Die cut reveal-SUN-SOUS

Oh oh oh... I'm so happy happy happy its Friday.   First of all since I start my 4 week vacay today and secondly its die cut reveal for us girls over at SOUS.. I absolutely love our die cut challenges, since creating these fun projects gives me so much joy..
For this weeks die cut challenge, we were asked to use a SUN shape on our project.. After pondering on what type of project to create, I decided to put my SIL design software to good use and created this card.  Its a Styrofoam coffee cup shape with some fun summer elements decorating it..

I was able to create the shape card using the offset option in the SIL software.. You can create ANY shape card using this handy tool.. just offset your shape and then mirror to the left, merge it over so it touches the other offset image and weld.. super fun and soooooo easy..  and remember, if you have any questions on how I create any of my projects, please feel free to ask and I will be more than happy to help you create one for yourself.  You can email me, leave a comment with how I can reach you or find me on Facebook :)

Hows a few close ups:

laying flat on its back, like I'll be doing the next 4 weeks..LOL

you can see the layers here.. I once again used lots of foam tape and I inked all of the edges with various colors of distress inks..  adding drops of white liquid pearls for some detail.

Here you can see the sunflowers and leaves..

For supplies used to create this card:

White cardstock
digital papers from Sweetshoppedesigns
