April Showers cu 06029
Today we are taking another look at the Our Daily Bread designs April Release! Don’t you just love the umbrella & cloud dies and the fun sets to go with them? Seems like I’ve been using them non-stop since they first arrived! For my card today, I wanted to use bright, happy colors to go with these fun dies & images. I just had it in my head that little polka dots are happy so I went searching my stash for them.

I came up with some bright pink, blue & lime green dotty paper so that’s what I used. I die cut the white front, then die cut the clouds out of it to use as a negative. The positive clouds were die cut out of the blue dotty paper and added behind.  The greeting was stamped first using the 3 colors of neon ink then overstamped with the black. I think the hint of color really adds a nice touch. The umbrella was cut once out of pink, once in white and the inserts were also cut out of pink. I attached the inserts on top of the white version then rounded it and attached it to the pink version. The grass was cut from the lime green and I added a few tiny punched flowers. After die cutting the gate out of white, I trimmed the top off to make it even and attached it over the grass. The umbrella and a few raindrops were added on top.

Here’s a look at the inside using some leftovers.
