A Sunflower Leaving Card

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

Today is the last day of school for six weeks. For the me the holiday starts at 12:00. I probably won't get away then you know how it is saying goodbye to people.

This is another of the leaving cards I made for the end of term. It is okay to share this card now as the lady in question has received it. This is another A4 card that was signed by lots of people.

I bought the  Spellbinders sunflower die set so that I could decorate a gift bag for the wedding last week. I knew the bride would be carrying sunflowers. I liked the sunflowers so much I decided to use them on the leaving card as well. I must mention that I am getting on very well with my Spellbinders Platinum machine I am using the plates from my old Grand Calibur with it. 

The die set comes in multiple parts and you cut them several times to make the sunflowers. 

This central section was made with the Sue Wilson Just for you die set. 

Here is the decorated gift bag I think I made it just a bit more special. I did add a tag with the bride and groom's names on. 

I have a few days at home on my own before my husband is on leave the following week. I am hoping to make some head way with the Save the Date cards for our daughter's wedding and I would like to get ahead with my design team projects. 

I would like to enter the Summer Stop Challenge at Cuttlebug Mania Challenge Blog and Week 238 at Pixie's Snippets Playground.  I would also like to be considered for the Design Team Call at Papermill Direct. 

Enjoy the rest of the week. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie

Gorgeous card Jackie. I love sunflowers and bought this die awhile ago but rarely use it because I find it too fiddly. I salute your patience.
Enjoy your holidays. I do hope the weather continues for you.
