Dainty Delight, Go To Greetings, Thank You Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have a fun card to share with you that I found on Pinterest. You can see the original card here. There is no link to where it came from so there are no instructions to follow. Please read on to see how I made the card. I did make a few little changes.

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

I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White card stock and taped it to the inside of the card.

On the front I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Mossy Meadow card stock and a 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" piece of Basic White card stock. I took that Basic White card stock piece and textured it using the "Painted Texture" embossing folder. I glued the Basic White piece to the Mossy Meadow piece and then I taped that to the front of the card.

Next I die cut the stitched circle using the largest die from the "Stylish Shapes" die set.

The stems were die cut next. They are from the "Dainty Delight" bundle. I used Mossy Meadow for them. I had actually cut two but found out that once the piece on the left was cut the piece on the right is the rest of that long stem. Do you smell a future card using that stem?  LOL I glued the stems to the circle. I added a dot of glue to each leaf and hoped for the best!  It worked!

Then the flowers were die cut. I used Lemon Lolly card stock for the flowers. On my card I doubled up on the daisies so they looked fuller. I glued the daisies together and then using another dot of glue I set them in place on the stems. The double flowers were not cut apart and were set in place with a dot of glue under each one.

The center of the daisies were colored in using my light Pumpkin Pie Blends pen and the smaller daisies were colored using the dark Mossy Meadow pen. I had die cut those pieces at the same time I die cut the flowers. After gluing the Mossy Meadow pieces in on the half daisies, I used the finer point of the Blends pen and let it bleed a little above the piece to give it a fuzzy more real look.

And for the flowers that are connected, I took the light Pumpkin Pie Blends pen and just dew in dots on each one and that was it for the flowers. Dimensionals were added to the back and the circle was set in place on the front of the card.

A white ribbon (retired) bow was tied and glued to the bottom of the circle and it covered the ends of the flower stems. 

The words are from the "Go To Greetings" set and were stamped using black Memento ink on a scrap piece of Basic White card stock.. I punched them out using the "Double Oval" punch and the Basic White scalloped oval was made using the same punch. The two pieces were taped together, Dimensionals were added to the back and the piece was set in place on the front of the card.  And the card was done.

Isn't it pretty? I had a lot of fun making this card, even though there was a lot of die cutting.  But SO worth it!

Thank you SO very much for stopping in to see today's thank you card,

Beautiful card. I love the hello flowers with the orange. And the simple placement of the bow makes it look like a real bouquet. Great job

Such a beautiful card!!!! Would you consider doing a video so I can see how you cut the stems and how you did the "bleeding" on the half daisies?? Beautiful card!!

I'm sorry. I don't do videos. I do not have the editing software for something like that. The stem is just one of the dies in the set and the bleed is done by sitting the marker on the card stock and allowing it to flow/bleed. Sorry I can't be of further help there.
