Turning to Pinterest for inspiration, I went with something a little nontraditional with a focus more on the geometry of the sun rays. All inspired by this gorgeous backgammon board (which is now on my wish list). Original source can be found here.
The long triangles and multiple colors was something I wanted to pull into my project. It ended up looking something like this. Very nontraditional when you think of blue skies and sunshine, but you walk away with that impression anyway.
The clouds and black starburst acting like a sun help give the suggestion, even with the Hawaiian Shores button. I used both die cut pieces of cardstock joining with a ray stamp to move your eyes across the card.
Yep...there really is an impression plate there. It's gorgeous in real life.
And how about a close up of that sun? Notice the sentiment placement is the same as the vertical card. I thought it was too good to use only once. I used both Limitless Labels Circles in 1.75" and 2.5" to achieve this look of a circle within a circle. The buttons fit in the grooves for some unexpected texture that matches the background. The center bulls eye is from Hello Sunshine and the outer circle stamp is from Take Note.
Hope you enjoyed my projects today. I'll be back tomorrow with some more fun stuff. In the meantime, in between time, check out the PTI blogs for further Hello Sunshine inspiration.
