Pocketful of Daisies for the Pals Blog Hop

Welcome to the Pals’ May  Blog Hop. We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects with “More Than One Score.” You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Today’s card features some retiring as well as some new products coming in the Annual Catalog.  The newcomer is the Daisy Lane stamp set which features a smaller daisy and coordinating punch.  You’ll be able to purchase these as a bundle when the catalog goes live on June 4th.

I really enjoyed creating this card.  It seems any card that has some flower arranging makes me happy.

It’s all in the details…

  • The Whisper White card base measures 5 1/2″ x 11″ (a little larger than a regular A2 card).  It’s scored on the longer side at 2 1/2″ and 6 3/4″ and at 2 3/4″ on the short side only up to the second(6 3/4″) score line.
  • Cut on the 2 3/4″ score line to remove the top part of the front of the card.
  • Petal Pink card stock is cut 1/8″ smaller than each panel on the outside and inside front.
  • Fold the front panel at the first score line over to form an inside pocket to hold a gift card. You could easily eliminate this panel to create just a card.
  • Before adhering, punch with a small circle punch to form a notch (picture below).

  • The Soft Sea Foam panel on the front is cut an additional 1/8″ smaller than the Petal Pink panel and is embossed with the Tufted Embossing Folder.
  • I cut the pocket using the Pocket Framelits in Whisper White card stock and cut another pocket using a panel from the Beautifully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper from the Occasions Catalog to cover the white pocket.  I love the pretty detail it provided.
  • I layered two daisies to create each flower and along with the pretty fern also from the Daisy Lane stamp set arranged and adhered.
  • The sentiment on the small tag is from Bella and Friends stamp set, which is set to retire. It’s punched using the Classic Label punch and tucked among the flowers.
  • The inside is embellished with a pattern of Soft Sea Foam 6×6 DSP over the Petal Pink panel.
  • The sentiment, from the Varied Vases stamp set is stamped in Versa Fine Onyx Black ink on a 3 1/2″ x 2″ panel of Whisper White card stock.  I backed it with a piece of Petal Pink card stock cut 1/8″ smaller.  Can you tell that I prefer very thin margins!
  • I embellished the gift card pocket with another daisy.

  • To complete the project, the envelope flap is embellished with a piece of Soft Sea Foam card stock embossed with the Tufted Embossing Folder.

This is such a soft and pretty presentation for a gift card for so many different occasions.  I plan to use the same layout to create a few thank you and graduation cards…stay tuned.
