What Happened to our Sunshine??

Hello stampers and welcome to Wednesday!

I can't help but be a little disappointed when I see that today is overcast.  I was so enjoying the abundant sunshine we've been having.  I'm hoping we'll go back to our Indian Summer soon.  Don't you just love sunshine coupled with cool breezes?  Since today is a little gloomy, I guess we'll have to create our own sunshine and I have just the card to do that!  Take a look!

This simple card will add a jolt of sunshine to anyone's day.  The triple layered flower is made using a stamp from the a la carte section of the Stampin'Up! "big" catalog.  It is called, appropriately, Triple Treat Flower and sells for a mere 8.95.  Stampin'Up! makes a punch that matches up with each layer, so all you do is  stamp the flower three times in different colors, then punch each layer out with its matching punch and you are finished in less than a minute.  No tedious trimming for you! 

The flower is adhered to a scalloped square ( Big Shot Die, Scallped Squares Duo) with a strip of Scallop Dots ribbon in Old Olive underneath the flower.  That square is then adhered to a larger scalloped square (Big Shot Die, Scallop Square) and then the whole thing is adhered to a white card which measures 4 3/4 by 4 3/4.  Yes, it will take a larger envelope to mail this, but as long as your envelope isn't square, it will still go for the usual 44 cents. 

Here's the list of supplies, with item numbers, just in case you want to go to my site to order at  Ordering is available 24/7, so you can even shop in your jammies and everything will be sent right to your door.  Think of the gasoline you'll save!
