This card seems simple, and it may be, but it was very time consuming. It turned out really detailed and bright. I've made it in 3 different backgrounds and each with a different surprise inside. I guess the time-consuming part was making over 25 of these cards. Most of these cards were made for the Scrapbook Expo Sacramento Card Swap. I've kept several as they are an all-purpose card, and I can grab one when needed.
I did get the card base and envelopes at Michaels on sale, that saved a bit of time in not having to cut and fold the card. The sunflowers were cut with the Cricut, but it only had an outline cut. So, I duplicated the image and then did a 'hide contour' in order to make the solid background image. Gluing the outline to the back of the flower was tedious and required a steady hand. I added a few leaves and some gems (not shown). Inside I made a pop-out 'saying' by gluing in a strip of 1" x 4" folded at 1", 2" and 3.5". I also added an outline of another sunflower cut and white paper for adding a personal note.
