Handmade Daisies Card


Sometimes when I make cards, I have an idea in my head, I make the card and mmmm it is Ok but nothing startling, and sometimes you make the card, and its wow that turned out better than I thought!  Well this card is a bit like that, I think it turned out better than I saw it in my head, I think it is the blue and yellow together!

I started by making daisies in a range of colours, which if you make them with 120 - 160gsm card they turn out to be really quite strong for your cards.


I decided to make a variety of cards with different colour combinations, so I started off with sponging some stitched rectangles with Distress inks in a variety of colours that complimented the daisies I had made. 


I set to and made one on video and then some other colour combinations.




Here is the video on how I made them.


The Supplies I have used to make these cards are:
Couture creations Intricutz die called 'Falling blossoms' 
(but you could use any daisy dies if they have a variety of sizes)
Elizabeth crafts Designs 730 Curvy leaves dies
Cheery Lynn Sweet Christine die strip
Simon Says Stamps stitched rectangle dies
Paper Xtra sentiment stamp set
Altenew Crisp Inks: Arctic, Carribean Sea, Persian Blue, Soft Lilac, Lavendar Fields, Deep Iris.
Distress Inks: Salty Ocean, Mermaid Lagoon, Blueprint Scetch, Wilted Violet, Squeezed lemonade & picked raspberry.
Ranger blending tool and sponges
Tsukineko Sponge dauber
Scraps of white 160gsm card
Scraps of pink, blue, mauve & yellow card
Flat back pearls in gold, pink, blue and mauve
Crystal Dazzlers in 13mm & 9mm
Fun Foam
Cosmic Shimmer dries clear glue
Quilled precision applicator bottle
Versafine Onyx black ink
Ranger clear embossing powder
Versamark Watermark ink
Ranger Silver embossing powder

I hope you enjoyed the video and maybe got inspired to make some of these daisies and smaller flowers.  As I said they are surprisingly strong once made, and are so pretty on a card.

Happy Card making!
