Sunflower Trio Birthday
Hi again! I'm sharing this warm sunflower card that I created for the latest challenge on the Classy Cards 'n Such blog. Have you played in this challenge yet? This is probably the easiest challenge ever! Simply use an outline sticker and share it with us for a chance to win a gift certificate to go shopping!
Outline stickers are quick and easy items to embellish your cards and projects. Simply peel the sticker, affix it to your cardstock, color it in if desired, and ta da! Done!
For my card, I peeled three of the Sunflowers (Gold) stickers and affixed them to white cardstock. I colored them with Distress Ink Markers and set them aside while I created my card base. (You can also buy the markers individually. The marker colors I used are - Wild Honey, Rusty Hinge, Peeled Paint, Forest Moss, and Vintage Photo.) I created a warm honey and rust colored background by using the Water Color Distress technique from Technique Junkies and adhered that to my dark brown card base. A strip of dark brown cardstock was adhered to the middle of my card and I stamped the birthday sentiment (from the Birthday stamp set) at the bottom of the honey paper with dark brown ink. I cut out each of the three colored sunflower stickers with an oval die and adhered each one to the dark brown cardstock strip.
This card will be perfect for sending to someone in the mail. It's nice and flat so it only needs one first class stamp, and the sunflowers will make the birthday girl smile when she sees this card.
