Cheerful Daisies, Days to Remember, Birthday Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. I placed my Stampin' Up! order and now we wait! I'd like to add patiently but I'm never patient when it comes to my orders. So in the meantime I will play with what I have. Isn't it odd that what I have was perfectly fine until the new catalog came out!  LOL  Anyway, today I have a quick and easy card to share with you.  The "Cheerful Daisies" set is in the new catalog and surprisingly so, the Designer Series Paper "Fresh as a Daisy" is in it too.  DSP doesn't usually carry over and I'm thrilled that it did. Hope to see more of that in the future. So onto my card. I found it on Pinterest and I changed it a little. You can see the original card here. 

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. It 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 textured it using the "Distressed Tile" embossing folder. I glued that to the front of the card.

The DSP is from the "Cheerful Daisies" set and was cut at 4" x 1-1/2". I glued that to the front of the card about 1-1/2" from the bottom edge of the card. 

I die cut the flowers using Basic White card stock. I colored the center with Daffodil Delight and Crushed Curry ink using a sponge dauber. I added a little bit of glue to hold down the detailed pieces.

The leaves were removed from the flowers after die cutting and colored using my light Highland Heather Blends pen. I was going to cut them using Highland Heather card stock but I didn't want that look, I wanted the look of some light and dark areas on it from coloring.  

I die cut the largest square from the "Stylish Shapes" set and glued it to the front of the card, lining it up equally on the right and left and about 1" up from the bottom of the card.

The flowers were added next using Dimensionals. The leaves were added with a little bit of glue.

The words are from the "Days to Remember" set and were stamped using black Memento ink on a scrap piece of Basic White card stock. They were punched out using the "Double Oval" punch. Using the same punch I punched out the Highland Heather scalloped oval. I taped the two ovals together and set them in place on the front of the card using Dimensionals. And the card was done.

I think it's such a pretty card, I'm very fond of the Highland Heather color and I think it fit perfectly with this layout.

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

Such a pretty card! I love the daisies, and also the embossed background. And such lovely colors, too.
