Sunflowers are very popular right now because of the war in Ukraine. Their country flower is the sunflower and it has become a symbol of strength and support throughout the entire world. It also happens to be the favorite flower of a friend of mine who needs some lifting up right now so I decided to use the sunflower for a card for her.
Stampin Up has a beautiful stamp set called Celebrate Sunflowers. There are also Sunflower dies to coordinate with this set. I actually did not use the stamp set at all on this card. I used only the dies. They are so pretty by themselves that I felt I didn’t need the stamps this time.
To make this card I first cut all all the pieces of the sunflower and leaves using Daffodil Delight, Soft Suede, Granny Apple Green and Garden Green cardstock. I love how you can cut out the shape of the flowers and leaves and then cut out the details to put on top. I was going to just leave it like that but decided to add the extra strips of card stock behind the flower. I used Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green and Pacific Point card stock for these. Lastly I stamped the sentiment in Pacific Point Ink. The sentiment is from the stamp set called Waves Of Inspiration. I thought it fit perfectly for this card.
