Dandelion Wishes, Daisy Get Well Card

I thought I would make a get well card today and I found some pretty greet paper on the backside of the tulips images in the "Pleased as Punch" 12" x 12" Designer Series Paper (DSP) pack.

The base of my card is a half-sheet of Whisper White card stock.  This card opens on the right and is folded on the left.  

I die cut the DSP using the second largest "Stitched Rectangle Framelits" dies.  I taped it on top of the card base.  Centering it as much as I could.

Next I stamped the words from the "Dandelion Wishes" set using black Memento ink. I set it up in my Stamparatus in case I didn't get it dark enough.  And lo and behold, I did not get it dark enough. I ended up stamping it twice.  I love the Stamparatus.  It allows me to make better cards. My ink is as dark as I want it to be. It's nice and solid with no blotchy spots.  It gives my cards a more professional look.

I punched out two of each size of the Daisies. I used the large and the medium daisy punches and Whisper White card stock.

I curled the petals and then I glued them together. I opted for glue because it gives me some extra seconds to move the pieces around to get them to line up and fill in.  Once it was all glued and all set in place, I pressed the center in the palm of my hand to get the center to be a bit more indented which allowed the petals to pop up more.  I set the flower in place using two small glue dots.  One large one would do but that would have meant that I would have had to get up and go around my worktable to get them!!  Oh my! SO lazy!!!  LOL

I added the flower center using the "Perennial Essence Floral Centers". You get 18 of them in a container and of course I had to buy two containers and now I have a bunch of flower centers and they expire in 20 days!!!  I'm sure I will use them on other cards to sell at the craft fairs once they start up again next year.  I really doubt I will participate in one this year.  The flower center has it's own sticky piece.  I removed the backing and I set the flower center in place.  And the card was done.

This is a super quick and easy card to make.  I like the layout and I may make more, I do have more DSP to use up because that retires in 20 days too!

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
