I have more sunshine to spread – this card is based on the card in the Stampin’ Up! Occasions Mini catalog for the Something Sweet Stamp set.   I made a few changes to my version and wanted to share it with you today.

The stamp set is Something Sweet – I happen to have it in the clear mount.  I stamped the big circle on Whisper White card stock and then stamped the petals around the ring.  I did two layers of petals – you could do more or just a single layer like the sample in the mini.  First I punched out the center with the 1-3/4″ Circle Punch and then I cut out around the petals.

The card base is Old Olive – a 6×6 piece folded in half.  The front has a 1-3/4″ hole punch in it.  That is where the treat cup will go.  The flower is just attached on the front around the treat cup.  For this card I made a trap door so that the seeds could come out without tearing up the card.

The trap door is a 3/4″ circle punched out of the Chocolate Chip piece on the front cover.  Just make sure the little circle ends up inside the big one.

When you attach the Chocolate Chip piece to the inside of the card don’t put any adhesive where the treat cup is so that you have a pocket to slide the door into and cover the little hole.

These are sunflower seeds that you plant and I printed the instructions from the package and attached those on the inside.  I love how this card turned out – you can send it at any time – You are my sunshine – works any time – don’t you think?
