Sunny Summer Smiles

Good morning everyone;
I hope you are all having a great week so far. We are having some nice warm weather this week. So nice to shed those big winter coats.

I made this card for tonights class. You know me, I can't resist fun cards and fancy folds. These stair step cards are the greatest. You can use soooo many different stamp sets, from fun to elegant.

I embossed the images with black and painted them with Tombows. The stamp set is from Impression Obsession. I used pieces of sandpaper for the sand and cut a piece for behind the sentiment. I cut out all the pieces (which was a bit tricky as the are quite small) and I colored the edges with a black marker so no white would be visable from where I cut them out. I then used bits of painters tape to position them. When I had them in the right places I glued them down. I am pretty sure this card is Stickleless.....lol. Is that even a word?
Anyway I hope you like it...I have great fun making it!

Have a great day and Thanks for popping in.....
