Sunflower Cutting File

I created this file a while ago but never made a project out of it, yesterday I had some time to craft and thought this would be a great opportunity to use this file.  Once I had assembled the flower and leaves then came the big challenge...what do I put it on?  I decided a card would be the best choice given the time I had.

I'm a big fan of embossing folders and have accumulated a large number of them over the past few years.  Some of them come in collections others as single purchases.

Most of the cards I make are 4.25" x 5.5" but this one is 5" x 7".  Most of my embossing folders are for the 4.25" x 5.5" cards, I know some of these folders can be used to create larger embossing areas but I've never had much luck with that.  I have a few 5" x 7" folders and this one is the least theme specific.  I believe it's called "Plaid" and comes in the Winter Wonderland collection.  I decided to give it a go and have to say that I'm very pleased with the design and the way that the card turned out.

This flower could easily be adapted to a daisy or chrysanthemum by simply changing the colors and can be used for many different of occasions

The sunflower cutting file, which includes the petals and leaves, is available as a free download.  There are several files types included in the folder for different digital cutting machines.  If you will be cutting it by hand use the .pdf file.  To get the free file, click here then on the FREE tab.
