SUO73 Patriotic Sunflower
The Stampin’ Up! Only Challenges theme for the SUO73 Challenge is Patriotic Projects and I decided to create my own flag using the Sunflower Background stamp. I hope you can take the time to check out all of the details and the other Design Team creations and play along with us!
To create this card:
Use the Big Shot™ with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Whisper White and Midnight Muse cardstock for the background layers. Using a Sponge Dauber, apply Sahara Sand Classic Ink onto the Whisper White embossed layer.
Add the layers to a piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock and adhere to the Whisper White card base. Add a strip of Cherry Cobbler cardstock over the rough edges of the embossed panels.
Using Stampin’ Write Markers color the flag image directly onto the Sunflower Background Stamp – Midnight Muse, Cherry Cobbler and Sahara Sand. Stamp the image onto Whisper White cardstock and carefully cut out the Sunflower image.
Stamp the sentiment using Midnight Muse Classic Ink onto Whisper White cardstock, sponge a bit of Sahara Sand Classic ink onto the edges and punch out with the 1 ¾” Circle Punch. Layer onto Cherry Cobbler cardstock (create the layer by punching another circle with the 1 ¾” Circle Punch, cut in half and layer so the edges peek out from the original circle).
Adhere the sentiment layer to the center of the Sunflower image, adhere to the card front and add the 3/8” Midnight Muse Satin Ribbon bow along with the Pearls to finish off the card.
