Delightful Daisy, Love What You Do, Thank You Card, 2018-2019 Stampin' Up! Catalog

I found a fun card on Pinterest but I didn't have the flower stamp, so I improvised! I loved the colors and especially the layout.  And this is what I did with it.

The base of this card is a folded half-sheet of Rich Razzleberry card stock.  On top of that and to the left is a 3-1/2" x 3-3/4" piece of Whisper White card stock.  It was set in place about 1/2" from the left side.

The "Share What You Love" Specialty Decorative Series Paper (SDSP) was cut 1-3/4" x 4-1/4".  I punched the ends and then measuring from the bottom tip to the bottom tip it now measures 4-1/8".  I wrapped some white Baker's Twine around it three times and tied a bow. I cut a 1" x 4" piece of Whisper White card stock punched the ends too.  This piece now measures from tip to tip 3-1/8" or very close to that. It doesn't need to be exact.  I stamped the words from the "Love What You Do" set using Rich Razzleberry ink.  The words from the "Delightful Daisy" set were just too big for that strip.  

Next I stamped the flower image from the "Delightful Daisy" set. I made and punched out two of them. I taped them together in the center.  I added a faceted gem to the center of the flower, it was one of the amber colored ones.  I punched three leaves form the triple leaf punch using Old Olive card stock.  And I wound some gold thread about about 6 or 7 times around my fingers and secured them with a glue dot.  

To assemble the card I taped the white piece on the left side.  Then I taped the SDSP on.  The tip on the right is about 1/2" from the edge of the side of the card.  I taped the flower in place but I only taped the bottom part of the flower. I had curled the top petals but not the bottom.  I tucked in two of the triple leaf pieces on the top and one on the bottom. I just used snail to hold them in place.  I added the gold thread. The glue dot that was holding it together was enough to set it in place behind the flower.  The word piece was set in place with Dimensionals and that was it.

I thought it was such a fun layout and it was very easy to make too.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
