Cheerful Daisies, Countryside Inn, Birthday Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I'm going to share a card with you that I found on Pinterest. It was posted by one of my favorite card makers (I have so many) Claire Daly. You can see her card here. I was looking for a card to make using the "Countryside Inn" Designer Series Paper and her card popped up on Pinterest. So I clicked on the card and was directed to her blog. I was thrilled to find this card and started right in making it.

Here's how I made the card. The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Night of Navy card stock. The card opens on the right and the fold is on the left.

My DSP was cut at 3-3/4" wide so I had to make the length 5".  I taped it in place on the front of the card. I also cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White card stock and taped it to the inside. 

I didn't have the die that was used for the vellum piece, so I just took the largest circle die from the "Layering Circles" set and cut my piece. I glued it on top of the DSP, not quite centered, there's more on the upper part of the card than the bottom.

Now came time to die cut the flowers. They are from the "Cheerful Daisies" bundle and were die cut from Basic White card stock. I took the flower center stamp and colored the centers of the flowers using Crushed Curry ink. Then the top detailed layers of the flowers were glued in place. The flowers are all joined together and they are left joined but the leaves that were attached were snipped off and discarded. 

The branch ferny images were die cut using Balmy Blue card stock. I needed 4 of them.

The words are from the same "Cheerful Daisies" set and were stamped on a scrap piece of Basic White card stock using Night of Navy ink. They were die cut using the die from the same bundle.

Now it's time to assemble the card. The flowers were set in place using Dimensionals. I didn't press down on them right away in case I needed to lift one up to slip the ferny things under it. I did dip the ends of the ferny pieces in glue before I slipped them under the flowers.

The words were set in place using Dimensionals and crystal rhinestones were added and the card was done.

This was a fun card to make and I was thrilled to have been able to use the DSP that I was gifted with.

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

Another beautiful card. What die set has the "ferny" die that you used?

The ferny die is in the same "Cheerful Daisies" bundle.
