You know that saying "Go big or go home"? This card is 6x6. That's BIG. I made it for my neighbour to send to a couple whose wedding she can't attend.
This is my second attempt that this card - here's the first. My neighbour wanted something with a little more 'presence' shall we say. She was very pleased with this one, which was a big relief to me, because I don't know how many leftover sunflower wedding cards I'm going to need this summer!
Again, I used a Stampin' Up poinsettia stamp (a bigger one from a different set this time), stamped, offset and stamped again so that the petals overlapped, then stamped a big circle in brown and filled it with Cinnamon stickles. I matted the main panel on gumball green and then on some beautiful yellow vellum.
And since the only 6x6 envelopes I have are brushed gold, this card is going to land on the doorstep with a nice solid visual and audible 'thump'. Presence indeed!
