Celebrating Sunflowers

 Good Morning Dreamers! And welcome visitors. It has been a minute since I blogged, I took a trip to California with my daughter & Grandchildren. They got to see their daddy, who has been deployed. And we adults stayed in a fabulous Air BnB in Fallbrook. I had 4 days of quiet and crafting! I finished 7 cards, binge watched a series on Netflix and explored the nearby down. It was a time of refreshing!  Now on to the hop!



     Today's card is one that I made on my trip, for this Blog Hop! As you can tell, today's blog hop is ALL About Florals.  That is not a hard thing for me to stamp about. I have loved flowers for years!  I chose to feature The Celebrating Sunflowers stamp set. It is one of the bundles that is on the Savings Are In Bloom Sale over in my Stampin' Up Store.   20% off is a great deal! 

    


Cutting Instructions
  Basic Black Cardstock                8 1/2" x5  1/2"
  Basic Gray Cardstock                 2 3/4" x 5 1/2"      1"x 5 1/2"
  Very Vanilla Cardstock               3 1/2" x 3 1/2"     scrap large enough for  sentiment
  Vellum Layering Designs           1 5/8" x 5 1/2"     3/4" x 5 1/2"

  • Cut  card base to 6 3/8" x 5 1/2". Score at 4 1/4". Using cut off piece, cut it again to 1 1/4".
  • Layer Basic Gray on the short flap & the cut piece, centering it.
  • Do the same with the 2 pieces of Vellum.
  • On large Very Vanilla, stamp The largest sunflower with Basic Gray ink. Cut flower with die cut. I fussy cut my flower, because I forgot to take these dies!
  • Glue sunflower onto the center of the upper flap, being careful to not get glue past edge of card.
  • I used washi tape to adhere my my bottom piece in place on the bottom of card. Then I put adhesive on bottom of flower and glued it together.  Remove washi tape.
  • I stamped my sentiment & a cute bumble bee to scrap of very vanilla. I die cut it with a die from the Ornate Frames set. I glued it under the flower, being careful that it is covered when closed!

Thanks for joining me today. Now, Hop on over to the next in line and grab some more inspiration!

Welcome Dreamers!  I need to apologize for my being gone. I have had several deaths in the last three weeks, and my emotions and attention ...
