Sunflowers markers
These are my copic I used to color my image. My stamp is from Sylvia Zet and she is called “Give peace a chance”. My sentiment is from Stampendous.

I choose most of the paper I wanted to use. What I did for each layer I used a different color, hoping that would make it easier for you to understand. I color my main image I’m going to put on the front and decide what sentiment I want to use inside.

Back is cut 6.5 by 6 inches (gold paper)
Inside is 5.5 by 6 inches (green)
Front is 7.5 by 4 inches (blue)
After you have cut your back layer 6.5 X 6 inches, you need to score 1 inch on the 6.5 inch and fold toward the inside of the card.
I choose to use Martha Steward Shells Border punch. You can use any kind of border punch you want.
Punch your sides.

This is the inside layer you will cut it 5.5 by 6 inches and score .75 (3/4) inch and use your border punch on the 5.5 inch side.
So it will look something like this. I just set them together.
For the top layer cut it 7.5 by 4 inches. You will score it at the 6 inch line.

My layers are all cut out and I used a spellbinder (mega nestabilities curved rectangles) to cut the rest of my layers out, so not you can embellishment them how ever you would like.
If you are going to do any sponging to the edges you should do that now.
On the top layer where you scored the 1.5 inch you need to tape or glue that to the top of the last layer.
This is what it will look like.

Take the middle layer.
Now you can add the middle layer and glue or tape it to the last layer. I do not want to confuse you but if you had used all one color of paper you could glue or tape the middle layer to the top layer. Let me show you how they look. The first one I taped the middle to the top, second one the middle to the last layer and the last one the middle to the last layer.

He love me He love me not
The punch I use for this one is from Easy Cut Crafts it is called Baby’s Breath.

As you can see I used distress ink. I also used some polyshrink (shrink plastic) I have not used that in a long time it was so much fun. The extra sunflower stamp was a free stamp that came with Sylvia Zet stamp set and I wanted to use it so I stamped it a couple times on the polyshrink and cut them out and used my heat gun.

This is how they looked before I heated them and I colored them with my copic markers.
This how they look after they have been heated.

Here you can see how much small they are. I added them to the area where you would sign you name. The young lady I made this for she love pearls so I did add some extra one for her. I hope you under stand my tutorial. If you do not PLEASE let me know or if you have any questions just ask or email me at I will get back to you. Thanks for stopping and have a wonderful week.
