You are my sunshine

Howdy peeps! Well, it’s nearly the end of March and we are still having some pretty chilly weather out here in southwestern Colorado! I’m up on the Prickley Pear Stamps blog today with a fun fold (you know how I love fun folds!) featuring the You Are My Sunshine stamp set that was just released as part of the Celestial Collection! This stamp set is so stinkin’ cute, I can’t stand it! I had a lot of fun creating this hidden message slider card with it!

I cut the standard A2 size flat card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock along with the slider mechanism from 80# Solar White cardstock (using my Fiskars 12″ SureCut Paper Trimmer). I then cut several panels from coordinating prints in the Keep It Simple Clementine Collection Pack. I stamped the image from the You Are My Sunshine stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, colored it with alcohol markers and fussy cut it. I adhered it to a scalloped square die cut (cut with the My Favorite Things Mini Scallop Square STAX) angled into a diamond shape. I fashioned a loop from green Hemptique Earthy Pastel crafting cord for the pull tab.

I stamped the sentiment (hidden message) on the panel inside the slider and added an Eyelet Outlet 4mm pink pearl strip to the bottom of the slider, which completed the project.

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
