Everything appears more clear...

I was inspired by the sentiment I used for my card.  I saw the word bright and was inspired to make a sun.  The word clear inspired me to use a clear card base.

You may have noticed I have been using some "kraft" colored thread the past several days.  Well... I ran out of my favorite white thread and I am NOT going to use the thin junk I have... so "kraft" it is.  Being that I live in a small town with no craft stores, I had to order some.  Until I receive my order of FOURTEEN SPOOLS (yes, I am serious), I will be using the colors other than white that I have.  It's keeping me from going into full-blown withdrawal.  LOL

I created the sun using some Nestabilities circle dies.  The rays were created free-hand by cutting little wedges and then taping them around the back-side of the circle. 

I had a hard time photographing the inside of the card because the clear card stock isn't very pliable.  Here is a peek:

Stamps: Clearly Sentimental about Birthdays
Ink: PTI black
Paper: Kraft, White, Smoky Black, So Saffron, clear card stock
Accessories: Janome sew mini, saffron brads, red line tape, red line dimensionals, ric rac ribbon


  1. Seriously, if only I could hang with you for day or so in hopes that a little of your creativity would rub off on me, I'd be set! Love that sun! Kraft thread? I don't get out much obviously as I've never seen it before! Looks awesome!!

  2. Well, you know I LOVE the kraft thread!!! :) Like Dawn, never seen it before... And I love the clear card base and your cute little sun. Hope your day is bright and sunny. Say hi to Piffle for me!

  8. Just GORGEOUS! I love that sentiment!

  9. Beautiful card Jody - that sun is just perfect with this sentiment! And I have to agree with others - 14 spools does seem a little excessive - how long will that last?

  10. What brand of thread do you use? I have yet to try my machine with the paper crafting.

  11. You ALWAYS inspire me and make me smile Jody... 14 spools... LMAO!!! That should hold you over for at least 2 weeks huh? :)

  12. As I was blog hopping I came across *this* fabulous site! One look at your cards and I subscribed to your feed. You are truly talented. Like Dawn, I wish I could hang with you for a day (or a week) so a bit of that creativity could rub off onto me!

    BTW, tell us a bit more about the thread you use. ...the company that makes it, its weight, etc. A link would be nice too! Is it quilting thread?

    Thanks for sharing!

  13. love that polka dot paper

  14. This is really pretty Jody! And you can get Kraft thread...OMG, I need to find some! Love the kraft look on the card!

  15. Jody - I absolutely LOVE this card!!! Soo cool with the yellow brads and I really like the Kraft thread here!!! Awesome!!!
