Freebie Friday: Printable Vellum Sunflower Greeting Card

It has been nice to actually play in the dirt and grow flowers in our front yard!  The nasturtiums are going CRAZY and my mini sunflowers are such little show stoppers.

I thought it would be fun to make a greeting card featuring my sunflowers so the first step was taking a photo.

My computer software for editing photos has an “oil painting” option that I used to soften the crispness of the photo so it looked less like a photo and a little like a painting.

Next I printed the closeup of the sunflower on computer vellum paper and cut it out to attach on top of the cardstock sunflower.  Hint: if you don’t have vellum paper you can print out the sunflower on cardstock and still make a 3D greeting card.

After printing on the vellum paper, cut it out and secure to the top of the cardstock sunflower with a dab of hot glue.  Of course I had to use some brown glitter for the center.  This card will really add some sunshine to someone’s day!
