Hello! Today I have--yes you guessed it another flower card--LOL! But today's card is a really quick and simple one. I wanted to use one of the sentiments from the newly release stamp set Seeds of Kindness from JustRite Stampers and I thought it might look kind of neat in the center of a flower. The Seeds of Kindness stamp sets includes 6 Designer Centers and 6 Interchangeable Borders and fits with the 1-5/8'' Round Stamper. I started by stamping the sentiment with brown ink onto white cardstock and then I used the flower center from Sunflower Set One S4-157 die template to cut/emboss the flower center. Before removing the cardstock from the die template I used the die as a stencil inking through the holes. Then I also inked around the edges.Next I cut/embossed two of the sunflowers using the Wizard™ and Sunflower Set One S4-157 die template from Spellbinders™. For the sunflowers I used two colors of Post-it Craft Paper, Sunshine and Golden. The Post-it Craft Paper has a white core so I lightly sanded the diecuts to reveal the white core. I layered the two diecuts and then I inked the inside of the flower with brown ink. I added foam mounting tape to the backside of some of the petals to add some dimension. For the leaves I used Jungle Post-it Craft Paper and On The Vine Grand Border S7-017 die template with the Wizard™ to cut/emboss the vine. I cut a couple of pieces off of the vine and lightly sanded the cardstock. The card base is a light tan colored cardstock and I inked the edges with a brown ink. I also added brown ribbon and some tiny rhinestones. To add the ribbon I used Fabri-Tac and for the rhinestones I used Gem-Tac, both products are from Beacon Adhesives.
