One of my favorite ways to display sentiments is using Stampin' Up!'s Small and Large Oval Punches. They layer neatly and elegantly. Tr?s cool with the three dimensional look of a Stampin' Dimensional or two sandwiched in between. However, these little beauties can multi-task and made today's sunflower pretty and precise.
The card base is Chocolate Chip (4.25 x 5.5). I inked the Print Pattern Background stamp in Chocolate Chip and stamped it on Barely Banana Card Stock. The "happy birthday" sentiment is inked and stamped using the same colors. I matted the sentiment on Chocolate Chip.
Six Large and five Small Oval Punches were snapped out of Barely Banana Card Stock. TIP: The edges were sponged in Chocolate Chip to add texture and so that they would stand out against the strong background. A Chocolate Chip circle was cut with Nestabilities circle die-cuts and embossed using a Cuttlebug.
TIP: I assembled and adhered the "petals" to the Print Pattern Background image and then cut off the left hand surplus for a straight edge. A few Barely Banana Brads seemed like the perfect highlight for the flower center.
