Delivering Sunshine Wishes!

Stampin Up Sunshine Wishes Sympathy Cheer Up Card Idea - Mary Fish StampinUp

To add a little “cheer” in someone’s life, I created this “sunshine” card using Stampin’ Up! Sunshine Wishes Thinlits Dies.  I used Crushed Curry to “bring on the sunshine” and Fresh Fig to personalize (she loves purple).

I love hearing from you. If you have a question or thoughts to share about today’s post, please, COMMENT HERE.


  • The perfect weight!  I used “must-have” Thick Whisper White card stock for the standard card base (4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″).

  • The die cut “sunshine” from Sunshine Wishes Thinlits Dies was cropped twice with Thick Whisper White card stock.  I used the Big Shot Precision Base Plate to reduce the “bumps” you sometimes get with detailed dies.

  • For rich dimension . . . Wee bits of Snail adhesive were used to adhere the two “sunshine” die cuts together.  I find this quick, non-messy and a little “forgiving” if you need to nudge them a bit to line up.
  • The angled layer plays up the modern style of the die cuts!
  • The Sunshine Sayings stamp set offers the perfect coordinating message “is on its way!”  It’s cropped with a die from Bunch of Banners Framelits Dies and a pop of Crushed Curry (Regals Enamel Dots), finishes the look.

  • A Fresh Fig pattern from Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack dresses up the envelope flap.  I used my Paper Snips to carefully trim it to fit.

  1. Love this card, Mary. The colors and the angled layer with the multi-layer sentiment really make it beautiful. I can imagine what a nice heft it has since you used the Thick Whisper White for the base and the sentiment layers. Great tips. It made me think immediately of Florida. Have a great day!

  2. This is just perfect! The colors are uplifting. Fresh fig is such a beautiful splash of purple. I’m sure it will bring sunshine to the hands that will hold it.
