Heartfelt Autumn Sunflowers Card: How to Make it

  • Begin by creating a 5″ x 7″ kraft top fold card base with a 1/2″ spine.
  • Then cut a 4 7/8″ x 6 7/8″ panel of green cardstock.
  • Now die cut the Intricate Swirl Frame from cream cardstock.
  • Next, cut a 3 1/4″ x 5 1/4″ panel of Sweet Peony Design paper.  Back with dimensionals, then attach inside the intricate frame.
  • Now adhere dimensionals to the back of the Intricate Swirl Frame and adhere to the green cardstock layer.

    These are beautiful sunflowers! They are wonderful on your card. I have not gotten them because I’m not sure how to stamp that large stamp and then cut out the flowers. Your card is inspiring.
