Fresh As A Daisy Card

I happened to start fooling around with a scalloped circle punch paper piece that I wasn't using and started cutting down the scallops to the center of the circle.  To my surprise, I had made what looks like a daisy.  If I removed some petals and added a stem, I wound up with a pretty spring card for any occasion.  I happened to use a birthday greeting,  but I think it would work well for a sympathy card.  Here is what I wound up with:

  • Punch 2 or 3 scalloped circles in your favorite color of card stock from the 1 3/4 inch circle scallop punch.  I used So Saffron for the flowers and Delightful Dijon for the card liner.  I burnished the Whisper White card face with So Saffron ink on a dauber to color the edges of the card face.
  • In the center of each flower, burnish with a dauber the matching ink color to provide some definition to the flower.
  • Take the petals and cut in groups to make the flower shape you desire.  I used 5 petals for one flower (at the top), four petals for the middle flower, and three petals for the last flower.
  • I used a scrap piece of paper (Old Olive) to cut some stems by hand.  Just took the scissors and cut!  
  • Also hand cut the stem / flower base by making a "U" shape to attach the flower to the stem.
  • Added the "Happy Birthday" greeting from "Butterfly Basics" and stamped it in Delightful Dijon.
This is a very easy card to make and I think you'll be happy with the results!  Thanks for taking a me with questions or comments!  For more ideas, click on my links to Facebook and my Stampin' Up web page to the right of this post.

Happy Stamping!
