Using the Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle, here is a monochromatic card using Very Vanilla, Crumbcake and Soft Suede cardstock, brighted with a few Gilded Gems, some Bumblebee stems from Sunflowers dies and a pretty bow made with Bumblebee Gingham Ribbon.
I used a Blender pen to watercolor the centers of the sunflowers using the Soft Suede ink from the stamped sunflower image. I stamped the sentiment on 1-1/8″ x 4-1/2″ strip of Very Vanilla cardstock and created an elongated punched sentiment using the Timeless Label Punch.
Tips & Tricks: Elongate the length of your Timeless Label punch. By inserting only one the right-side of the cardstock strip through the punch opening, I punched the only the far right edge. Then I inserted the other end of the strip through the left-side of the punch in order to punch the opposite side. By sliding one end of the strip of cardstock at a time into the punch, I was able to “extend the length” of the punch to accommodate a longer sentiment. This is a great trick to get more use from your punches.
