Daisy Delight, Happy Birthday Gorgeous, Birthday Card, 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! Catalog

I had some time today to play with the "Daisy Delight" set that I have wanted since the first day I saw it in the catalog. I wasn't the only one who wanted it.  When I went to order it on the first of June, it was not available.  It wasn't available until the 26th of June.  But I had plenty of other sets to play with.  So it arrived this week and a couple days later it's in my hands.  I don't know what it is about this flower but I just love the looks of it.  I wish they would have made a smaller one too, but I'm having fun with this one as it is.

I found this layout on Pinterest.  You can see it here.  

The base of this card is the new "Tranquil Tide"colored cardstock. It's a folded half-sheet.  On top of that is a 4" x 5-1/4" of Crumb Cake.  On top of that is a 3-3/4" x 5" piece of Whisper White.  I also cut a 3-1/4" x 3-3/4" piece of the Tranquil Tide colored Decorative Series Paper (DSP) from the Delightful Daisy pack.  This color kind of reminds me of the old Hunter Green color from long ago!!!  It's not quite as dark, as I recall, but it's close!  Anyway, I cut the top part of the DSP and an angle.  I started at 1-5/8" up from the bottom on the left side and cut to the top corner of the right side.  I taped that piece in place on top of the Whisper White piece.  Then I added the "Burlap Ribbon".  

I stamped the flower from the "Daisy Delight" set 3 times using Crumb Cake ink.  I punched all three out and taped them in the centers.  I set the flower on top of the card for placement of the words. The words are from the "Happy Birthday Gorgeous" set. I stamped them using the Tranquil Tide ink pad. I also used the flower for reference for placement of the leaves. I stamped off once for the leaf and inked right from the pad for the outline.  

I set the flower in place using a Dimensional.  Not paying attention to the words. DUH!! But after I saw it on the screen, I moved it. I should have taken a new photo but I wanted you to see that I too make mistakes when I make cards.  The center of the flower has one of those new "Gold Faceted Gems".  

This was a very fun card to make and I plan on playing with this set a bit more before I move on to some of the other sets I have!

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
