Rainy Day

Believe it or not but today it is not a rainy day but I still wanted to use this die for a square card to have on hand in case I need one for a wedding or baby shower in the future.


I used the Cheapo Die called Rainy Day. I die cut it three times in white, light blue and a darker blue. Then I placed it on another shade of blue card stock die cut with the Gina K. Designs single stitch square die which in turn was layered onto a light green shade which was cut with my guillotine cutter. After I had added all the puzzle pieces from various die cuttings of the design with Connect Glue from Gina K. Designs I then added the whole layout to a white square card base. It ended up being a 4 1/4 inch square card.

I am entering this in the Dies R Us Challenge #98 - Sunshine and Clouds. And, since I have only a very few minutes left I best get it posted.

Whatever the weather your way I hope the day is going great for you.

God bless,
Verna
