I was not sure where to start with posting all the new cards I have created with the new Heartfelt Creations Classic Sunflower Collection. I created a box full of cards plus decorated a Fall wreath. I began by creating a bunch of sunflowers with the Classic Sunflower PreCut Set and die cut them with the matching die; below I will show you.
The Classic Sunshine Paper Collection is gorgeous. You can use just the card panels to create quick and easy cards, or you can use the stamps to add other elements to really dress them up. All the design papers used on this card are from the Classic Sunshine Collection. To add dimension, I added one sunflower created with the Classic Sunflower PreCut Set. To brighten the sunflowers in the design paper, I used a bright yellow marker on the petals. Twine and floral embellishments were added under the sunflower. The leaves were die cut and colored in autumn colors and placed under the flower. The border down the left side is also from the design paper. I added a corner, die cut from the Heartfelt Creations Perfect Petals Die Set. The tag was cut out and mounted to a larger, mustard colored, background. A piece of twine was added. Glitter was added to the die cut sunflower as well as the sunflowers in the design paper.
For the completed sunflowers in this picture, I created centers with two sizes of die cut "suns". I cut between each point of the sun to make it "frilly". I glued together 7 to 9 "suns" for each center. Some of the other sunflowers I created have small beads glued in the center. I used a mixture of gold, rust and black beads. After all the sunflowers were created, I sprayed them with a glossy finish to preserve them. This is important especially for the flowers created for the wreath, which I will post later.
I hope you will come back to see the other items I created with this collection.
