Golden Glitter Sunflowers Card
Posted by Susan J. Deep Red Stamps on May 28th 2022
Anytime you add glitter to a project the result is extraordinary, especially if you it comes out so good that you can gift share it with someone. Here we make a card using a couple of our sunflowers stamps. We also add glitter to the center of the flower to create a card that will make them go 'wow'.
Materials used in this project:
Sunflowers Background Rubber Stamp (stamp 2x) onto white card stock
Yellow card stock
Orange card stock
White card stock
First, take the Large Sunflower Rubber Stamp and stamp it in black ink onto white card stock. Color it in and trim it out with scissors around the design. You can also color in the white trimmed area. I used green to color around the outside of the petals.
Once cut out, add a generous amount of clear glue to the center of the flower. Then sprinkle glitter onto the glue. Set it aside to dry. You can now work on the sunflowers background part.
Next, take the Sunflowers Background Rubber Stamp and stamp it 2x onto white card stock. This background stamp measures 3 inches by 4 inches and is perfect to create this 5x7 card.
You can use a stamping platform like I did to get the designs very close. Hint: before you stamp, trim the excess rubber on each side of the stamp so your alignment is easy.
You can also simply use an acrylic block by hand. Our Large Deluxe Acrylic Stamping Block was designed to fit these background sized stamps. And you can use the same block for the Large Sunflower Rubber Stamp as well!
It's okay if you miss the alignment because we will cover the meeting place with a ribbon or paper strip.
Assemble the mat layers of your card and add the center sunflower. You have created a simple, yet cheery card. Sunflowers always brighten anyone's day!
