So what comes to my mind with the word "wet"?
Well... rain of course! But in a good way.
When we were little, our parents would always tell us to take an umbrella to school... To not get wet because we might get sick... But you know what?! One of the best experiences a child could experience is to actually play in the rain.
So you agree with me, right? Sometimes it's better to just let go (of your umbrella, of your limitations, of your inhibitions) and enjoy the rain (or whatever challenges we may face).
As the famous quote says: "Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass; it's about learning to dance in the rain." - Vivian Greene
So, here's my simple card to reflect that sweet and fun childhood memory:
This is a simple card with handmade embellishments. I created the umbrella using my circle punchers and special scissors. And used my own (eeeeew) handwriting to write the sentiment and border. And then lastly, I glued the silver rhinestones to look like drops of rain.
You can make your own embellishment and card too! Here's how:
- Round Punchers (2.25" and 2")
- Plain paper
- Patterned paper
- Scalloped scissors
- Double-sided tape
1. Punch out 2 circles. The larger one with the plain paper and the other with the patterned paper.
2. Place the two circles together, make sure the smaller piece is centered on the larger circle.
3. Fold in half.
4. Cut along the fold using scalloped scissors.
5. Cut out a long "J" with the plain paper to serve as the handle. Place on top of the plain half circle we cut earlier. Place double-sided tape.
6. Place the smaller patterned half circle on top. You now have your umbrella.
Just place this on your card, write your sentiment, decorate more to your taste and woalah! You now have your own card.
