Celebrate Sunflowers - A New Level of Wonderful

The card I am showing today is a fairly simple card but great for the autumn season and elegant. The sentiment, "congratulations on reaching a whole new level of wonderful" is unique in that it could be used as a thank you, thinking of you or just because card.

The colors for today's card are Early Espresso, Bumblebee and Gold (Foil).

I used the following cuts of cardstock:

  • Early Espresso (card base): 11" x 4¼", scored at 5½"

  • Bumblebee: 4¾" x 3½"

  • Gold (foil): 3½" x 1¼"


  1. Cut the Early Espresso cardstock to 11" x 4¼" and score at 5½"

  2. Cut the Bumblebee cardstock to 4¾" x 3½"

  3. Cut a piece of Gold foil to 3½" x 1¼"

  4. Place the Early Espresso card base into the Subtle embossing folder and run through your Big Shot (or equivalent)

  5. Using the large sunflower stamp from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set, cover in Early Espresso, stamp off then stamp on the bottom left hand corner - repeat again in the top right hand corner (as pictured)

  6. Stamp the "congratulations on reaching a whole new level of wonderful" sentiment in Versamark ink on a scrap piece of Early Espresso cardstock

  7. Cover with gold embossing powder and heat set it using your heat tool

  8. Use the Tailored Tag punch and punch out your sentiment

  9. Adhere the gold foil strip centered over the Bumblebee cardstock

  10. Cut a 4½" strip of Early Espresso faux suede trim and wrap around the gold foil, adhering in the back

  11. Using Stampin' Seal, adhere your Bumblebee to your card base, centered

  12. Place 4-5 Stampin' Dimensionals on the back of the punched out sentiment and center over the gold foil

  13. Cut approximately 6" of the Early Espresso faux suede trim and tie a bow

  14. Using a glue dot, adhere the bow on the top of the sentiment

  15. To finish off the card, add one gold metallic pearl on either side of the sentiment
