Heard You’re Feeling Under the Weather

This is another image by Bird’s Cards that has the sentiment around the focal image. I also copied the image and erased everything around the umbrella so it could be cut alone and popped up with foam tape for visual dimension. I printed the image with a laser printer. I colored the umbrella with blue Copic Markers and used a Hero Arts Infinity Circle Die to cut out the circle and then added foam tape behind the umbrella and added it in the appropriate place.

I wanted a background that would really let the focal image and sentiment pop on the page and eventually setting on this pretty background die from Gina Marie Designs from some navy blue cardstock I had in scraps. I adhered the panel to a top folding A2 cardbase with Elmer’s Craft Bond Adhesive and adhered the focal image to the center of the background with liquid glue.

The final embellishments was to add Ranger Crystal Stickles to the raindrops and the card was done.
