|Raindrop Paper by American Crafts|
Hey there! Today the Design Team is sharing projects that we were inspired to create. Last month, I attended the Scrapbook Mega Meet with my Mom and Grandma and had my heart set on buying some fun patterned paper.
When I came across this raindrop paper from American Crafts, I fell in love with it! I knew I had a baby shower coming up soon, and this paper inspired me to create an umbrella card.
To be honest, I'd never used my Stitched Umbrella Die and had been itching to - this was the perfect time!
The backside of the paper had the gray/white stripes - perfect for my little rain clouds! I also cut the clouds out in white to 'shadow' them. When I originally layered them (without the white), it was difficult to see where one cloud ended and the other began.
Shadowing your die cuts is a great way to add some extra oomph! And you don't have to have an actual 'layer' die that's larger - just off-set them a bit.
