Celebrate Sunflowers Thank You Card Give-away

Stampin Up Celebrate Sunflowers Thank You Card Idea -Rosanne Mulhern stampinup

I was so happy to see the Celebrate Sunflowers stamps and dies in the new Annual Catalog.  Sunflowers are so cheerful and rank right up there with daisies for me.   The images and dies in this bundle are big, bold and beautiful.

For today’s card, I used the smaller of the two flower images along with a sentiment from the bundle to create a thank you card.  I wanted a geometric-like black & white background but didn’t have a pattern of designer series paper that fit the bill, so I created my own background using 1/4″ and 1/8″ strips of Basic Black card stock placed diagonally on a piece of Whisper White card stock.

Materials & Measurements

  • Bumble Bee card stock:  5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″
  • Basic Black card stock: 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″
  • Whisper White card stock: 5 1/4″ x 4″
  • Basic Black card stock strips: 1/4″ & 1/8″

Details

  • Glue Basic Black card stock to the Bumble Bee card base.
  • Align the sentiment diagonally in the center toward the bottom of the Whisper White panel.  I used the Stamparatus for this.
  • Stamp the sentiment in black ink.
  • Add a 1/4″ strip of Basic Black card stock to either side of sentiment.  Then alternate the 1/8″ and 1/4″ strips to complete the card front, spacing evenly.  I cut the strips about 8″ long and trimmed them after gluing to the card stock.
  • Once trimmed, glue the Whisper White panel to the card.
  • Stamp and heat emboss 3 sunflowers and die cut using the Sunflower Dies.
  • Color with Stampin’ Blends.
  • Glue each flower to a piece of Basic Black card stock and cut a border around each.
  • Arrange the flowers and adhere them to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

  • The inside is stamped with a sunflower and sentiment from the Ornate Thanks stamp set.
  • A thin strip of Basic Black card stock and 2020-2022 In-Color (Bumble Bee) 6 x 6 DSP is a simple way to embellish the inside.
  • The envelope is also embellished with card stock and DSP.

After I created this card, I thought that perhaps I should have made the background 2 colors.  So I created another card using 1/4″ strips of Basic Black and 1/8″ strips of Bumble Bee card stock.  I like it well enough but ultimately decided I preferred just the Basic Black version.

  1. I really like the card with the extra yellow stripe.

  2. I like the Basic Black card. I am not sure how to order on your sight. Can I just order a one card set? Do you understand what I am trying to ask you? I used to go to a card making class before the virus, which I loved. We met once a week. I miss it so much. You have a good sight on showing how to put the card together.
    Thanks, Linda matz

    • Hi Linda, Are you asking to order one of these sunflower cards? I’m in the process of creating a monthly card kit that will be available by the end of the month. I’ll post it on the blog and can also email you when it’s ready.

  3. I’m liking the b/w background.

  4. I love the black and bumblebee diagonal stripes. They really pop!

  5. The bumble bee card is awesome, great bright colors to cheer anyone up.

  6. I liked the black and white one and then when I saw the bumble bee/white , I liked it better as it really pops.

    You do such a great job coloring with the pens. I tried my best yesterday and did not do a well as you can do.

    Thank you for posting the details of this card. you went to a lot of work creating your back ground. Time well spent, I think. Love it

  7. What color did you use for the center and also, which color did you stamp the Sunflower with? thanks so much.

    • Lora, I stamped the sunflowers with Versa Mark and heat embossed with black embossing powder. I like to do this because it’s easier to “stay in the lines” when coloring! For the flower centers, I used the Light Soft Suede blend.
