Welcome to Card Creating Tuesday over at My Cricut Craftroom! Today we were asked to create a card featuring a sunflower. I just happen to love sunflowers.... they are one of my favorite flowers, so I did not hesitate to sign up for this assignment!
I used the Art Nouveau cartridge and cut the sunflower, shadow and the layers on page 36 of the handbook. I decided to cut the flower at 4 3/4 inches high. I also cut one EXTRA round flower layer so I could off set the petals and curl the edges up after I shaded them with chalk.
I hand embossed the leaves to give the look of veining to them and then used the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder to emboss the center of the sunflower and give it the look of "seeds".
To layer the flower and the saying, I cut a "top note" background from Elegant Edges and embossed that using a Sizzix folder called "Swirls and Waves".
I stamped the saying, which in case you can not read it says, "Just a little note to keep in touch because I think of you so much". I have had this stamp for ages, so I don't even know the manufacturer of the stamp.
I used pop dots to give dimension to the card and also inked edges. I am very happy with how this project turned out! What do you think? What is YOUR favorite flower?
