You Make Me Smile

I spotted something similar to this on Pinterest, but can't seem to find it now.  I didn't see any measurements, so I made up my own.  I think it works pretty well.

Dapper Denim - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2, scored and folded
Color Theory Designer Series Paper Stack (Dapper Denim)
Dapper Denim - 3" x 3"
Whisper White - 2 7/8" x 2 7/8:

When cutting out the adirondack chair, cut it from the 3" x 3" Dapper Denim as you will be covering the hole with your Whisper White Layer.

Be sure to pop it up with your Stampin' Dimensionals.

Tie a piece of Baker's Twine over the card top to bottom.

Be sure to come back tomorrow as I see some changes I want to see on this already!

Thank you for looking in.  Have a Blessed Sunday!

  1. Love it! Your card made me smile. It reminds me of when I was a kid sitting on the porch swing watching it lightening off in a distance in Illinois. The one color theory paper reminds me of lightening! The other crackled paint would have been the swing or the floor of the porch. I spent many an hour watching the sky from the swing. I just might have to CASE your card! But, maybe I will wait to see what changes you make! Love it as much as I love that color theory paper!

    1. I think you will like the remake version. I like it much better myself. I remember sitting on the hill of grass at my aunt's house in Indiana. Laying on a blanket, looking up at the leaves of a giant tree and the clear blue sky.

      Seems like all the paint on everything on that old farm was crackled, but that was part of the charm. Those were the good ol' days!


Thank you for taking the time to check out my blog and leave a comment. I always love hearing from you and I promise to comment back, so come back again!
