I made this card for my mum who recently celebrated her birthday. She loves sunflowers so when I saw the Simple Sunflower set by PTI I had to get it for her card. I have first made a card base using PTI Summer Sunrise CS and then added a panel of PTI Stampers Select white CS which has been run through my Cuttlebug using the PTI Guidelines Grid Embossing Plate; I have punched two holes at the bottom and wrapped around Doodlebug Tangerine Doodle Twine around and tied in a bow. The Elzybells sentiment has been stamped above. I have cut the two sunflowers and leaves from white CS using the PTI Simple Sunflowers Die Set and then stamped the sunflowers with Memento Dandelion & Tangelo inks for the petals and Rich Cocoa for the centres. The centres have also been glittered using my Spica clear pen. The leaves have then been stamped with New Sprout Ink. They have all been added to the card with 3D adhesive squares.

STAMPS: Papertrey Ink, Elzybells {retired}. INK: Memento Tuexdo Black, Rich Cocoa, Dandelion, Tangelo & New Sprout. CS: Papertrey Ink. TOOLS: Papertrey Ink Embossing Plate, Papertrey Ink Dies. EMBELLISHMENTS: Copic Spica Pen, Doodlebug Designs Doodle Twine.
