Quick and Easy Handmade Card Featuring Celebrate Sunflowers v. 2.0

Hello, my crafty friends. Hope all is well. As you may recall, I am showcasing quick and easy handmade cards featuring the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set this month. Our virtual workshop this Saturday (August 15) will be all about this stamp set and making quick and easy or simple stamping cards. Hope you remembered to order your own own stamp set, or bundle with dies, so that you are able to follow along. Today's card uses two (2) new in colors and a striped-pattern strip from the Flowers for Every Season 6"x6" DSP pack.

The card base is a side fold A2 (cut 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored at 4 1/4") in Crumb Cake cardstock. The mat layer is from the new 2020-22 In Color collection, Cinnamon Cider, and cut 4" x 5 1/2". 

I felt like some coloring using the Blender Pens (AC p. 147) so the large sunflower is stamped off center, upper right-hand side of the Whisper White cardstock, cut 3 3/4" x 5", using the Memento Tuxedo Black ink. The flower petals are shades of Bumblebee. Although I liked coloring the flower center in different shades of Cinnamon Cider and Crumb Cake ink, I decided to use the dies to create some dimension. The inside circle of the flower is Crumb Cake and the outside circle is Cinnamon Cider.

For balance, I added a strip of DSP, cut 3 3/4" x 3/4" along the left hand side. I just love the stripes in this DSP collect.  The sentiment is from the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set and inked in coordinating Cinnamon Cider. Super cute!

Do not forget:  When you place your orders this month in the new online store (same location, but redesigned for a pleasant customer experience), remember to apply the Host Code (see below for the current code) AND your Bonus Day coupon codes.  If you need more info, check out my biz news following today's project notes for all the details.
