I can't seem to stop using the Celebrate Sunflowers bundle. You might wonder how many sunflower cards you can make, but it's not just sunflowers. I'll link to some of my other sunflower posts a little later. First here is my card for today.
This card has a base of Thick Whisper White measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, score, and fold at 4 1/4. Run the front of the card through your die cutting machine with the new Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder.
Using the Stitched Nested labels, cut a label from the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper and glue toward the left of the card.
Stamp the large sunflower on Whisper White in Gray Granite ink. Color the center of the flower with a Dark Mango Melody Blend. Highlight parts of the flower with a Light Gray Granite Blend. Cut out using the Sunflowers dies. This die might be a little hard to place easily. I've found that if I look for the petals that lean to the right, I can match that. It's right at the area that has the petals leaning near the center of the flower. I actually added a little dot with my Sharpie there on the die. Add to the card on dimensionals.
Stamp 3 leaves in Gray Granite and color with a Light Old Olive Blend. Cut with the dies. Cut 2 of the detailed leaves from Old Olive card stock. Add the leaves just under the sunflower with glue dots.
The saying is from the Lovely You stamp set. Stamp in Old Olive on white and fussy cut. The ribbon is from the Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack. Fussy cut with snips. To attach, run a line of Stampin' Seal about 1 1/2 inches long. Zigzag the ribbon over the seal. Add the saying with dimensionals.
Complete the front on the card by adding some of the 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots. Let me say here that there has been an issue with these dots coming apart. I made this card as a swap and although the dots were intact when sent, they had come apart in shipping. I did fine that you can add a tiny dot of glue and glue the dome back on. Stampin' Up! is aware and are working on this. If you have defective dots, call Stampin' Up! or contact your demonstrator.
For the inside add a sentiment from the Lovely You stamp set in Old Olive ink. Stamp the small sunflower on white scrap and color with the Dark Mango Melody blend and the Light Old Olive Blend. Cut out with the Sunflower dies and add to the inside of the card. I did this as a cut out because the blends would bleed to the back of the card.
Here is a video showing how to make this project. I hope it helps!
