Showers of Love

Are you a Mary Poppins fan?  THE Mary Poppins film with Julie Andrews?  The magic of it has stayed with me from my childhood, and was recently reawakened when I saw The Return of Mary Poppins.  I love that for her, umbrellas aren't just a means of keeping dry in wet weather, but of conveying something magical, something fun, something loving.  And so it is that I send showers of love to my friends with this card today.

I used the umbrella from the Little Elephant stamp set. Isn't it amazing how often we overlook the non-focus stamps in a set and don't let them shine on their own enough?

I stamped the umbrellas in: Poppy Parade, Mango Medley, Granny Apple Green, Pineapple Punch, and Blueberry Bushel.  The background is watercoloured in Pool Party.  Take a look at the video here to see how I did that and put the card together (read on for card layer dimensions):

Here's a look at the cards with more and less umbrellas.  I think I like more better, how about you?

I even remembered to decorate the envelopes!
