Today I have a Cricut Sunflower Card for my end of summer Design Team Post for My Cricut Craft Room. I’m sad to see summer come to an end, but I will be buying chrysanthemums, pansies, gourds, and pumpkins soon.
Instructions for this Cricut Sunflower Card
I used a piece of sunshine yellow for the card base. It measures 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″. This is a standard size for a card. It will fit into an A2 Invitation size envelope.
Then I added a layer of pumpkin orange cardstock that measures 5 1/4″ x 4″. The top layer has an off white background and a faint golden yellow print. It measures 5″ x 3 3/4″. I used a Martha Stewart Punch down the right side.
I cut the 4″ sunflower using the Cricut Stretch Your Imagination Cartridge. I used the layers feature to make the flower different colors. I started with a brown base. Then I added the green leaves and finally the gold flower.
The center of the flower is cut out so that the brown centers shows through from the base. Before attaching the mats to the card base, I tied a yellow dotted ribbon bow around them.
I didn’t add a sentiment, since I’m not sure how the card will be used. I have a few ladies who love buying my cards without sentiments so they can send well wishes to let friends know that they are thinking of them. What a kind gesture!
The Cricut Stretch Your Imagination Cartridge is very versatile with die cut shapes for lots of occasions and seasons. Here are some other Stretch Your Imagination Projects that you might enjoy.
