Today’s post is all about Sunflowers. Sunflowers are one of my all time favorite flowers. How can you not be cheered up by the site of a sunflower. They are big, bright and beautiful. My card today is for the Floral Theme challenge at Global Design Project #GDP243. See more gorgeous florals by clicking on the image below.
I have been having so much fun with the Flowers For Every Season suite. The vintage prints in the papers are just beautiful. And the papers show off the new In Colors beautifully. For this card I wanted a fairly simple design as I am also using this card for a Demo swap and had to make lots! And because my Demo preorder supplies were limited, I came up with 2 designs. I love both equally! And I plan to try more combinations of papers and patterns with this card design. Here is my second look.
This design uses the floral under the pattern. And again, I can’t tell you which one I like better! The card design is simple and the big, bold sunflower die is easy to cut with the pieces separating very easily. I wish the image showed all the texture in the sunflower center the dies create. I did not add any backing to the die cut as I like the light airy feel that allowed the background to show through.
If you love Sunflowers, Celebrate Sunflowers is a must have for you! From summer celebrations to harvest occasions, this set will be a go to for many months to come.
