Create this fantastic card with the New Limited Edition Sunflower Stamp!
Trim a piece of white and green textured cardstock to 13.5 x 11cm. Put the trimmed green cardstock to one side. Cover with the white card with a same size piece of brown patterned paper. Cut two 10.5 cm parallel lines with a ruler and craft knife 1.5cm from the bottom edge of the card, and 2cm from each side (see downloads section).
Connect the two vertical lines at the bottom of the card to create a flap. Score a line from 1.5cm from the horizontal cut, and another score line 6cm from the horizontal cut. Score also where the two vertical lines end at the top of the card. At the end where the two lines are joined with a score line, punch a semi circle in the middle, using half of a large circle punch.
Create a tag by trimming a piece of latte cardstock to 12cm x 8.5cm. Trim the top corners to give a tag shape. Put to one side.
Apply adhesive on the left, right and bottom of the back of the white textured cardstock (that has been covered with the brown patterned paper). Also apply adhesive to the 1.5 cm scored flap. Take the tag and line up the bottom of your tag with the end of the flap. Secure using the adhesive.
Take the pre-cut green textured cardstock and stick to the back of the card. Cut out the semi-circle at the top to line up with the other semi-circle on the front of the card. Put to one side.
Stamp the sunflower stamp twice onto latte cardstock with black pigment ink and emboss with clear embossing powder. Cut out the flower on one image, and cut out the square on the other. Colour the sunflower and frame using the watercolour technique. Stick the sunflower to the image using 3D foam pads, and fix a brown mulberry flower and orange button to the middle of the flower. Mount the frame on to a larger piece of green textured card and fix eyelets in the corners. Stick the panel to the flap as shown.
Pull out the tag ands fix an eyelet and ribbon to the top. Draw a dotted line around the tag. Stamp and emboss the tag with Happy Birthday, and the revealed green card ‘with love’. Apply adhesive gems as shown to finish.
