Boxed Sunflowers

     This card was made for a "no adhesives" challenge. At first I thought it would be pretty much impossible.It ended up being a chance to get out tools I rarely use. 
     I started by stamping 3 identical sunflowers on sweet corn CS and adding shading with Copics Y26,28. I trimmed two pieces of acetate and formed three pockets using the Fuse, each containing a sunflower and brown confetti. The frame is made from brown art foam. Tan brads through all of the layers holds it all in place. 

        I was unhappy with the backs of the 8 brads showing on the inside of the card. I stamped 3 sunflowers on a piece of powder blue CS and hand-stitched it to the inside of the card. This card fits perfectly into a business size envelope.

  3. Oh, I love shaker cards and you made a lovely one. Great idea to hide the back of the brads with that beautiful detail inside, very clever.
