I started with a piece of Bumblebee cardstock for the card base. Then I added a layer of Basic White cardstock that I ran through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine using the Hive 3D Embossing Folder. I used the Sunflowers Dies to cut the sunflower out of Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper and the detailed part out of Bumblebee cardstock. I cut another detailed part out of Early Espresso cardstock and cut everything off so that just the middle remained. The center was cut using Basic Black cardstock. I cut the leaves out of Pear Pizzazz cardstock and ran them through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. I also cut the detailed part of the leaves using Pear Pizzazz cardstock.
Bundle Alert Sale: Although I didn’t use the sentiment in the Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle, this bundle is on sale for this month only. It includes the Sunflowers Dies and Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set. This set of dies and stamp set were brought back just for this sale so on April 1st, you will no longer be able to purchase the two together with a discount.
To adhere the two bumblebee sunflower pieces together, I added Multipurpose Glue to the center of the detailed sunflower. Then I glued the Basic Black center to the sunflower and then glued the Early Espresso center to the top. I used Multipurpose glue (very small dots of glue) to add the detailed leaf to the embossed leaf. I added Mini Glue Dots to adhere the leaves to the sunflower. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the sunflower and adhered it to the front of the card.
The sentiment was stamped in Early Espresso ink using the stamp set Boughs & Blossoms and then cut out using the Seasonal Labels Dies. I used Multipurpose Glue to adhere it to the sunflower. To complete the card, I added a piece of Basic White cardstock to the inside and then placed five Holiday Rhinestones on the front of the card.
