Happy Thursday to you! Today’s card is my second as a Seize the Birthday Party Guest Designer. The theme, or “Toppings,” for the next two weeks is “rainbow,” so I created whimsical, rainbow, daisies.
I began by using Stampin’ Blends to color a rainbow across Whisper White Cardstock. I used these colors, in this order: Light Poppy Parade, Light Pumpkin Pie, Light Daffodil Delight, Light Old Olive, Dark Pool Party, and Light Highland Heather. They are in my Product List below. Then, I used the Medium Daisy Punch to cut six daisies, moving across my colored rainbow.
Next, I shaped the petals with my Bone Folder. It’s not a tool I mention often, but it really comes in handy.
TIP: Hold the daisy firmly in the center with one hand. With the other hand, gently curl the petals with the Bone Folder in a downward motion.
After curling, glue two petal rounds together at the the center. Use the 1/2″ Circle Punch to create the centers from Designer Series Paper. This dot has retired, but you can use your imagination.
I wanted my whimsical daisies to stand out against their background, and chose a Thick Whisper White card base with a layer of Whisper White cardstock. Texture was added with an Friendly Silhouettes die-cut of foliage across the bottom.
All that remained was the sentiment, “Birthday Wishes,” (Birthday Wishes Stamp set) that I stamped in Memento Black Ink.
Thank you for visiting! I’m looking forward to seeing your birthday cards in the Seize the Birthday Gallery!
