Kylie's International Blog Highlights July 2020

Welcome to Kylie Bertucci's Monthly International Blog Highlights for July as we share projects and ideas to help inspire you. Our theme for this month is Thank You and we have talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world sharing their projects with you today. 
 One of my favorite bundles in the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog is the Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle (item #154065). One of the reasons why I love it so much, is that it is so versatile and you can change the look and feel of this bundle simply by changing the colors for you r project. 
For this card design, I chose to use Rococo Rose cardstock for the card base and I added a layer of Soft Sea Foam cardstock for the background layer, that I embossed using the Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder (item #153200). I love the texture that this embossing folder adds to the design. 
I wanted my flower to look similar to a Gerbera Daisy, so I chose Blushing Bride cardstock for the background layer of the flower and I die cut the detailed layer from Rococo Rose cardstock using the Sunflowers Dies (item #152704). I punched a circle from So Saffron cardstock using the 1 1/2" Circle Punch (which fits perfectly behind the center of the detailed die cut) and I sponged it with So Saffron Classic ink. Using adhesive, I attached the sponged circle behind the center of the Rococo Rose detailed die cut. I attached Stampin' Dimensionals to the back of the So Saffron circle and then lined up the two layers before attaching the So Saffron circle to the center of the Blushing Bride flower base. To create the leaves, I die cut two of the base leaves from Soft Sea Foam cardstock and two detailed leaves from Just Jade cardstock and layered them together with adhesive. I also die cut one of the detailed fern leaves from Just Jade cardstock. 
The sentiment was created by heat embossing the image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set (item #152517) onto a 3/4" strip of Very Vanilla cardstock using Gold Embossing Powder and then I used the Lovely Labels Pick A Punch (item #152883) to decorate the ends. To assemble the card, I attached the fern leaves to the back of the flower and then attached the flower to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals. I attached the leaves so that tucked underneath the flower on either side of the fern leaves. I attached the sentiment along the bottom of the card front so that the flower petals slightly overlapped the sentiment label. For a touch of bling, I added 3 of the Gilded Gems to the card front and used Clear Wink of Stella on the flower and leaves for a touch of shimmer to finish off the design. 
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today. I hope that my card design helps inspire you to create your own wonderful Thank You cards.
