Polka-dot Sunflower

Today I've made a card for two challenges - CAS-ual Fridays (CFC51 - Happy Birthday) and Clean & Simple Sketch (FTL 189).  I used the Melonheadz free digital stamp of a sunflower, printed onto Daffodil Delight polka-dot DP and cut out the flower head.  Added a button and some twine and voila ... a quick and easy card.  Hope you like.

"Polka-dot Sunflower"


Stamps:  Sunflower (Melonheadz Digital Stamp); Happy Moments - sentiment (SU!)
Paper:  Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Daffodil Delight polka-dot DP (SU!)
Ink:  Basic Black (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  Button (SU!), Lemon drop twine (The Twinery), corner rounder, glue dot, adhesives, and dimensionals



I printed off the digital image onto polka DP and cut out the flower head.  I threaded twine through the button holes, tied a knot and secured the button to the middle of the sunflower with two glue dots.

I cut out a 2 1/4" square piece of Whisper White cardstock.  I cut a 7/8" strip of Daffodil Delight polka-dot DP and adhered it to the one side.  I used the corner rounder to round all the corners ... as well as the four corners of the Crumb Cake card base.

I stamped the sentiment in Basic Black ink onto the square panel.  I wrapped two strands of twine around the panel and tied a bow, securing the bow in place with a glue dot.

I mounted the square panel onto the card base, popping it up with dimensionals to add depth.  I added the flower on top, also popping it up with dimensionals to add depth.
