This weeks Global Design Project is a fun sketch. See how our designers used the sketch, then create your own design, and hang it in our gallery.
I began with a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″, layered with Fresh As a Daisy Designer Paper in Boho Blue, 5 1/4″ X 4″. The next layer is Fresh As A Daisy Designer Paper in Copper Clay, 5 1/4″ X 2 1/2. The top layer is patterned, Fresh As A daisy Designer Paper, 4 1/2″ X 3 1/4″, bordered with Copper Clay, 3 5/8″ X 4 5/8″.
Prior to gluing the layers together, I used a Basics 3D Embossing Folder to give texture to the patterned daisies. Dots make me happy!
This dotted embossing folder is not in the catalog, but is an Online Exclusive in a package of three embossing folders. You can see the details in my Product List below.
To make the garden of daisies come alive, I added two butterflies from the Meadow Dies Set. The entire die set is wonderful, and I love the butterflies, simply die-cut from Basic White Cardstock. Can you see the impressions on the wings?
To complete the sketch, I used a sentiment from the Sending Smiles Stamp Set. I stamped, “sunshine to brighten your day,” in Copper Clay Ink, used a Sending Die for cutting, and attached it with Dimensionals.
