Sunflower Cards

Since it is fall, I decided to use a sunflower image from Flourishes "Sunflowers" set to make a birthday card and an anniversary card.  The happy events are in the fall, so why not make the cards with fall colors and images?

I started by being inspired by a card by Debbie Olson HERE.  I used her design, and just changed out the stamp and papers.  Although, I found it interesting that her stamp and mine were so similar I had a hard time finding the difference.

The papers are from DCWV "The Lemon Flower" Mat stack and Card Stack.  I stamped the sentiment onto a tag cut with Spellbinders Nestabilities.  All the other shapes were cut with Spellbinders as well.  I popped up the sentiment tag with dimensionals and then wrapped some hemp cord around the card.

I rounded the edges with a corner rounder.

 My next card was for a fall anniversary.  I used paper from DCWV "Amber Autumn" and "Pumpkin Pie".

Again, all the shapes were cut with Spellbinder's Nestabilities, and I wrapped hemp around the card base for embellishment.  Since Anniversary cards are for the guys as well as the girls, I don't like to make them too feminine.

Have a great day! Amy
