I just recently got this Scallop Square die for my BigShot and I absolutely LOVE it!! I have cut quite a few these scallop squares out, but haven't put them to use on any cards yet. So, this morning, after I stamped down this new stamp from SU! conveniently called, "Sunflower," I thought the scallop background would look cute! I started off with my image panel being 4.5x4.5 and all of a sudden it was cut down to 3x3! This card is pretty small measuring 4.25x4.25!
I absolutely LOVE this stamp and I think my card turned out pretty cute! I would say this stamp is a must have for anyone who has a love for Sunflowers.
Here are the deets on how I made this card:
Using my SU! marker Daffodil Delight, I colored all the petals directly on the stamp. Then, I took my Chocolate Chip marker and started to color the inside of the flower. The, I grabbed my Early Espresso marker and just colored in the center trying to blend the Chocolate Chip and Early Espresso together. Next I Stamped down the Sunflower onto my paper. The cardstock size I started out with was 4.25x4.25 but then I cut it all the way down to 3x3!
Next I sponged some Crumb Cake all around my image panel. Next I roughed up all the edges of my cardstock and the took some Early Espresso and sponged all around the roughed up edges.
Next I chose some Crumb Cake cardstock (3 1/8" x 3 1/8") to place under my image panel and then I used some Early Espresso cardstock (3 1/4 x 3 1/4) to place under that! I texturized the Early Espresso to help my image panel POP a bit more! As you can see, I LOVE layers! lol
I thought it needed ONE more layer... so, I chose some Very Vanilla cardstock (3.5" x 3.5") and sponged all the edges with some Crumb Cake and then a little Early Espresso. Then roughed up all the edges and added it to my base which is the Scallop Square that I cut out with Early Espresso.
Next, I used some twine and an Early Espresso button in the center and added a tiny tag (I LOVE the tiny tag punch and stamp set) and then sponged it a bit with some Crumb Cake.
Hoe you all like my Sunflower card!!
Happy Friday, everyone!!
