My card today features the Sunflower Smiles digital image by Star Stampz. I adore Sunflowers in the Summer and Fall. I used to grow mini sunflowers in whiskey barrell pots, placing them on my front porch. The minis are adorable, I need to grow some this Fall.
I colored the image with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers then trimmed the side with a My Favorite Things Stitched Scallop Basic Edge Die. I created a side panel by inking up a strip of card using Catherine Pooler ink as I didn't have colored card that shade of blue.
I cut a piece of craft foam slightly smaller that the focal panel and mounted all on a Neenah Solar White Classic Crest 110 lb. card base. I find myself using craft foam instead of foam tape of foam pads for dimension. I find it more economical and I can die cut it to match the shape of more intricate die cuts.
The sentiment was sent to me in a card swap and lastly, I added Wink of Stella Clear Sparkle on the Sunflowers and enamel dots for additional interest.
Thanks for stopping by and until next time, Happy Crafting!
