Sunflower Trio Happy Birthday
I had three little squares leftover from a previous card I made sitting on my desk. I don't like to throw things away if they can be used in another card.
I had the Simon Says Stamp Sunshine Flowers stamp set on my desk from the previous card and it has a small sunflower that fit perfectly in those little squares. I stamped it three times at different angles with Memento Toffee Crunch Ink and colored them with Copic Markers.
I had pulled out Photoplay's Sunflowers Cardstock and thought it was too busy for the background on my previous card, but I thought it could work well with these little squares. I cut it down using an A2 stitched rectangle to be 4-3/4" x 3-1/2". In order to let the sunflower squares standout on the busy patterned paper I cut a strip of green cardstock with the same A2 stitched rectangle die and then ran it through again to make it just wider than the squares. The squares were evenly spaced on the green cardstock. Simon Says Stamp Big Mama Foam Tape was added to the back of the green sunflower panel and adhered to the front of the patterned paper.
I decided to add a little more visual interest by dry embossing the front of an A2 top folding cardbase with the Stampin' Up Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. The patterned paper rectangle was adhered to the cardbase with liquid glue.
I pulled out a previous hot foiled sentiment and adhered it between the lower two flowers with foam tape and the card we done.
