Hello friends and crafty readers! One of my absolute favorite new images from the Summerlicious release at Joy Clair Designs is the beautiful sunflower from the You Fill My Day digital stamp set. Flowers remain one of my favorite images to create cards with and I love this geometric sunflower. Recently I created this rainbow themed card with the same exact digital stamp. Rainbows always make me happy! Today I am sharing another (similar) way to use this supersized sunflower with a fall color palette.
The base of this A2 sized card is made from 80 lb. Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. I cut a 5 1/4" x 4" piece of white cardstock and ran in through my Big Shot using a stitched leaf pattern background die plate. I adhered this as my first background layer. I printed out the giant sunflower at about 50% size and then colored it using Copic markers in a variety of yellow, gold and orange hues. I fussy cut the sunflower and adhered it to the right side of the card, actually chopping about 1/3 of the right side off the edge. I used Scotch 3M foam adhesive to adhere the sunflower to give it added dimension. I printed the sentiment "you fill my day with happiness" on a thin strip of white cardstock and adhered it over the sunflower. I added a couple clear rhinestones for added texture. Lastly, I added a coat of clear Wink of Stella to the sunflower for added sparkle. *My general rule of thumb is ALWAYS add sparkle!
I hope you have enjoyed this card. Thanks for visiting and have a wonderfully creative day! For more inspiration, you can follow me on my website, Instagram, Facebook and on my YouTube channel.
