Daisy Lane, Wonderful Moments, Tasteful Background Dies, Birthday Card

I found a fun card on the net that used the "Tasteful Background" dies.  I couldn't get the words to work on the card so I turned it 180 degrees and I had room to work.  You can see the original card here.  

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Coastal Cabana card stock.  On top of that is a 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" piece of Whisper White card stock that I die cut with the "Tasteful Background" die and then textured with the "Subtle" embossing folder.  Once you use that folder your paper becomes very flimsy.  So when I attached it to the card base I used a lot of Dimensionals.

I stamped the daisy using the small daisy image "Daisy Lane" set on Whisper White card stock using Coastal Cabana ink.  I punched it out using the medium daisy punch.  I made two and taped them together in the center.  Then I curled the ends using my bone folder.  And then I put the flower in the palm of my hand and pressed the center using the top end of my "Fine Tip" glue bottle.  A pencil will work too.  This made the center concave and let the leaves curl more naturally. 

I punched out two Pear Pizzazz leaves using the "Leaf" punch. I cut the ends off and then taped them in place under the flower petals.

The words are from the "Wonderful Moments" set. I stamped them using black Memento ink.  I punched them out using the "Classic Label" punch.  I set them in place using Dimensionals.

I added a medium size gold Faceted Gem to the center of the flower and a few gold sequins around the card front.

This was a very fun card to make. If I were to make another one, I think I would center the die cut more.  But this worked out and I'm happy with what I'm seeing!

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
