Easter Sunflower Card
Posted on January 20 2021
Hello and Happy Easter! Haha! It's never to early to get started on Spring cards ... especially when it's so cold outside that your little tosies are cold! I altered the Sunflower Stencil from LDRS Creative and made it into a bright and happy Easter background!
The great thing about floral stencils is that you can change up the colors to suit the season. The Sunflower Stencil is perfect for making gorgeous fall sunflowers, or bright red summer flowers, or even pink Easter flowers! You could mask off the stencil for perfect flowers, but I didn't take the time because .... I'm a lazy crafter! I used fingertip blending brushes so that I could do my best to keep the ink where it was supposed to be, but I still had some overlap and that's okay! I used Pistachios-A-Plenty Hybrid Ink for the leaves, Soft Kisses Hybrid Ink for the flower petals, and Dan-D-Lion Hybrid Ink for the flower centers.
I didn't want to cover up too much of the background, so I chose to use the sentiments in the Hydrangeas Stamp Set. The large "happy" is bold enough to be seen, but doesn't take over the card. I stamped "happy" with Mrs. Periwinkle Hybrid Ink and bubble cut around the sentiment. I stamped "Happy Easter" with La La Lavender Hybrid Ink and trimmed it into a sentiment strip and added both sentiments to the card with foam tape.
I finished the card by embellishing with some pearly gems. I hope you're staying warm and thinking spring! See you soon!
