new Birdie Brown stamp set. It's very exciting, and I can hardly wait! So, I thought I would occupy my time by making a card with one of the older Birdie Brown sets - Sunflower Sweetheart.
I started by stamping the girl, flower cart and trio of sunflowers on some Copic marker paper, using MFT Hybrid ink in black licorice. I colored the images with my Copics, then carefully cut them out. This stamp set has a matching die set, but I didn't want a white border around the images, so I fussy-cut them with a pair of scissors.
After cutting them, I got to work on the panel. I die-cut a scalloped rectangle from brown cardstock, using Mama Elephant's Femme frames die. I used the stitched rectangle die from the same set to cut out a piece of plain white cardstock, and a piece of patterned paper from My Mind's Eye Ashbury Heights paper. I used the largest stitched scallop border from Lawn Fawn's Stitched Scalloped Borders die to cut the patterned paper in half.
I prepared a base from sunshine yellow cardstock, and adhered the panels together. I also adhered the girl and the layered cart and sunflowers to the front of the card. For the sentiment, I cut a small banner out of white cardstock and stamped in black ink. I used my scissors to create a fish-tail edge and adhered the sentiment to the card.
As a last step, I added some Wink of Stella glitter to the sunflowers, along with a few dots of white gel pen for highlight. I adhered 3 yellow enamel dots above the sentiment.
