Hi crafters! I decided to show one of the cards from the Vintage Sunflower set today. This is a beautiful set by Justrite. I embossed the top part of the white background first using the large polka dot mask. I matted it on a piece of tan card. I stamped the sunflower twice. I coloured the flowers on both and just the stem and leaves on one of them. I used the Tim Holtz distress markers to colour it and added a bit of Diamond Sparkles for bling. I used a white gel pen to add some highlights to the flowers. I cut out the flower on the second one and decoupaged it up using mounting foam. I cut a Filigree Delight die and mounted it up with foam so the flower showed through the opening. The second flower has been stamped so that the tip of the flower was under the frame so the decoupaged flower is actually lined up and placed above the frame. I stamped the sentiment from the Bold Sentiment set from Creative Expressions and added a thin yellow line by hand to the stamped sentiment. I cut it into a strip and added it below my focal element. I tied a messy bow of white seam binding. I added some yellow Bakers Twine and finished with an antique gold button. I finished with a double white pierced mat and some flatback pearls on the frame. I hope you like it! Finished dimensions are 7" x 8 1/2" in size.
