Thanks a Daisy

June 13, 2020

Hello and welcome friends!  We are so happy you are here.

We are sharing a somewhat simple card today that was created with minimal supplies and came together quickly.

Focal Point: 

  • The flower is from Altenew‚Äôs ‚ÄúSpring Daisy‚ÄĚ stamp set. It was colored with copic markers and then colored pencils gave it more shadow and depth.¬† The coordinating die was used to cut out the flower and leaves.
  • The sentiment die is called ‚ÄėFancy Thanks‚ÄĚ and is also made by Altenew. The sentiment was cut from black cardstock several times and layered for dimension.

Background Panel:

  • Three white cardstock panels were cut to measure 5.5‚ÄĚ x 6‚ÄĚ.
  • The two smallest ‚ÄúHemstitch Squares‚ÄĚ dies by Spellbinders were used to cut openings with Hemstitching around each opening in two of the cardstock panels.
  • Black cardstock was used to cover the Hemstitched holes on the back side of the two panels.

Card Assembly:

  • The panel with the smallest square opening was mounted onto the solid white cardstock panel.
  • The panel with the larger square opening was then mounted on top of that using foam squares to add dimension.
  • The flower and leaves were adhered to the center opening using foam squares and liquid glue.
  • The sentiment was adhered in place with liquid glue.
  • The completed panel was mounted to a black card base measuring 5.75‚ÄĚ x 6.25‚ÄĚ.
  • Wink of Stella was added to the center of the flower for a little shine.¬†

Thanks for visiting us today.  Stay well and healthy!

Until next time,
