Sunshine & Smiles #2

Paper Pumpkin is Stampin' Up's monthly subscription box. February's "Sunshine & Smiles” kit included supplies for 9 cards--3 each of 3 different designs. Kits always include an exclusive stamp set, a mini ink cube, embellishments, and adhesives.

The intended projects are always fun, but I love to find different ways to use the kits and show their versatility.

By adding some cardstock, I created a shutter card to show off some of the images from the kit. There's a rainy scene on the front, but when the card is opened, a rainbow is revealed! There's a cloud edging cut with the Basic Borders die set, but it also works to leave the edges plain.

If you'd like to make this card, check out the video tutorial and the measurements listed below. As always, a link to the supplies can be found at the end of this post.
