Daffodil Delight Patterned Paper: 3-1/2″ x 4″
Honestly, I know nothing about flowers beyond that some of them are pretty. There are very few varieties that I can identify and the only flowers we have around our house are ones that someone else planted and I don’t touch them because if I did, they would die.
So I’ll stick to the paper variety like the pretty daisies in the Daisy Lane stamp set from Stampin’ Up!® I love a stamp image that has a coordinating punch and that’s exactly what’s going on with this daisy card. The Medium Daisy punch will perfectly punch out your stamped daisies.
Card Making Tips:
- Stamp 2 of the smaller daisies from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Daffodil Delight ink and 1 in Jet Black StazOn ink on Daffodil Delight card stock. Punch out all 3 with the Medium Daisy Punch, then cut out the center of the black daisy with Paper Snips.
- Assemble the daisy and attach it to the card by adding a glue dot to the back of each daisy piece.
- Place the patterned paper on white card stock to see where the placement of “Smile” should be, but stamp BEFORE you tape your paper down. That way if you make a mistake or get a smudge you can flip your card stock over and try again!
- Wondering how to get perfect placement of the word “Smile”? I love my Stamp-a-ma-jig! It does take a bit of practice until you remember how to use it, but it helps me put my stamped images exactly where I want them EVERY TIME!! Here’s a how-to use the Stamp-a-ma-jig video.
- Don’t forget to decorate the inside of your card! I just stamped a small daisy in the corner and used my Stamp-a-ma-jig again to make sure that the middles lined up.
The inspiration for this card came from these butterfly cards.
