Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is another fun card featuring the Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle from the upcoming 2020-2021 Annual Catalog! When I first saw this stamp set, I just knew it was a must for my “wish list”! I just love the stamp set and coordinating dies (this is actually a part of a suite collection), but sunflowers make me think of my mother and the sunflower that she grows every year in her garden! Since I’m waiting for the coordinating DSP to arrive (I ordered the 6” x 6” DSP after my initial pre-order), I thought I would use the fun In Good Taste for today’s card and distress the DSP with embossing and ink!
For the base layer, use this design from the In Good Taste DSP, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, emboss with the Old World Paper 3D Folder, and use a Stampin’ Sponge with Early Espresso ink along the edges of the DSP:
For the rest of the card front, you will need:
1. Stamp the small sunflower in Early Espresso ink on Very Vanilla cardstock, color in the leaves with Dark Old Olive Stampin’ Blends, the sunflower center with the Light Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends, and the sunflower leaves with the Light and Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends. Cut out with the coordinating die.
2. Out of Gold Foil Sheets, cut one of the double leaf die and two of the single leaf die.
3. Enough of the Early Espresso Faux Suede Trim to tie into a knot around the DSP. TIP-since the DSP is thinner than cardstock and is embossed, I cut two pieces of the trim to tie one of the ends into a knot and then adhere the other ends around to the back of the DSP.
Adhere the faux suede trim knot around the middle of the DSP and use adhesive to adhere the Gold Foil leaves to the DSP:
I use adhesive to adhere the top and right sunflowers to the DSP and dimensionals for the bottom sunflower. This completed piece is adhered to an Early Espresso cardstock card base, cut at 5 ½” 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”:
For the inside, cut a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, stamp the sentiment and sunflowers in Early Espresso ink and color in the sunflower with Stampin’ Blends, same as the card front:
So, what do you think of this new bundle and Designer Series Paper?? This stamp set and coordinating dies are just beautiful and I love this DSP! If you are wondering about this new faux suede trim, I highly recommend it because it is easy to use (such as tying a bow or knot) and is super soft!
