Sunflower Convention Swap card

CONVENTION is coming... time for more Convention swaps!!!!  I was totally inspired by Jill's adorable card HERE, and decided I needed to make a swap card using her super cute flower idea!  WAY too cute, Jill!!! 

So I made a pile of flowers... a "paper flower garden"...

Sunflower 3

(I actually ended up making 2x this many!!) :)

Then I made it into this card with Chocolate Chip, Kiwi Kiss and Apricot Appeal cardstock:

Sunflower 1

I used the "Punches Plus" brass template and the paper piercer to add an oval of holes around the punched out greeting.

Sunflower 2

The flowers are super easy to make.. punch out Apricot cardstock with the Scallop Circle punch and then snip between each petal with Stampin' Up! Paper Snips! 

Sunflower 4

(thanks to my son for the fabulous photo!)

The flower centers are punched with the 1" circle punch out of the Bella Rose paper, and the Kiwi Kiss polka dot paper is also from the Bella Rose Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper pack!

If you'd like to know how to make the fun corrugated leaves, check my previous blog post HERE.

Have a FABULOUS day!
