"Pocketful of Sunshine" card

Sorry for the blurry picture - YUCK!

The idea for this card came from Natasha Bedingfield's song "Pocketful of Sunshine". Initially I was going to make the pocket look more "jean-like" but the patterned paper screamed for some bright blue. I free-handed the pocket's flaps by using the Martha Stewart scoring board and attached using double-sided red tape.

The sentiment was cut using the Cricut and Sure Cuts a Lot 2. I cut the words out of pink vinyl. I used the negative part of the vinyl on the top and the letters for "Sunshine" on the pocket.

The sun was attached with some yellow rick-rack and sits inside the pocket for a little surprise. The file is from Lettering Delights Banner Day svg file. I first cut it in orange cardstock and than yellow. I also white-line dashed it and added a yellow button to the middle.

Supplies Used:
Patterned paper and flower border: Sweet Summertime paper pack (Echo Park)
Sun svg file: Banner Day (Lettering Delights)
Jewels, Rick-Rack, and Button: personal collection
Dash-line: White Pen (Gelly Roll)
Vinyl: Lipstick (Oracal 361)
