Sunflower Prayers- A Calypso Coral Monochromatic Card



Hi Again Stampers! 

I wanted to create a card using the CMCC40 Monochromatic ColorChallenge along with the FMS156 Sketch Challenge and the Fusion 09/25Inspiration Photo.

I had a few sunflower images filed away from My Digital Studio (MDS) and decided to incorporate one of the images into this card. 

I hope you will have time to check out the challenge sites- so much inspiration!!

To create this card:

Open a blank document in My Digital Studio (MDS), position the sunflower image and print out onto Whisper White cardstock.  

Color the petals using the Calypso Coral Slate Stampin’ Blendabilities™ Collection, the center of the Sunflower with the Light Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blendabilities™ marker and carefully “fussy-cut” the sunflower image separating a few of the petals.

Layer a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock onto the Early Espresso card base. 

Using retired DSP, create the horizontal layers for the card and adhere to the card front.   Add the sentiment and Pearls.

Mount the Sunflower image onto the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals® to finish off the card. 

Stamp Sets:  Sunflower, Petite Pairs

Ink: Printer Ink- Black, Early Espresso, Stampin’ Blendabilities™- Calypso Coral Collection, Light Crumb Cake

Paper: Whisper White, Very Vanilla, retired Etcetera Designer Series Paper

Accessories: Pearls, 1 ¼” Circle Punch


Thanks again for stopping by- I hope you have a marvelous Monday!!
