Hello everyone! Happy Wednesday. I hope your having a great week. Can you believe we are almost finished with April? It blows my mind how time flies. I am happy to be half way through the week though and I am really enjoying thedailymarker30day challenge. Today for day 7 I used a Sunflower for my Birthday card today. I love sunflowers they are one of my favorite flowers and my husband recently got me a bouquet of flowers and it had a great big sunflower in it for our Anniversary.
I printed this sunflower Digi from the Farmers Market Digi Stamp set from the Not2Shabby Shop onto Georgia Pacific 110 cardstock. I colored it in with my Copic Markers and Prismacolor Colored Pencils. I then cut it out with a circle die from Waffle Flower Crafts. I layered it with another circle using kraft cardstock and adding foam tape to the back. I then used a Corner 3D Floral embossing folder from Memorybox. I cut out some white cardstock using a stitched rectangle and then I inked some Mustard Seed Distress Oxide ink in the embossing folder and placed my cardstock inside the folder to run through my Spellbinders Platinum cutting machine. I saw Jennifer McGuire’s Video where she did this technique. Although I’m not sure it looks as great, her cards always look AMAZING. It is kind of a cool look though. I used a sanding block like Jennifer does and sanded it on my panel slightly
I then cut out my sentiment from Sprinkled With Love Digi Stamp Set using my paper trimmer and then I layered it with kraft cardstock. I always have birthdays coming up and who doesn’t like sunflowers right? I glued my embossed panel to a A2 card base and added my circle image with liquid glue and my sentiment with foam tape. I then added some sequins to match. I hope you have enjoyed my card. I will be back with another project. Happy Crafting!
