I used the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set and coordinating Sunflower Dies from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog for this card. Feeling ready for sunshine and sunflowers! Enjoy!
The Paper Cuts
- Thick Basic White Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ scored at 5 1/2″ (card base)
- Basic White Cardstock: 3 1/2″ x 4 3/4″ (front panel) and 2 1/2″ x 2″ (sunflower)
- Bumblebee Cardstock: 3 3/4″ x 5″ (front panel) and 4″ x 1/2″ (inside strip)
- Soft Suede Cardstock: 4″ x 5 1/4″ (front panel)
- I “loaded” Bumblebee Ink on the lid the ink pad, squeezed water into the barrel of my medium Water Painter and picked up the thinned ink. I tapped it against my finger over the Basic White panel to create the splatter.
- With Soft Suede Ink, I stamped the sunflower image on the Basic White cardstock and the corner of the envelope. I colored the images with Stampin’ Blends: Light & Dark Daffodil Delight (front petals), Light & Dark Mango Melody (back petals) and Light & Dark Old Olive (leaves). I die cut the colored sunflower for the card front. Now that the panel was dry I stamped the sentiment as a background randomly on the card front and added the sentiment on the inside.
- With Bumblebee Ink I stamped the sunflower on the inside of the card (over the sentiment) and on the bumblebee strip for texture.
- I adhered the stamped background panel to the Bumblebee panel to the Soft Suede panel with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I also adhered the stamped strip to the inside edge.
- I added a strip of Stampin’ Seal to the lower left of the card. I wound Linen Thread around 3 fingers several times and then applied to the glue and spread it out a little. I topped it with the sunflower with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I embellished with Bumblebee 2020-2021 In Color Enamel Dots.
- The decorated panel is popped onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
