Now I just love daisies, and this new set is just fantastic!! There are so many uses for it from scrap booking, cards, home decor, etc to just name a few. For my project today, I went with a simple card so I could use it for Mother's Day for a friends mom whom I call my "adopted mother". Actually, I have two of them.
I started out by stamping my main image, and the additional ladybug daisy, in memento tuxedo black onto MFP snow storm smooth card stock before coloring with prismacolor markers then cutting out the single flower for popping up later. As I layered the main image, I made sure to round off the corners by using a corner rounder punch so they would match the stamped die cut Tim Holtz ornamental layer, then added some Making Memories white baby brads. For the card, I stamped the background using Tim Holtz scattered straw distress ink and then stippled the outside edges of the card. The die cut layer is stamped using Tim Holtz tattered rose distress ink before stippling the edges of it as well then popping up the layered daisy trio using dimensionals.
My final touches are some black/white gingham ribbon with a fairy charm tied up with thread and the cut out ladybug daisy popping it up using pop dots and micro pop dots with ice stickles in the middle. My card also fits the Moxie Fab Gingham Challenge.
Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great day and don't forget to stop by the rest of the design teams blogs and leave some love for a chance to win today's featured set.
