Last week, one of my blog posts featured a make ‘n take card using the Daisy Lane stamp set. Today, the project is a Daisy Lane “stepped up” card. As you see, I have added some pizzazz to the basic card design. It’s easy to take a simple card and make it a “stepped up” card with just a few extra embellishments. You can see the original simple stamping card design here.
The colors and stamping are the same as in the Simple Stamping with Daisy Lane card details. So, refer to the link to review the general instructions and project materials.
To create the additional center on the daisy, punch a 1″ circle of Melon Mambo cardstock for each daisy. With paper snips, cut small snips toward the center of the circle punch, leaving a circle in the middle approximately 1/4″ diameter. Use eraser end of a pencil or the end of the Take Your Pick, press onto the circle center so that the circle cups and the snips separate. With mini glue dots, attach to the daisy center and add the Perennial Essence Floral Centers to each.
Cut a piece of 3-3/4″ piece of Whisper White Flax Ribbon. Snip between threads on each end and slightly fray. Attach to card using Tear & Tape adhesive. Refer to photo for approximate placement.
To the sentiment label, add pearl white sequins from the Basic Adhesive Backed Sequins package. Place one on each side of the label. In the center of each, add a Basic Rhinestone Jewel.
For the bow, pull threads from a piece of the flax ribbon. Use two of the threads to tie into a bow.
See how easy it is to “step up” a card design by adding a few embellishments?
The final make ‘n take card from the Open House utilizes simple stamping with the Daisy Lane Bundle. Since the group was large, it was necessary to have projects without a lot of detail and that would be appropriate for all stamping levels. The Daisy Lane stamp set and coordinating Medium Daisy Punch were perfect! Instead of layering cardstock for a card base, the Gold Foil-Edged Cards and Envelopes are used. The foil edge adds pizzazz to the project.
Stamp the flower stems directly onto the Gold Foil-Edged Card using Granny Apple Green Classic Ink Pad.
Use Melon Mambo Classic Ink Pad to stamp 4 medium daisy petal flowers onto Whisper White cardstock. With the Medium Daisy Punch, punch the stamped daisy flowers.
To create the flowers, layer one daisy atop the other. Turn the top daisy so that the petals fill the gap in the petals of the bottom daisy. Attach the top daisy to the bottom daisy using mini glue dots.
Attach the daisies to the stamped flower stems using mini-glue dots. Place one of the daisies slightly lower on the stem as seen in the card photo.
