Advice from a sunflower

Happy Saturday, friends! Hope you’re having a great weekend! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! I’m excited to be back on the Eyelet Outlet blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! I created a pretty CAS ‘thinking of you’ card featuring several awesome products – but the main attraction on this card is the sunflowers! I love all kinds of flowers but I would have to say that the sunflower is my favorite!

I rounded one bottom corner of my Neenah Classic Crest Baronial Ivory cardstock card base to add a little interest. I adhered a small piece of patterned paper to the bottom of the front panel, added a strip of Wood Washi Tape and layered the panel on dark brown cardstock. I added a die cut stem and several Sunflower Brads, and adhered the layered panel to the card base. I die cut a digital sentiment and popped it up on foam pieces for a little dimension. The final touch was the addition of several small Ivory Enamel Dots.

I printed a small sunflower from the digital set on Neenah Classic Crest Baronial Ivory cardstock for the inside and trimmed the panel with the sunflower in the lower right corner. I colored the small sunflower with alcohol markers and embellished the panel with strips of the patterned paper and dark brown cardstock, and stamped the sentiment in brown ink.

One last look… so loving how this turned out!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
