Sunshine - die cuts, stamping, foiling

My card full of sunshine to brighten a dark day features stamps and dies from Impression Obsession.

Putting It Together

I love it when a challenge instantly pops an idea into my head. 

I did a dry layout to see if the Geometric Cutout would fit with the sunshine.

I cut Sunshine thee times from a heavy white cardstock. I used the Glue Sponge to stack them. I also tried using it for non-heat foiling.

With the adhesive on the Sunshine, I covered it with the foil sheet.

The Glue Sponge adhesive dries too quickly to work well with foiling. The foil only stuck in a few places.

To fix it, I used a Zig glue pen to add adhesive in spots and press on the foil.

The end result is more mottled than I first intended but I am rather pleased with how it turned out.

To place the stamps, I used the angel from the Misti Creative Corners.

I used the glue pen to adhere the sentiment to the card front from which I had cut the Geometric Cutout. I dry fit it over the gold glitter panel and felt it was missing something.

I used the L from the Creative Corners to add black lines with a pen.

 The black lines give the edges a nice finish.

Inside, I used a background stamp with coral and yellow ink to add a soft design.

I added the front panel over the gold glittered cardstock and then to the white cardbase. I added a retired Stampin' Up enamel dot as the tidle for the "i".

I added a sentiment to the inside. I love this sentiment and try to remember it when I am feeling down.
