Brighter Days with "Harmony" and Avery Elle

Authentique Paper and Avery Elle are teaming up over the next week to bring you tons of "Nautical" inspiration using Authentique Paper and Avery Elle products!

After you check out the projects here on the Authentique Paper blog, be sure to head on over to the Avery Elle blog to find out what the talented members of their Design Team have in store for you today!

********************

Hey everyone, it's Hilary here today with a fun card using the beautiful "Harmony" collection from Authentique Paper along with the "Weather It" clear stamp set from Avery Elle.  I adore the umbrella stamp from this stamp set, and it really makes paper-piecing a unique umbrella, super simple.  I hope you enjoy my card today.

I love the soft subtle patterns and pretty colors of the "Harmony" collection,  I think they were the perfect papers for my card today.


The sentiments from this stamp set are perfect for your friends who may be feeling down, and cheering them up will be super easy when they receive a card like this.  It will certainly brighten their day.


Finish your card with a nice big contrasting wide ribbon is the perfect embellishment as well.


All of the embellishments and background panels were adhered using 3-D glue dots,  for more dimension. 


Thank you all so much for stopping by, I hope I have brightened your day with my project.  

Have a great week!


Supplies used:
From Authentique Paper:  "Harmony" collection.
and from Avery Elle: "Weather It" clear stamp set

Additional supplies needed:  
white cardstock, 3-D glue dots, black archival stamping ink, clear acrylic stamping blocks, misc buttons, wide contrasting ribbon, twine, cloud punch, (Fiskars), and my backgrounds were cut using SVG Cuts downloaded files, (Cards for Mom), and my Eclips2 electronic cutter.
