Quick and Easy Handmade Card Featuring Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set

Hello, my crafty friends. Hope all is well. For the next couple of weeks, I will be showcasing quick and easy handmade cards featuring the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set.  Our virtual workshop on Saturday (August 15) will be all about this stamp set and making quick and easy, or simple stamping cards. I highly recommend ordering your own stamp set, or bundle with dies, so that you are able to follow along. Today's card is a bold and sassy thank you card using 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 Mango Melody cardstock. The mat layer is from the new 2020-22 In Color collection, Magenta Madness and is cut 4" x 5 1/2". 

The large sunflower is stamped on the upper half of the Whisper White cardstock, cut 3 3/4" x 5", in Mango Melody. To create the darker center, I removed the Mango Melody ink using a sponge dauber, and used a second sponge dauber to add Soft Suede ink to the center. Then I used the masking technique to lay down the leaves in second generation Shaded Spruce (still a little bright, but this is a bold and sassy card).

For the sentiment, I added a background strip of DSP, cut 3 3/4" x 1 1/2", and stamped in Magenta Madness on a 1/2" strip of Whisper White.

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.
