Friendship Bouquet - May Stamp of the Month

Sunflowers are so big and bold and beautiful! But this month's stamp set offers sunflowers that you can make big, bold, and bright - or soft and subtle! It's called Friendship Bouquet and you can get it for only $5 this month with a $50 order!

I love the soft colors in the artwork Close To My Heart created above. Perfect for mother's day or any day!

Here is a card I made with a more bold color scheme. 

I used a chocolate piece of our Victory paper on the card base, then paper pieced the flower using Topiary, Honey, and Chocolate cardstock.

I wanted to give the center of the flower more texture, so I added some liquid applique, then sponged with chocolate ink, and added a little more color with the chocolate marker.

On the flap I added a AP Cricut Shape8 (size 3 1/4") and cut in half. Then added a 1/2" strip of Topiary cardstock and a 1/4" strip of Honey cardstock. I embossed the Topiary cardstock with my Cuttlebug - Swiss Dots embossing folder.

Finally, I added the sentiment on an AP Cricut Shape4 (size 1") in Colonial White cardstock with the coordinating Layer Shape4 in the chocolate Victory paper.

Be sure to get yours this month! At the same time, you will qualify for our Dotty For You paper pack for only $5 also! The deals are rockin' this month!
