I saw two sunflower challenges this week and I remembered the Flower Challenge wanted a shape to celebrate their 5th Birthday. So This is the card that resulted from those bits of inspiration. Along with that challenge, the card will be visiting Double D, The Card Concept, and NBUS.
I broke out my new but never used Stampin Up Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set and die set. I used only the sentiment from the stamp set, and used the dies for the remainder of the card.
I cut the solid sunflower from a So Saffron card base leaving just a bit of the die off the folded edge. I then cut the outline and center portions from a lighter yellow cardstock. I used brown ink to darken the centers. A white circle was cut to fit inside the sunflower, as that is the shape portion for this card and that's where a little note can be written. I cut the two leaves from Jade cardstock and then used a copic marker to darken the vein and outline portion of the leaves. I had a left over part of a card base left over after cutting the flower outline, that became the background to my card along with a piece of gingham paper. The sentiment was stamped on the left over So Saffron.
The only place this card opens is the sunflower, that is the shape for The Flower Challenge and I am calling this clean and layered for The Card Concept.
Thanks much for visiting.
