Daisy a Day
Good morning everyone,
How are you? We're fine. We had a great day at the river yesterday. It was 83 degrees and that's saying something mid October in Wisconsin. Today and Sunday are more of the same.
This card was a happy accident. I die cut a daisy with my Big Shot and the Daisy Flowers #2 die and realized that my paper had been off and only cut one of the flowers part way. Duh, right?
Well, when I laid everything down I liked the look of a partial die cut on the page, kind of like when we stamp partially off the page. Sooooooo.... I first ran about an inch of the base card through my crimper leaving it smooth on top and for about a quarter to half inch on the bottom. I then secured a printed window sheet with dots in Night of Navy. I put the large white flower from the Pretties Kit on the dotted window sheet and overlaid a small daisy with a pearl embellishment.
I took my partial daisy and mounted it with a large white brad. THe finishing touch was a Whisper White taffeta ribbon. I love the 3D look of it with all the textures and embellishments. I haven't put a greeting on it but I'm thinking all occasion.
Have a wonderful day!
Much love and joy,
