A couple of weeks ago Rob and I went to Old McDonald’s Farm with my son and his family. Old McDonald’s Farm is a local farm that added a terrific attraction for families to go to. There are goats, cows, a camel, chickens (all the farm animals you can think of), tractor rides, bounce house, pony rides, etc. It is such fun to go there with my grandchildren. One of the things they have is a giant sunflower garden. I think they might do a maze through it later in the season but when we went the sunflowers were gigantic and beautiful. This made me want to get out my stamp set called Celebrate Sunflowers. This stamp set coordinates with the Sunflower Dies.
This was a pretty simple card to make. I first stamped the flower in Daffodil Delight ink and then colored it with my Daffodil Delight and Soft Suede Blends. Then I stamped the leaves in Old Olive ink and colored them with an Old Olive Blends. I cut both of these images out using the coordinating dies. I adhered a Paper Lattice piece using Multipurpose Glue. These are in the 2021 July – December Mini Catalog. I love these because they add so much to a card. You can color them with your blends too (although in this case, I did not do that). Lastly I stamped the sentiment in Memento Black Ink.
Here is a photo of my son David, his wife Brittany and sweet Olivia in front of the sunflower garden. David is 6’2″ so those sunflowers are huge!
Susan, this is such a lovely card. Yep, sunflowers are the best, esp because they grow so tall reaching for the sun. Love the picture of your family!
Susan I really like this card. Great family picture too.
What a fun card! The lattice is the perfect backdrop for the sunflower. And that’s such a sweet family picture. Those ARE huge sunflowers!
