Hello all and a very happy Monday to you all. I'm posting a lot later than originally planned today but my life seems to be a whirlwind of medical appointments at the moment and I haven't had a second to post all day. I hope you all had a lovely weekend and to all the Mums and Nanas, I hope you had a very relaxing Mothering Sunday.
Today I wanted to share with you the card I made for my sister to give my Mum for Mothers Day. I had seen variations of this Banner Punch flower all over Pinterest and wanted to give it a go and create a Designer Series Paper sunflower. I looked through my stacks of different Designer Series Papers and settled on these lovely Daffodil Delight coloured papers from the Quatrefancy Speciality Designer Papers. I simply punched a big pile of Banners using the fabulous Sale-A-Bration freebie punch using two different Daffodil Delight designs. I layered the Banners up and attached them to a punched circle (punched from the Natural Composition Speciality Designer Papers).
I finished with a flower cut from the Natural Composition papers and layered with a Bright Designer Button. The leaves were created by punching a Pansy in green patterned paper and cutting the flower to form leaf shapes.
The 'Happy Mother's Day' sentiment was stamped using the Teeny Tiny Sentiments and punched with the Word Window Punch. I attached the sentiment to my Daffodil Delight 1/4" Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon bow using a tiny length of Bakers Twine.
I hope you enjoyed my crafty share today. I really enjoyed creating this punch sunflower and even more making it for my sister to give our Mum ;0)
