Thoughtful Daisies

Hello my crafty friends!

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  Weather is getting better the sun is getting higher staying light longer yippee!

Today I am posting a card that was made for a friend.  Susan’s new Garden Notes Gerbera Daisy die set was used along with Els van de Burgt Studio Stitched Squares, a couple new Moda Scrap dies and Suzanne Cannon Thinking of You die set.

Here is how the card was completed.

  1.  Finished card base is 6″ X 6″ made by cutting white Soft Finish Cardstock 6″ X 12″ score at 6″ fold on score.  At this point you can decide if you want a top fold or side fold card.
  2. Cut a 6″ X 6″ piece of patterned paper to front of card using Clear Double Sided Adhesive.
  3. Using 2 largest dies from Els Stitched Squares make frame from white Soft Finish Cardstock.  Lay smaller of 2 dies inside larger die centering – tape together with removable tape lay onto cutting machine making sure they do not shift – die cut.  You will be using the frame only, save the inner square to use on another project. Center frame on front of card adhere with Clear Double Sided Adhesive2017-03-03-12-54-44
  4. From black cardstock that has Clear Double Sided Adhesive on back cut “Thinking of You” using A way With Words Thinking of You die.  Adhere to card front.
  5. From green cardstock cut 3 Moda Scrap Leafy Branch 4.
  6. Cut 2 Moda Scrap Leafy Branch 6/Wheat from dark yellow cardstock.
  7. Cut 3 daisies using new Garden Notes Gerbera Daisy dies in colors of your choice.  Cut each size petal layer 2 or 3 times depending on fullness wanted.  Daisies on this card have 3 of each layer.  Using Susan’s Garden 4 pc. Tool Set and Molding Mat shape petals.  Assemble using Kids Choice Glue.    Add a small amount of glue around just the outer edge of daisy centers sprinkle with pollen (Pollen was used here but is optional). Cut Several leaves from medium green color cardstock. .  Shade using crushed olive Distress Ink. Using tool set and Leaf Pad shape leaves.
  8. Arrange branches, daisies and leaves on card until satisfied.  Attach to card using Kids Choice Glue.
