Mini Flat Sunshine Cards

I just completed a set of 120 mini (2-3/4 x 4-1/4") flat "sunshine" themed cards for our senior center. The cards are little thank-you notes to go into box lunches for the United Way Day of Caring volunteers who will be doing community service projects around town.

Three different designs, all very simple for me to make in quantity.  I like the bright and sunny colors and images, and I enjoyed creating something for this event.

Note: the sunflower and suns are orange, like the patterned paper strip - not red like my image! 

Card details:
  • Card stock is Papertrey Ink (PTI) harvest gold (medium yellow), bright buttercup (bright yellow), and the bitty dot print from PTI orange zest pattern pack (retired). 
  • The upper left corner of the sunflower card is rounded with Crop-a-Dile 1/2" corner chomper.
  • The sentiments are computer printed in black and orange on white 1 x 2-5/8" mailing labels - "Thank you for bringing sunshine into the lives of others!"  The fonts are Lucida Handwriting (sunflower card), Tekton Pro (partial sun card), and Harrington (full sun card), all with expanded character spacing.  
  • The sunflower is from PTI simple sunflower, and the sun is from PTI what the doodle: sun, both stamped with PTI orange zest ink cube, plus PTI olive twist (dull green) ink for the sunflower centers.  
  • In the centers of the full suns, I added a 3/4" solid circle from PTI bits & buttons, using PTI bright buttercup ink on the harvest gold cards or PTI summer sunrise  (yellow-orange) ink on the bright buttercup cards.
