For this card I once again made a square card measuring 5 1/4" x 10 1/2", scored at 5 1/4". I used Daffodil Delight for this. I added a layer of Pumpkin Pie card stock cut at 4 3/4" x 4 3/4". I ran this through my big shot using a texture plate of large dots. I brushed the edges with Pumpkin Pie ink and attached it to the base with runner adhesive. I added white glitter balls to the corners and some Dazzling Details glitter glue to the layer. Then it was time to add my sunflowers.
As I said, I found a pack of 4 sunflowers at my local craft store. I thought they were so pretty I wanted to use them for my daughters card. I attached the flowers using a liquid glue and allowed them plenty of time to dry. I wanted to add a little sparkle to the centers so I used a brown glitter glue and added dots. While this was drying I went to work on the inside panel.
I started the inside panel for this with a piece of Whisper White cut at 4 3/4" x 4 3/4". I pulled out a retired stamp set called Touch of Nature. This set contained the sunflower stamp and I stamped 3 across the bottom of the panel using Chocolate Chip ink. Using my colored pencils, I colored the stems and flowers in and added some grass. I used a total of 3 colors to color the petals of the flowers. I wanted to be sure they resembled the flowers on the front. Next I used Daffodil Delight ink and my Curly Cute stamp set and stamped the Happy Birthday across the top. For the main saying, I turned to another retired stamp set called Occasional Quotes and stamped the greeting using Pumpkin Pie ink. I then added daffodil and pumpkin cupcakes using a stamp from the Itty Bitty Bits stamp set.
While I did not take a photo of the envelope, I chalked the front of it blue for a sky and added the same sunflower stamp and grass across the bottom. I cut letters out for her name and placed them in the sky. It went nicely with the card and she really seemed to love it.
Well, I am off to my laundry today with a little creating in between. I will return tomorrow with another share for you. Until then, thanks for stopping by today. See you later and keep stamping!!!
