Large Sunflower Thank You Card

mft sunflower thank you

Here is the first of the sunflower thank you cards (a project for one of my cousins).

I was not thrilled that I could not get the solid flower center dot of the sunflower to totally cover the area inside of the petals. So, I colored the center with a Copic marker, and then stamped the center detail stamp on top of that.

Supplies: Stamps – Avery Elle, My Favorite Things, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Close to Cocoa (retired), inks – Copic E53, Stampin’ Up! Close to Cocoa (retired), Daffodil Delight, VersaFine Smokey Gray, embossing powder – Ranger Liquid Platinum.

Essentials by Ellen June 2015 Pinsights Challenge

e by e june 2015 pinsights

This is my entry for the June 2015 Essentials by Ellen Pinsights Challenge.

Here is the original mood board:

I was inspired by the colors coral, pale yellow and turquoise. And by the tidy dot patterns.

I marked off my cardstock in a 3 x 3 grid (ha ha – a Brady Bunch grid!). I embossed the sentiment in gold, then masked off individual grid sections to stamp the flowers. Used a corner rounder, added a turquoise layer (when in doubt, make it TURQUOISE!), and finally added elastic gold cord.

Thanks for stopping by!
