I am so honored to be hopping today with some of my favorite Stampin’Up! demonstrators to bring awareness to Autism, along with raising funds for Autism Speaks–enhancing lives today and accelerating a spectrum of solutions for tomorrow.

A little fact about Autism: if one identical twin is diagnosed with Autism the other twin has about a 90% chance to develop an autistic disorder.
In keeping with the colors of Autism I created this sweet card with Daffodil Delight and Bermuda Bay
Stampin'Up! Over the Rainbow stamp set, autism blog hop, You are my sunshine, #lisapretto #inkbigacademystamps
  • The color combo is Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight and Whisper White
  •  The Daffodil Delight card base measures 5 1/2 x 8 1/2. I cut off 2 1/2″ from the front panel. I trimmed that cut off portion down to 3 3/4 x 2 1/2″ and ran it thru the Big Shot with the Happy Hearts embossing folder. A fun little change up to make the card fun and engaging!
  • The inside of the card is layered: Bermuda Bay measures 5 1/4 x 4″ and the Whisper White layer measures 5 x 3 3/4″.
  • I stamped the heart from the Stampin’Up! Over the Rainbow stamp set, found in the Annual Catalog, on the top 3/4 of the Whisper White panel in Daffodil Delight
  • The main focal point is also from the Over the Rainbow stamp set. The sun is stamped in Daffodil Delight and the greeting is stamped in Bermuda Bay. I cropped it out using the Layering Squares Framelits. The sweet scalloped Bermuda Bay piece is also created with the Layering Squares Framelits.
  • A wrap of Crushed Curry Bakers Twine and a swag of Bermuda Bay Sequin Trim lets the recipient of this card know they truly are special and dear

I would be thrilled to have you make a donation to Autism Speaks today. You will be directed to my friend Amy Koender’s fundraising page.  After you do that please email me that you donated and I will pop a sweet little thank you gift in the mail to you! If all of you were to donate just $5 we would make it a HUGE DAY…..and wouldn’t that be fun to be a part of?!
