Hello crafty friends! This is Design Team member Crystal Komara here with you today. I know you’ve been seeing a lot of cards in honor, support and solidarity with Ukraine, and I’m here to share another variation featuring the blue and yellow colors we’ve all come to recognize from the Ukrainian national flag. I have also used the beautiful sunflower image from Joy Clair Designs called Thankful for You. If you would like to see more cards like this, simply follow the #cardsforukraine hashtag on social media and you will be amazed by the outpouring of love for an entire country shown in the form of handmade cards.
The base of this A2 sized card is made from 80 lb. Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. Using a lattice die, I cut the background from white cardstock. I stamped the sunflower from the Thankful for You stamp set twice in Versamark ink on watercolor paper and heat embossed the image with gold embossing powder. I colored in the sunflowers using Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. I fussy cut the sunflowers and adhered them to the card using foam adhesive for added dimension. I stamped the word “sending” in navy ink on a strip of thin white cardstock. I used a two-layer die to cut the word “love.” I cut the bottom shadow portion from navy cardstock and the top thinner outline portion from white cardstock. Using a fine-tip glue, I adhered the two layers together and then used foam adhesive to adhere both layers to the card.
To the people of Ukraine, know that the world stands with you in support of unity, of love and of peace.
