Celebrate Sunflowers Simple Sunflower Celebration
P retty celebration card perfect for lots of occasions using Stampin' Up! products.
Cut cardstock pieces to the following sizes using a Paper Trimmer:
- card from Bumblebee Cardstock at 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and scored at 4-1/4"
- 4" x 5-1/4" from Misty Moonlight Cardstock
- 2" x 2-1/4" from Bumblebee Cardstock
- 1-1/4" x 3" from Very Vanilla Cardstock
Insert the Misty Moonlight rectangle into the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. Use the line printed on the front flap of the folder to make sure it is lined up straight. Place the folder with the cardstock inside on the platform on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine and run through the machine.
Adhere the dry embossed Misty Moonlight rectangle to the front of the Bumblebee card.
Mount the small sunflower with leaves image from the Celebrate Sunflowers Set on Block C. Ink it up with the Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of the Bumblebee 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.
Put the sunflower cut out on some Grid Paper to protect your work surface. You need to make sure that you protect your work surface with paper as the Stampin' Blends Markers do bleed through.
Use the Light and Dark Old Olive Stampin' Blends to color in the leaves.
Use the Dark Soft Suede Stampin' Blends to color in the shaded areas in the center of the sunflower.
Use the Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blends to color over the shaded areas on the petals and the rest of the center of the sunflower.
Cut a 3-1/2" piece of the Very Vanilla 3/8" Scalloped Lace Trim. Use Paper Snips Scissors to round off the right end of the trim piece with the scallops on the bottom.
Lay the piece of ribbon on the card front so the scallops are on the bottom and are about 1" from the bottom of the card. The rounded right end of the trim should be about 5/8" from the right edge.
Put Stampin' Dimensionals on the back of the colored sunflower cut out. Remove the protective backings and adhere the sunflower cut out to the front of the card as shown so the Dimensionals will help hold the left end of the trim piece in place.
Mount the "Let's celebrate you" sentiment from the Celebrate Sunflowers Set on Block H. Ink up the sentiment with the Bumblebee Ink Pad. Stamp the sentiment in the center of the vanilla strip.
Use Paper Snips Scissors to cut out the sentiment as shown. Cut off the word "let's."
Put Mini Stampin' Dimensionals on the back of the sentiment cut out. Remove the protective backings and adhere the sentiment cut out to the front of the card as shown so the left edge overlaps the right edge of the sunflower cut out a small amount and it overlaps the top of the trim piece a bit. The Dimensionals will help to hold the trim piece in place.
Use the mini spatula on the Take Your Pick to carefully peel up a couple of Pale Papaya jewels from the sheet of 2021-2023 In Color Jewels making sure that you get the adhesive backings as well. Adhere them in the upper right corner of the card as shown.
