Hello Sunshine Card Tutorial - Lori Whitlock July Blog Hop

Hey friends! Today is Lori Whitlock's July Blog Hop and my blog is the first stop on the hop. But be sure to visit Lori's site because she has a sale, a giveaway and an awesome freebie for you!

For my project today, I found a cutting file for one of Lori's adorable cards called Sunshine Get Well (link below). I loved this card so much but I wanted to change the sentiment from Get Well to Hello Sunshine and turn that cloud's frown upside down!

Hello Sunshine Card with Sun, Rainbow & clouds

To do this: 1. Highlight the cloud shape, right click > Release compound path. 

2. Right click > Ungroup 

3. Highlight smile, right click > Flip Vertically 

4. Highlight the entire cloud, right click > Make compound path. 

For this card, I used white cardstock for the base. Then I added the cute 6x6 cloud paper called Barnyard from Echo Park’s Fun on the Farm collection (designed by Lori Whitlock).  

The sunshine (and it's pink cheeks!) were made of Doodlebug's 6x6 gingham and linen petite prints. And for the rainbow, I used Doodlebug's 6x6 inch dot and stripe petite prints.

The adorable yellow “Sunshine” paper in the background is from the Bella Blvd, You are my Sunshine collection. 

I love this card. I hope it inspires you to play with cutting files and if needed ... tweak them a bit to fit your needs.

While you're hopping through the creative team's fun projects, don't forget about the other great things Lori has for you today!

  1. I love the idea of making it a summer Hello card. In fact when I first saw this card that is what I thought of originally. Thank you for sharing.
