I have had a sunflower die in my stash for several years and every Fall I have wanted to use it but never have, so today I finally used it!
I used a Spellbinders die called Create a Sunflower. It's really easy to do, there's just a lot of die cutting of petals and then gluing them all together. I used Gina K Designs cardstock for the entire card except for the patterned paper. I used Sweet Corn for the petals, Grass Green for the leaves, Tomato Soup (one of my fav colors) for a layer, and charcoal brown for the center of the flower. I was going between black, chocolate brown and the charcoal brown and I think the charcoal brown matched the plaid stripe well so that made my decision.
The plaid patterned paper is by Lawn Fawn called Perfectly Plaid Fall. I have been wanting to use these Lawn Fawn plaid papers for awhile too. The bottom layer of the card is sweet corn by Gina K. I cut the plaid paper out with a My Favorite Things die called Bold Stripes Cover Up. I love how this turned out!
For the sentiment I used Simon Says Stamp You Matter stamp set. I embossed with Brutus Monroe Alabaster Embossing Powder and stamped on the Gina K charcoal brown. This is the first time I've cut up my sentiment like this. I see it done a lot so I thought I'd try it and I like how it turned out. Last, I used some clear sequins from The Ton Stamps.
I love making Fall cards and I hope I inspired you to make some. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
