By Nicky Gilburt

You’ll need

  • John Next Door Autumn kit
  • white A6 card blank
  • white, coral & brown cardstock
  • Antique Linen, Mustard Seed, Dried Marigold, Spiced Marmalade, Candied Apple, Mowed Lawn & Rusty Hinge Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Ink
  • Onyx Black VersaFine inkpad
  • ink-blending tool
  • sanding tool
  • 3D foam tape

Step by step

1 Blend ink, from Antique Linen through shades of yellow and orange to Candied Apple, over a 12.5cm square of cardstock.

2 Emboss in the folder then use a sanding tool to sand all the coloured ink off the embossed leaves, revealing the white core.

3 Trim to 8×11.5cm then layer onto coral and brown cardstock using 3D foam tape. Affix to the card front.

4 Blend a circle of Dried Marigold ink on spare cardstock and add Rusty Hinge in the centre, then stamp the large sunflower in Onyx Black ink. Colour cardstock using Mowed Lawn ink and stamp leaves, then cut out all the elements.

5 Arrange the sunflower and leaves on the card front using 3D foam tape.

6 Stamp a sentiment on white cardstock, trim and add I the top-right corner to finish.

Top tip

For easy colouring of flowers and leaves, colour the cardstock with ink first, then stamp and cut around the outside of the stamped lines
