Golf...Come Rain or Shine



Today was an unusually warm, sunny spring day in Seattle, in February - but here's a card that was inspired by a scene from the golf course just a few days ago.  Big, ploppy raindrops and guys and their golf umbrellas having a wonderful time. So very Seattle!  Jean Okimoto here - hope you like this card - and know someone who'd love to receive it.

Stamp Candy Cane Stripes on Granny Smith with Onyx Black and heat-set the ink.  Cut the umbrellas.  Cut the golf clubs twice from silver mirror cardstock - trim the second set and use them for umbrella handles.  The Come Rain or Shine umbrellas have their own handles - but I wanted the golf umbrellas to have straight handles.  Picky, picky.

Cut the golf bag from Graphite.  Trim the golf clubs and attach them behind the bag.  Cut Splashing Puddles (the other puddle is hidden behind the circle) and attach it to a 5.5" square card.  

Lay the handles for the umbrellas on the circle and place a foam dot over them.  Attach the umbrella tops to the foam dots.  It's a quick way to secure the delicate handles and add dimension.  Assemble the card and add purple sequins.
