Pick out the large, detailed sunflower die from the Sunflowers Dies. Put it on top of the horizontal small pink and orange flowers on white background piece of Dandy Designs Designer Paper on a platform on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine so the die is centered on the rectangle on the left side of the designer paper. Run through the machine. Use the Take Your Pick Die Brush Tip and Take Your Pick to remove the pieces. Leave the die out.
Note: You are using the designer paper rectangle with the flower shaped hole cut out of it for this project. Keep the thin, detailed sunflower cut out of designer paper for use on another project.
Adhere the designer paper with the flower shaped hole cut out of it over the top of the orange blocks Dandy Designs Designer Paper so the orange blocks show through the hole.
Adhere the matted designer paper rectangle to the center of the large Calypso Coral rectangle and then to the front of the Mango Melody card.
Peel the protective backing off of the large Adhesive Sheets square. Adhere the Adhesive Sheets square to one side of the Calypso Coral square. Be sure to leave the other protective backing in place for now.
Put the large, detailed sunflower die on top of the Calypso Coral square on a platform on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine so the Calypso Coral (orange pink) side is facing up. Run through the machine. Use the Take Your Pick Die Brush Tip and Take Your Pick to remove the pieces. Make sure the protective backing for the Adhesive Sheet stays in place for now. Keep the large, detailed sunflower cut out and the central, solid rough circle.
Before removing the protective backing from the detailed Calypso Coral sunflower cut out, figure out which way it and the sunflower hole cut into the designer paper on the front of the card need to be oriented for them to line up.
Carefully remove the protective backing from the back of the detailed Calypso Coral sunflower cut out and adhere it to the front of the card so it is centered inside the sunflower shaped hole cut into the designer paper.
Carefully remove the protective backing from the back of the central, solid, rounded cut out and adhere it to the center of the sunflower cut out.
Mount the "Let's celebrate you" sentiment from the Celebrate Sunflowers Set on Block H. Ink it up with the Calypso Coral Ink Pad so you get the words "celebrate you" inked up. Stamp the words on the Basic White strip.
Use Paper Snips Scissors to cut out the words "celebrate you" by hand, following the curves of the letters and leaving a bit of white around each letter.
Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue or Fine-Tip Glue Pen to adhere the cut out words to the front of the card in the lower right corner so they overlap the bottom right side of the sunflower a bit as shown.
Cut a 3-1/2" piece of the White 1/4" Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon.
Lay the ribbon on some Grid Paper to protect your work surface. Use the brush tip of the Dark Pale Papaya Stampin' Blends to color the ribbon. Allow to dry for a minute.
Tie a half knot in the center of the colored ribbon. Trim the ends.
Use a Mini Glue Dot to adhere the ribbon knot to the front of the card at a slight angle so it overlaps the end of the word "you" as shown.
Use the mini spatula on the Take Your Pick to carefully peel up 1 brass or champagne flower from a sheet of Flower Trinkets making sure that you get the adhesive backing as well. Adhere it to the front of the card in the center of the sunflower as shown.
