Celebrate Sunflowers

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.
