Daisy Lane, Here's a Card, Fall Birthday Card

Having the granddaughters over puts a damper on stamping time, but oh so worth it. And needless to say, I didn't have time to make a card yesterday. I do try to make one every day but some days I just can't.  But today I had some time, so this is what I came up with. I wanted to lean more towards the fall colors.  Even though it was 85 here in Minnesota today.  A bit too hot for the middle of September! And it's supposed to be in the 80's all week.  I will be staying indoors for most of the week.  I'm done melting for the year!  And now that the weather forecast is over, onto my card.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock. This card is folded at the top and opens at the bottom. I stamped the Buffalo Plaid image using Pumpkin Pie ink.  I set up the stamp in my Stamparatus so I could ink it as many times as needed to get the best looking image.  I cut the stamped piece at 1-3/4" x 5-1/2".  I cut a 2" x 5-1/2" piece of Pumpkin Pie card stock for the layer.  I taped the two pieces together and I taped the layers to the card base 3/4" from the top of the card. 

I stamped two daisies from the "Daisy Lane" set using Pumpkin Pie ink.  I punched them out using the large "Daisy" punch.  I glued the center of one of the flowers and pressed the other flower on top, lining up the petals so they were opposite the other petals.  I punched out two leave using Mossy Meadow card stock and the "Leaf" punch.  

I stamped the words from the "Here's a Card" set using black Memento ink.  

I set the flower on top of the Buffalo Plaid piece so I could see where I wanted to place the leaves. I taped the stem of the leaves in place.  Then I added Dimensionals to the back of the flower and I set it in place on top of the leaf stems.

And that was it.  A super quick and easy card to make. And a fallish looking one too!

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
