Here's a Card, Daisy Medium Punch, Sympathy Card, 2019-2020 Stampin' Up! Catalog

While looking though a tote I had found a card with this layout.  I was looking at my Designer Series Paper (DSP) and thought I had some that would work well together.  So I went ahead with the card.  The original card had a couple of small circles in the center with a brad.  That is how old the card was.  When was the last time brads were popular on cards???  I had saved that card because I loved the layout.  See, when you save stuff you eventually find a use for it. Never get rid of anything!!! LOL

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Daffodil Delight card stock.  This card is folded at the top and opens at the bottom.

On top of the card base will be the 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White card stock. 

I cut a 2-5/8" x 3-1/2" piece of DSP from the Perennial Essence 12" x 12" pack.  Actually I had to cut two, one of one design and one of another complimentary design.  The backside of the DSP didn't match as well as I wanted, so I used two separate pieces of DSP.   Which was okay, I ended up with two cards doing it this way.  Once the rectangles were cut, I lined up the top right corner and the bottom left corner on my cutter and I cut the piece in half diagonally.  I did the same to the other side.  I taped the pieces to the Whisper White piece.  Then I stamped the words.  I waited until I taped the DSP on to add the words. I wanted to get them just right on the card.  Being I was making two, I set the words up on my Stamparatus and stamped the words from the "Here's a Card" set using black Memento ink.

I taped the Whisper White piece to the front of the card. 

Next I stamped out the flower petals using the "Medium Daisy" punch and Whisper White card stock.  I cut two per flower. I glued the centers together.  I punched out a Pear Pizzazz leaf using the "Leaf" punch.  I added a Dimensional to the back of the flower and stuck the stem of the leaf to it and then set the flower in place on the center of the rectangle.  I punched out a 3/8" circle using a scrap piece of Crushed Curry. I was going to use Daffodil Delight card stock but I didn't have any scraps left and I didn't want to use a new piece just for a couple of small circles.  The Crushed Curry blended in well.

I added a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White card stock to the inside and the card was done.

This was a very quick and easy card to make and I just LOVE using this layout.
