Weathered Friends

 I do not know what it is about rain that affects my mood. It could be the sound, the smell, the fresh clean look, or the coolness. No matter the reason, the effect is my calm, somber mood of reflection. I also like watching the rain fall past my window. Such is the inspiration for this card.

   Under My Umbrella

   Poppy Parade A-2
   Pool Party 5-3/8 x 4-1/8
   Whisper White 5-1/4 x 4 (2), 3-1/4 x 4
   Smoky Slate 4 x 3

   Archival Basic Black
   Pool Party

   Pool Party
   So Saffron
   Basic Black

   Die Cutting

   Umbrella Builder Punch
   Hearth & Home Framelits Dies
   Glitter & Clear Epoxy Shapes
   Glue Dots

First, I die cut the window frame. I placed it on my card front, and penciled in the corners of the panes. This way, I could stamp my raindrops within the panes and not outside of the window frame.

Next, I stamped and punched out my umbrella. I colored it in with my markers.

I then adhered the window frame and stamped the boots and sentiment. I colored the boots using my markers.

I attached the umbrella with dimensionals and added a few clear epoxy raindrop shapes.

Lastly, I adhered the card front to the Pool Party panel and then onto the card base. The other Whisper White panel is adhered to the inside of the card.

  1. Great card to send to a friend. Love the rain in the window. It does give a calm soothing feeling when it is falling.

  2. I like the rain, too. I especially like thunderstorms! I like your card, and the sentiment goes so well. It's raining here in southeastern NC as I write this.
