Dancin' in the Rain: Creative Cafe' KOTM

Hello everyone!  It's Laura with a pick me up Get Well Wishes card using The Rubber Cafe' KOTM:

To make this card:
Base: 4&1/4" by 5&1/2" white cardstcok

First Layers: Stamp raindrop stamp using Memento Luxe Bahama Blue Ink along top edge.  Cut a 3&1/4" by 4&1/4" piece yellow pattern paper as a mat for 3" by 4&1/4" piece aqua raindrop pattern paper.  Adhere these directly under stamped raindrops.

Tear a piece of washi tape (about 2&1/4") and stick to bottom right side of card.  Attach "Get Well Soon" sentiment stamped on a small scrap of yellow pattern paper.

Cut a 1&1/2" by 3&1/2" piece of rainbow stripe paper, adhere to left side of raindrop paper about 1/4" from bottom.

Here is a close up of the first layers:

Two notes/tips here....I do not show the bow....I took the picture before I glued everything down....make sure to add your bow to the upper edge of the yellow/aqua raindrop piece before you glue it down! get your raindrops centered well....stamp in the MIDDLE of the cardstock first, then work your way to the edges.

Next step, stamp the "life isn't about waiting" sentiment on yellow pattern paper, trim down (1&1/2" square) then mat with a small piece of aqua cardstock (add 1/8"--so 1&5/8").  Cut Fancy Framed Tags Two frame out of pink dot pattern paper, use foam dots to attach sentiment to frame.

Add a piece of washi tape to top edge of rainbow stripe paper in center of card (about 3" long with top edge about 1/4" from top edge of blue raindrop paper), then glue sentiment to this piece using Scrap Happy Glue.

The umbrella is stamped on white cardstock in Black Tuxedo Memento Ink and cut out using Spellbinders Classic Circles.  The umbrella is stamped again on the floral print paper, the top fussy cut out, and foam taped to the original image.

I stamped and fussy cut a few flowers, using Queen and Co bubbles for centers and for a few "raindrops" under the umbrella.

Love that this card is bright and cheerful to cheer up a friend or family member!

Thanks for stoppin' by the cafe' today!
