Daisy Delight, Delightful Daisy, Happy Birthday Gorgeous, Birthday Card, Recessed Panel Technique

Yesterday I mentioned that I was going to try another "Recessed Panel" technique card and see if I could just use a strip of Decorative Series Paper (DSP) instead if using the whole 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" piece.  No, I was not able to do it. Though I think if you cut the 12" x 12" DSP into diagonal strips it might work.  I didn't cut mine because I don't plan on making another one of these for a while. I do like making them and I find them very easy to make but I need to move on!

This card was easier than the one I made yesterday. There is no fussy cutting here at all.

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock.  On top of that is the 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" piece of Delightful Daisy DSP. 

For the front pieces I took a 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" piece of Daffodil Delight and Whisper White card stock and cut them both at the same time.  For the top piece, I marked it on the left at 3/4" and on the right side I marked it at 3". For the bottom part, I marked it at 1-1/8".  I cut the two colors at the same time.  The 1-1/8" side was cut all the way to the bottom right corner tip.  Next I took the Whisper White pieces and I cut 1/8" off the inside edge.  I taped the two pieces together.  I stamped the words using the "Happy Birthday, Gorgeous" set and Night of Navy ink.  I set those two panels in place using Dimensionals.

I punched out two daisy pieces and taped the centers together.  I stamped and punched one "Daisy Delight" flower using Old Olive card stock and ink.  I cut a few petals to use as leaves.  

The center of the flower was stamped using Chocolate Chip ink.  I punched it out with the 3/4" circle punch and set it in place using a Dimensional.  I set the flower in place using Dimensionals on the outer petals.  I attached the leaf petals afterwards using snail tape.  I added a little Wink of Stella to the tips of the flowers and leaves, and to the center part as well.

And that was it!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
