Grassy Grove, "Fresh as a Daisy, Darling Details, Birthday Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello! I'm glad you stopped in to see today's card. Please read on to see how I made it.

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Boho Blue card stock. I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White card stock and taped it to the inside. 

Next I took the pretty background from the "Fresh as a Daisy" 12" x 12" package of Designer Series Paper (DSP).  This piece was cut from a sheet that has quite a few images on it.  I wasn't sure what to do with this piece. I loved the looks of it but didn't know where I was going to go with it. I took out my "Grassy Grove" bundle and was going to die cut a Basic Black forest piece but it didn't quite fit with the background DSP. It needed to be a dark background like it was night out for the front to be black. So I took a piece of Crumb Cake card stock that measured 4" x 5-1/4" and die cut the piece from the "Grassy Grove" bundle. Now foreground was lighter. I was going to sponge on some green in the trees, brown for the trunks and maybe some more green for the grass but I decided to leave it. 

I added some glue to the die cut piece and stuck it to the DSP. Then I taped that to the card base. I was going to add a 4-1/8" x 5-3/8" piece of Basic White behind the Crumb Cake/DSP layer but I thought the Boho Blue in the sky would pop better without it.

The words are from the "Darling Details" set and were stamped using Boho Blue ink. I punched them out using the "Double Oval" punch. I also punched out the scalloped oval from the same punch using Boho Blue card stock. I taped the ovals together. Dimensionals were added to the back and the piece was set in place on the front of the card.

I think this would make a great masculine card. This would also make a nice sympathy card too. It's got a calm feel to it.

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop in and see today's birthday card,

Great way to use that piece from Fresh as a Daisy! I'm still debating on how to use that piece. It does provide a calming scene.
