now it's nothing but Netflix, Hulu, Dayquil, Nyquil, Ibuprofen, Vitamin C, lemon tea, cough drops, a heating pad, a humidifier and a nebulizer for my forseeable future. Yay.

The base of this A2 sized card is made from Crushed Curry cardstock. In order to create the yellow embossed sunflower, I added three drops of Crushed Curry ink to a tablespoon of white Embossing paste. On a craft mat I mixed the paste well to distribute the ink evenly and then I used a spatula to shmear the yellow embossing paste onto a sunflower stencil. The stencil was placed on a sheet of Very Vanilla cardstock measuring 5" x 3 3/4". Once the paste dried, I removed the stencil and adhered the paper to a piece of Early Espresso cardstock.
I wrapped two different patterns of washi tape around the bottom of the Very Vanilla cardstock and then tied some dark colored twine before adhering it to the Crushed Curry card base. Using a small scrap of Early Espresso cardstock, I die cut the word "hello" from a retired Stampin' UP! die and adhered it to the card using Fine-Tip Glue. Lastly on a small scrap of Very Vanilla cardstock, I stamped the word sunshine in Early Espresso ink, notched both ends and adhered it to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.
Thanks for visiting and have a wonderfully creative day!
