You Are My Sunshine


Repeat Rockstar, Dawn Bennett, challenged us all to make a double dutch fold card.  Me, not knowing how to make one, checked out the great tutorial found here on Splitcoast Stampers.

So, following the directions on the tutorial, I made the card base with black cardstock and patterned paper from Bo Bunny.  Then, for my image, I did a little masking and repeatedly stamped the Repeat Impressions image of "My Sunshine" (8402-M), with the help of a post-it note and my stamp positioner, onto X-Press It cardstock using Marvy black dye.   I then colored the background sunflowers very faintly with Copic markers.  Then, I stamped the image again, and colored it with bright, bold Copic markers and cut around the image using my Cutter-bee scissors.  I then placed it over one of the flowers in the scene I created to create some dimension.  The sentiment, which is also part of the "My Sunshine" (8402-M) image, was then stamped by inking it only with a Memento tuxedo black marker and placing it above the sunflowers.

Paper piercing, faux stitching with a white colored pencil, and a black sheer ribbon put the finishing touches on this card.
