Hello Sunshine

Here's my card for this week's Muse challenge.  My design incorporates elements that are pretty close to those in Bev's original design, but I added a little twist to make the design my own.

Hello Sunshine card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking AloudI started out by die cutting a stitched photo frame from white cardstock.  The opening in the frame was backed with a blue dotted patterned paper panel along with a piece of an orange pinking edged circle "sun."  I adhered the frame to an orange cardstock panel, tilting it on an angle, then topping it with a die cut "hello."  Now my card says "hello sunshine," right?

I edged the orange panel with a narrow strip of navy cardstock to match the die cut word, then added a strip of the same patterned paper I used inside the photo frame.  The panel was adhered to a white card base.  For a final pop of color, I arranged a trio of yellow-orange enamel dots around the cardfront.

Materials Used:
Scripty Hello die (Lawn Fawn); Stitched Frame die (Lil' Inker Designs); pinking circle die (Spellbinders); Pumpkin Pie and Night of Navy cardstock (Stampin' Up!); Collecting Moments 6x6 paper pad (Fancy Pants); orange enamel dots (Freckled Fawn); foam tape


  1. Love the way you carried the patterned paper over from the focal point to an accent strip. And the enamel dots add that little something. Very nice!

  2. Love how you've added the sun - Hello Sunshine! So glad you joined us at Muse this week, Lori!
