Everyone needs a little cheering up sometimes, right? I made this card to send to a friend who was going through a rough patch in her life about the same time that I too was going through sadness from having to put a beloved furbaby to rest. Focusing on making a card to help cheer someone else up seemed to help ease some of my own sadness.
My friend is a fan of all things kawaii and Hello Kitty, so I decided to use this Hello Kitty with umbrella image from the Hello Kitty Greetings Cricut cartridge. Cutting file for clouds and raindrops were created in Make the Cut and the grassy background border was cut using Lawn Fawn's Stitched Hillside die.
On the inside, I used Karen Burniston's Katherine Label Pop Up mechanism to animate my card. As the card is opened, a rainbow and Hello Kitty pop up and rise up to the top of the card.
Paper pieced rainbow and clouds cut file comes from Cricut's Once Upon A Princess cartridge. Cutting files for Hello Kitty with balloons and blue birds were created in Make the Cut design program from coloring book images. I hope that this simple card brought even just a little bit of sunshine into my friend's day!
