Mount the "Let's celebrate you" sentiment from the Celebrate Sunflowers Set on Block H. Carefully press the stamp to the edge of the open Cajun Craze Ink Pad so you ink up ONLY the words "celebrate you." Stamp the words on the bottom right corner of the vertical Harvest Meadow Designer Paper rectangle.
Tip: If you prefer, you can cut the word "let's" off from the rest of the sentiment stamp using a sharp pair of scissors to make it easier to stamp using only the words "celebrate you."
Adhere the stamped designer paper rectangle to the center of the large Cajun Craze rectangle and then to the front of the Crushed Curry card.
Pick out the long, skinny label with bulges in the middle die from the Tasteful Labels Dies. Put it on top of the Cork Specialty Paper rectangle on a platform on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine. Run through the machine.
Adhere the cork paper label cut out to the front of the card so it is centered side to side and is about 1-1/8" from the top edge.
Peel the protective backing off of the Adhesive Sheet rectangle. Adhere it to one side of the small Cajun Craze rectangle. Be sure to leave the other protective backing in place for now.
Pick out the long, skinny, set of three grass stems die from the Harvest Dies. Put it on top of the Cajun Craze rectangle with Adhesive Sheet on back on a platform on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine so the orange side is face up. Run through the machine. Use the Take Your Pick Die Brush Tip and paper-piercing tool on the Take Your Pick to remove the pieces.
If necessary, cut the grass cut out apart so you have two stems on one piece and a single stem on the other.
Carefully remove the protective backing from the single grass cut out. Adhere it at a slight angle to the left side of the cork label cut out so the bottom of the stem is near the center and the top of the stem pokes out to the upper left side as shown..
Carefully remove the protective backing from the double stems grass cut out. Adhere it at a slight angle to the right side of the cork label cut out so the bottom of the stems is near the center and the top of the stems poke out to the upper right side as shown..
Cut a 4" piece of the 3/8" Diamond Weave Ribbon so it has a sharp angle on each end.
Put a strip of Tear & Tape Adhesive horizontally across the center of the cork label cut out. Remove the protective backing and adhere the piece of ribbon to the adhesive.
Mount the small sunflower with leaves image from the Celebrate Sunflowers Set on Block C. Ink it up with the Cajun Craze Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of the small Crushed Curry rectangle.
Pick out the matching, small, open sunflower with leaves die from the Sunflowers Dies. Put it on top of the stamped sunflower on a platform on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine so the sunflower is centered in the die. Run through the machine.
Use Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere the small sunflower cut out to the center of the cork paper label cut out.
Use the mini spatula on the Take Your Pick to carefully peel up a medium gem from a sheet of Gilded Gems making sure that you get the adhesive backing as well. Adhere it to the center of the sunflower.
