Daisy Delight, Hardwood, Background Bits, Birthday Card

While surfing the net (because I have nothing better to do with my time!!! LOL) I found this fun "Daisy Delight" card made by Wendy at Wendy's Little Inklings.  You can see her card here.  

This is a very simple and quick card to make.  The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Crumb Cake.  I didn't ready what Wendy used but this is how I made the card.

On top of the base is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White card stock with the "Hardwood" image stamped using Crumb Cake ink.  I prefer to cut my card stock to fit after I've stamped it. I do this for two reasons.  One, so I can trim away any edges that may not have stamped nicely and two, just in case I ruin it I hadn't wasted anytime trimming it.  LOL

The stems were then stamped using Garden Green ink.  The flowers were punched out using Daffodil Delight card stock. I punched out four pieces.  Tape two together to form a fuller flower.  For the center of the flowers I used the Clear Faceted Gems.  I colored them in using a brown Sharpie marker.  I set the flowers in place using Dimensionals.

The words are from the "Background Bits" set.  They were stamped on a 7/8" x 4" piece of card stock. I did punch the ribbon end first before I stamped the words.  I think that strip could have been a little bit thinner but it works just like it is.  Before I set that strip in place, I added a trimmed piece of the burlap ribbon. I taped it to the back of that strip and then I taped the two pieces in place.  I trimmed the left edge after I taped the piece down.  I taped the Whisper White layer to the Crumb Cake card base and it was done!!  I told you it was simple and quick!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

Love this card, Amy, with the woodgrain background and bit of burlap. I have the daisy punch and love its simplicity. Thanks for your inspiration. Enjoy your day!
