Happy Shower! - SimonSaysStamp Monday Challenge

Hi Everyone 

I'm back with another card...actually 2 cards created for the SimonSaysStamp Monday Challenge: MONOCHROME!!!!!  

This challenge gave me the idea to create a baby shower card. One for a boy and the other for a girl, so I went with traditional Pink and Blue tones. Voila, here is what I came up with. 

I used the 2 largest Stitched Rectangle stackable dies from Lawn Fawn to die cut the polka dot paper and cardstock. The smaller rectangle cardstock pieces were stacked together so I can use the Puffy Cloud border to cut it at the same angle. Having the border stitched markings made it really easy to line it up straight to form the rectangle again. The clouds were die cut and distressed with distress ink. 

The umbrella and character are from Mama Elephant's Up & Away stamp set. They were stamped, embossed and coloured in with Copic Markers. I didn't have the coordinating dies so I had to manually cut it out myself leaving a white border around it. For the tiny bow, I didn't leave a border as I wanted it to look like it was part of the character. I cut a slit in the character's hand to tuck a bit of the base of the umbrella so it looked like it was holding it. Then I adhered it to the card using 3D foam squares so it looked like it was floating in the sky. Lastly I sprinkled the sky with diecuts of hearts and mini dots. 

Materials used on both cards :
- Lawn Fawn - Large Rectangle Stackables 
- Lawn Fawn - Puffy Cloud Borders
