This is a 5.5 inch square card. The flowers were created with the Heartfelt Creations Aztec Gold Sunflowers stamp sets. Here are the Heartfelt Creations products used: HCPC 2293 Aztec Gold Sunflowers 2 Precut Set; HCPC 2294 Aztec Gold Sunflowers 1 Precut Set; HCPC 3376 Distressed Leaves PreCut Set; HCPC 3377 Sympathy Sentiment PreCut Set; HCD 711 Decorative Dutch Iris Die; and Blossom 2 Nestabilities
A piece of Basic Grey Designer Paper was embossed with the Cuttlebug Heritage embossing folder. The sentiment in the center of the frame was black embossed. The ivory piece on the right side of the card was embossed with the Cuttlebug Dotted Swiss embossing folder. The pretty brown flourish, cut out with the Decorative Dutch Iris Die, was added along the right side.
Each flower is a layer of three different Aztec Gold Sunflowers. They were stamped on ivory card stock with dark brown ink and cut out with the matching die. Scissors were used to cut between each petal. Using sponge daubers, each flower was sponged with first yellow ink, then pumpkin ink, and then around the edges with rust ink. The flowers were shaped then the layers attached with liquid glue. Gala Glitz Cello Art Glitter was added to the center of each flower. Five small Distressed Leaves were stamped with dark green ink on Ivory card stock then sponged with a lighter green ink. They were cut out, then dark green ink was sponged on the edges. They were shaped to give them a more distressed look. The flowers and leaves were arranged on the left side of the embossed frame.
