Last week it was my sister Kate's birthday and this is the card that I made for her. These stamps are from a free set that came with the creative Stamper magazine a few months ago. Kate loves sunflowers so as soon as I saw this I knew I would be using it for her birthday card. As usual I started by stamping the main sunflower onto a small piece of white card with Memento Rich Cocoa ink. I coloured it with Coloursoft pencils and Sansodor for blending and then trimmed it to size and used a small corner punch to round the corners. I shaded the edges lightly with tea dye Distress ink using a blending tool. I used some bronze Frantage for the centre of the flower and then mounted it onto brown glitter card and then onto yellow card. I made a 6" x 6" square base card using SU Kraft cardstock, and stamped and coloured the small sunflower randomly over the front. I added some brown gingham ribbon and tied a bow before adding the sunflower panel. I thought it looked a bit bleak so I stamped the single leaf from the small flower twice into each corner and coloured them and I think that gave it a little lift. The birthday greeting is a LOTV stamp and I coloured and mounted it to match the rest of the card.
The brown glitter card and the yellow and white card were all from the snippets box so I am taking this over to Pixies Snippets Playground as I 've not played for a couple of weeks.
I am also entering at Through The Craft Room Door - Anything Goes.
