Did it work? Did today’s card make you smile? I sure hope so! I had such a good time and smiled all through making this cheerful card.
Here’s the Details…
Materials & Measurements
- Real Red card base: 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″
- Crushed Curry card stock: 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8 and 5 1/4″ x 4 for the inside
- Whisper White card stock: 5 1/4″ X 4 and 5″ x 3 3/4″ for the inside
- Real Red, Crushed Curry, Old Olive 6 x 6 DSP: cut various sized strips. I cut 1/2″ and 1/4″ strips
- Real Red, Crushed Curry, Old Olive card stock for daisy and leaves
- Mat the card base with Crushed Curry and Whisper White panel.
- Arrange the vertical Gingham DSP strips and glue to the Whisper White panel.
- Stamp the sentiment, from the Daisy Lane stamp set.
- Line up the horizontal DSP strips under the stamped sentiment and glue.
- Stamp 2 large daisies on Real Red card stock in Real Red ink and 2 on Crushed Curry card stock in Crushed Curry ink. Punch with the Daisy Punch and the medium Daisy Punch.
- Stamp 3 sets of leaves, from the Floral Essence stamp set onto Old Olive card stock in Old Olive ink and punch with the Leaf Punch.
- Layer the daisies and adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Tuck the leaves underneath the flower and add mini Dimensionals to secure.
- The flower center is a retired enamel dot that I colored with a brown Sharpie.
- Add few 1/4″ gingham strips to the left side of the Whisper White panel.
- Stamp a sentiment. I used one from the Varied Vases stamp set.
- The envelope is embellished with additional 1/4″ strips of gingham.
I think the colors and the daisies really give off a sweet country vibe on this card. After I finished this card, I immediately want to make more in different color combinations. I haven’t yet but I know I will. If you CASE this card in another color combo, I would love to see it.
