For my card, I stamped the sunflowers, colored them with markers and used the out ofย  the box Nestie technique and a labels 8 to cut it out. It’s matted on a larger black layer. For the next layer, I used some fancy edge scissors, called sunflower, to trim around the rectangle, then sponged ink on the edges.

The grid background was done by covering the white c/s with some drywall mesh then sponging yellow and orangey inks over it. After removing the mesh, you get this wonderful grid pattern. I added a narrow black border (also trimmed w/ the scissors) near the edge of my 5.5 x 4.25 white card. A checkered bow and Happy Fall tag finished the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed my project today. From here, hop over to Connie McCotter’s blog to be inspired and blessed!

    Had to come back a second time after reviewing well done lovely blue chickory blossoms. How enjoyable both cards were.
    Impressive fog and mist came to mind when vellum was incorporated. In this heat, what a mental relief! Much needed!
    Very enjoyable…return to enjoy a second mental spa moment.
    Thank you.
    Keep Looking UP!
