Endlessly Grateful with Sunflowers Dies

Sunflowers bloom in Summer – you can picture the bright yellow flowers against a bright, blue sky, right? I’ve created a card that drops a golden sunflower into a modern, Fall-themed card. The card is very simple and very clean, but there’s something really special about this Fall-friendly sunflower. Here’s my card:

I cropped the large, detailed sunflower with the Sunflowers Dies. These dies have been around for quite some time, but the shiny foil and warm colors give this flower a new look. Here’s a look at the Sunflowers Dies:

The sentiment on my card if from the Very Best Occasions stamp set, new in Stampin’ Up!’s July-December 2022 Mini Catalog. Here’s a look at the incredible sentiments in this stamp set, which is sold separately or as a part of the Very Best Occasions Bundle:
