Celebrate Sunflowers Sympathy Card

I was asked to make a card for a co-worker who lost her beloved pet yesterday. I wanted To make something soft and elegant, so my mind immediately went to the monochromatic sunflower card I made a few weeks ago. Essentially, I changed the primary color, placement of the images, and the sentiments. This card whipped up a lot faster since I already knew what I wanted to do.

Here is the color palette used for this card

For this card, I started with a Whisper White base and added a layer of Pool Party. I embossed a Whisper White Layer with the Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder and sponged it with Pool Party Ink.

I cut out a Whisper White sunflower base, one sunflower outline in Pool Party and two outlines in Whisper White. I sponged the sunflower base with Pool Party and glued the outlines together (Pool Party on the bottom), with the Pool Party slightly offset to give it a 3-D look. I added the foliage cut from the dies in a combination of Pool Party, Whisper White and Vellum Cardstock. I stamped my sentiment and cut it out using a die from Tasteful Labels, sponging the label lightly, and added a bow made from the Pool Party Shimmer Ribbon.

For the inside panel, I stamped the sentiment, wrapped a piece of the Pool Party Shimmer Ribbon around the panel and attached it to my card base. I stamped the sunflower image, die-cut it and attached it to the corner. I then stamped the sunflower in the corner of the envelope to tie it all together.

Celebrate Sunflowers is beautiful in any color palette!

I love the Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle so much! It may be my favorite bundle in the catalog! For this card, I paired it with the Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder. I am so happy with the outcome.

Here is the color palette for this card

I used a sponge dauber to apply ink to my embossed background, to the solid sunflower image, some of the foliage, and the tag. I also applied ink with the dauber to my seam binding. I layered two Whisper White sunflower outlines on top of one Mint Macaron sunflower outline, with the Mint Macaron layer slightly (just barely) offset to add a bit of depth. I also cut some of the foliage out of Vellum Cardstock.

As always, thanks for visiting! If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out! If you need to order any of the supplies used in this card, just click the Add to Cart button and “Voila!’

Challenge: Z Fold Card

Yesterday, I stumbled upon this really cool group of Australian SU demonstrators – The Dimensionals. Every month they publish a set of tutorials for 3-D projects and when you purchase the tutorials, you also receive access to their Facebook group. This morning, they sent out a challenge to make a Z-Fold Card. The tutorial used the Perfect Peony set, which I don’t have yet, so I used the new Celebrate Sunflowers set and I am ridiculously happy with how it turned out! The tutorial was very easy to follow, and in not too terribly much time, I had this beautiful card to share!

Here is the color palette used

For this card, I used the following:

Stamps: Celebrate Sunflowers, Peaceful Moments (Sentiment)

Dies: Sunflower Dies, Hippo & Friends Dies

Cardstock: Whisper White, Bumblebee, Cinnamon Cider, Just Jade

Ink: Bumblebee, Just Jade, Cinnamon Cider, Pumpkin Pie

Misc.: Flowers For Every Season DSP, Retired SU Embossing Folder (I have no idea what it is), Dauber Brushes, Glue

All of these products can be found on my website at http://KimOwens.stampinup.net

I daubed ink onto the sunflower parts and leaves to add some depth before putting them together and I am pleased with how it turned out!
