Sunflower Card

August has always been a sunflower theme for me so I'm looking forward to posting some projects starting with a box card I created earlier this year.

Sunflower Box Card

For this card I used two different kits from Mary at  The box card itself is from Mary's Wildflower Saloon Kit and uses the Trunk of Wildflowers Box Card.  I used everything except for the flowers with no adjustments to this pattern.  

The sunflowers are from the Harvest Sunset kit.  I shrank these down to approximately 30-40% of the original size.  It does take a bit longer to cut all these tiny sunflowers but it created such a cool effect!


Before assembling the sunflowers I inked up the edges with red ink from ColorBox and Walnut Stain Distress Ink from Tim Holtz.  Then for the centers, I used a variety of glitter following Mary's instructions on her video tutorial.


For the back of the card, I started by embossing the panels with Tim Holtz woodgrain embossing folder.  Then just to give it an extra touch, I used SVGCuts French Quarter Ironwork pattern.

 This is one of many variations I have used this card pattern for and while this one took a bit longer, I was so happy with the end result that I will be making a few more.
