On Cloud Nine ... with Papermilldirect

Happy Easter to you all, my sister and little niece are visiting this week and so it's been lovely to see the children playing together and enjoying a little Easter Egg Hunt.  Lots of chocolate and treats and family time and so not much time for crafting, but I have a card to share with you today.  It's my turn to work with the +papermilldirect Special Offer this week and when I saw it, I thought wow isn't that a beautiful shade of blue!!  

It's called 'Sea Blue' 120gsm and is available at a Special Price of just £2-70 for a 30 sheet pack of A4. You will find it in the Special Offers section over at Papermilldirect. (link here:)

The Sea Blue 120gsm is such a bright and cheerful shade, I thought it would be perfect to use for a happy themed bright card.
Card base is Papermilldirect Plain White card, scored, folded, and trimmed to create a 5.5” x 5.5” card blank.

I used the ‘Sea Blue’ as the main colour for this card; it was perfect to represent a bright blue sky. PMD White Hammered card was used to give a hint of fluffiness to the clouds. Keeping with the bright colour scheme I chose PMD Raspberry Pink and Apple Green to create the Kite, attaching with 3D foam pads to give height.
The Sea Blue was also great to cut in my Cricut Explore, you can see how cleanly it cut the wording. I added a little Stickles to the lower edges of the clouds and small sparkly blue gems to finish.
Cloud Nine, clouds and kite cut on the Cricut Explore using files from with the Cricut Subscription which I resized to suit my project.

Materials Used:
Papermilldirect Sea Blue 120gsm Offer Card, Plain White, Raspberry Pink, and Apple Green card.
Adhesives Used: Cosmic Shimmer Glue, Double Sided Tape, 3D Foam Pads
