My Creative Time: Weird Holiday

Hi, today is Weird Holiday day over on the My Creative Time Blog. We are to pick one of the weird holidays from this site and create a project based on them. I chose Happy Umbrella day, which is the 10th, of February. I also tied it in with Valentine's day since I don't know anyone who celebrates this weird holiday. 

The little Stitched Umbrella  was cut out in red card stock, white card stock, and floral pattern paper. The pole was colored in with a Copic marker and the handle was covered with Wink of Stella. A little twine bow was added to the pole as well. 

The sentiment and little hearts are from the You Are My Sunshine Stamp Set.  Wink of Stella was added to each little heart after they were glued onto the white mat. The white card stock mat, vellum mat, and floral pattern paper mat were all cut out using the More Stitched Rectangular Dies.  The red card stock mat was cut out using the Stitched Postage Frame Dies.  The mats were then all glued down to the card base that was cut out using the Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies

Products Used:

Recollections: Card Stock
Paper Studio: Vellum
American Crafts: Pattern Paper & Twine
Memento Tuxedo Black Ink
Clear: Wink of Stella
