Hi everyone. I’m here today with a card showcasing the amazing new Sunflower die from the January 2016 Cheery Lynn Designs new release.
This die is really a ‘show-stopper’. I cut the sunflower twice in dark yellow cardstock and lightly inked the petals and the flower center. I also used a stylus tool to shape the petals. Then I layered the pieces offsetting the petals. I added the stem and leaves under the flower and ‘planted it’ in one of the nested flower pot dies. For the flower pot I cut two pots and I cut the top rim off the second piece to layer on top to give some added dimension. I also inked the edges and shadows on the pot.
I used the Fleur de Lis Border Set to add a little interest around the outside of my cream base. The sentiment was stamped and then cut with the largest Pierced Banner die. I lined up one side, cut half way and then turned the die around, lining up the holes on the side and cut the other half. This gave me the dove tail look on both ends.
Cheery Lynn Dies used:
You know how I love to finish my cards off with big bows, but this time the sunflower wanted to take center stage. I added a small loopy bow made with Burlap String from Really Reasonable Ribbon to the bottom of the card above the sentiment. It added a nice rustic look to the card. The Bow-it-All V2.0 can make perfect bows from 1/2″ to 9-1/2″ wide.

This is awesome and love the die-cut sunflower. So blessed you joined our bi-weekly Challenge at Word Art Wednesday and hope you join us again for a new Challenge that started yesterday. Leaving you with the inspiration of God's Word in Isaiah 40:8 which tells us, "The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God endures forever."
