Font of You Umbrella

I hope the subscriber box works now.

I love SU's new set Font of You. It's different from SU's usual stuff and very appealing to the English major in me. Wouldn't it be wonderful to see SU come up with more crisp, unique designs like this one?

And of course now that PTI has an umbrella set (SO CUTE), I need that one, too. Sigh

This card is pretty straightforward. I stamped the sentiment on a scrap of white cardstock and trimmed it to a 3/8-inch strip. I then used SU's Word Window punch upside down, pushing one edge of the strip into the opening from the bottom so only one rounded side was punched at a time. This allows you to make the window bigger to accommodate sentiments that are too wide for the punch.

The center panel of the umbrella, cut from an image stamped on a scrap, is popped up with dimensionals. It would be loads of fun to make the center panel a different color, but I was in an orange mood when I made this and aiming for monochromatic.

Hope you like it!
