I was playing around with a shape/color combination for a different card idea I had . . . when . . . hey! That would make a darling sunflower! So I grabbed sunflower colors: Crushed Curry, So Saffron and Soft Suede.
Using two of the Framelits from the Floral Frames Collection, I cut the petals from the yellows. A circle from the Circles Collection of Framelits created the center of the flower. To give the center a little more dimension, I ran the circle through the Big Shot inside the Square Lattice Embossing Folder. NOTE: After having completed the card, I now wish I had sponged the edges of the circle. Well, maybe next time.
I then raided my button collection jars and dug out a variety of neutral-hued buttons in various sizes, and glued them in place to represent sunflower seeds. Uh huh. Use your imagination.
Unfortunately, the photo doesn't quite show all the dimension of the card. It REALLY pops! Including the buttons, it stands more than a half inch away from the card base.
Anyway, I think it turned out pretty cute. Let me know what you think.
