Sunflower using the Christmas Bulb Builder

A lovely couple have just moved into their first home together and one of them loves sunflowers, so, I made this sunflower using the Christmas Bulb Builder Punch.

I’ve already made a poinsettia using this punch but this is something very different.

It’s layers of the the bulb shape punched from Daffodil Delight and shaded on the edges using a Sponge Dauber.

The centre is an image from Balloon Celebration tone-on-tone. Stamping stripes from the Playful Backgrounds Stamp Set onto a piece of Cajun Craze card then became a pot.

Using a Light Old Olive Stampin’ Blend, I coloured a strip of Sheer Whisper White Ribbon to make the stem and a set of bow leaves.

It’s all set on Very Vanilla Cardstock as this gives a much softer feel than Whisper White.

The corners are given a softer shape with the Detailed Trio Punch and a spot of Wink of Stella in the centre of the flower adds some final bling.

As the card is a non-standard size, I also made a co-ordinating envelope from some retired DSP.

As you can see, this punch isn’t just for Christmas. It’s much more versatile, and you can make other things using the Christmas Bulb Builder Punch. It’s also the punch you will receive if you attend my Christmas Card Boot Camp Class (not the PM session). Book your place by 13th October.

Happy crafting
