The first thing that we will do is prepare our paper. We need an A2 base
in white cardstock. So, to make the base cut an 8-1/2″ x 11″ piece of
cardstock in the middle at the 5-1/2″ mark on the long side. Then take
one of those pieces and place on a paper scoring board and score in the
middle on the long edge at 4-1/4″. Now, you have a base!

The other cuts are:

  • Yellow cardstock cut to 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″
  • White Cardstock cut to 5 – 1/4″ x 4″

Using a stamping platform stamp the sentiment to the left center of the card in leaf green ink. Stamp the Jumbo Sunflower Peg Stamp in sunflower ink three times on the right side of the card. Stamp the Mini Sunflower Peg Stamp in chrome yellow. Stamp the Tiny Sunflower in sunflower ink and chrome yellow ink.

Draw the stems down the paper, skipping over flowers when needed. Stamp the leaves in leaf green ink along the stems.

Using a French grey colored pencil dot the center of the two largest sunflowers to create sunflower seeds. Using the yellow and orange colored pencils, color in the sunflowers.

After the stamping is done, lay a piece of tracing paper over the sunflowers and with a pencil trace out the flowers. Run the pencil along the right edge and bottom of the card. Cut along those lines.

Re-apply the tracing paper to the card and rub a light blue watercolor pencil along the top portion of the card and a green watercolor pencil along the bottom of the card. Brush with water. Let dry.

Glue to yellow card stock. Attach ribbon vertically along the left side of the card between the sentiment and card edge. Adhere on the back with tape. Glue to the card base.

For the envelope, stamp the sunflowers and leaves in the same colors as before along the front edge of the envelope without stems.
