BSS MONDAY IDEA - Fall Sunflower

Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea.

Today's card is a Sunflower die cut card.

Close up of the Sunflower die

What I used

Die cut - Poppy Stamps - Bountiful Sunflower 1006
Spellbinders Large Mega Rectangles Nestabilities S5-015
Paper - Graphic 45 6x6 pad Patterns & Solids
Sentiment - Hero Arts set - LP217
Corner Punch - Paper Shapers
Yellow Rhinestones
Green die ink - Marvey Jungle Green #95, Ranger Distress inks,
Wild Honey, Walnut Stain, and Vintage Photo
Brown Dotted Ribbon and bow.

How I did it

Started wih a white card stock 5x7 inch base
Papers were cut at 43/4x31/2 inches
Center papers on card base (they will overlap slightly)
and adhere
Cut a piece of paper 11/4 inch by 43/4 inch and
center over the two patterns and adhere
While the die cut is still in the die, sponge the green ink
around the edge on the front side
I cut the sunflower out of pale yellow cardstock.
I cut the stem out in a medium green carstock.
Glue the stem portion over the yellow whole sunflower.
Using the distress inks, sponge wild honey on the sunflower leaves,
doing a couple in the green ink
sponge the lower portion of the middle of the sunflowr with
the walnut stain and the outer edge with the Vintage Photo.
Attach the finished sunflower to the rectangle die cut with
small dots of liquid glue. (I used Tombow)
Stamp and cut out sentiment and adhere.
Punch corners and adhere.
Add ribbon and bow and rhinestones

Thanks for stopping in today. Have a great day.  Until later................
