Sunflower Card

Sunflower Card

Hello everyone! Just wanted to share a card that was made with a couple of different cartridges. I used my Gypsy to design the card. The card base was created using the Wrap It Up cartridge. The base was cut at 6 inches and I used the hide contour feature so the card would just be a scallop circle card.

Sunflower Sunshine Card

The circle on the front of the card was cut using George and Basic Shapes and cut at 6-1/4 inches. The sunflower was cut using the Just Because Cards cartridge and was cut at 10 inches. Using the layer feature on the gypsy I was able to determine the height needed for the sunflower in order for it to be proportionate to the card.

I cut part of the stem off of the sunflower to create the look I wanted. The inside scallop circles were cut at 4-1/-3/4 inches. The paper used for this card is from October Afternoon. They are one of my favorites.

Sunflower Sunshine Card Inside

I stamped the sentiment on the inside of the card. The ribbon is from my local craft store.
