Okay, I have just one more to show you!
I couldn’t let go. I had some punched daisies on my desk, and I wondered how it would look with the gatefold cards I have been making. Since I had to make a belly band with ribbon on the mermaid card, I thought, why not integrate that into the design of the card?
Stamp: Daisy Lane, Botanical Bliss
Ink: VersaMark, Blushing Bride
Paper: Terracotta Tile, Whisper White, Blushing Bride, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Early Espresso
Accessories: Stitched Nested Labels dies, Daisy punch, Medium Daisy punch, 1-1/8″ scallop circle punch, 1/2″ circle punch, 1-1/2″ circle punch, White embossing powder, Terracotta Tile scalloped linen ribbon
Isn’t that too fun? I really love the look of the daisy punches with the gingham pattern.
By the way, I realized I didn’t mention the size of the label I am using. It’s the third largest label. The sentiment is two sizes down.
Each size of daisy is punched twice. The petals of the larger daisy is gently curled under, while the smaller daisy is curled upward. (It’s also best to do this BEFORE gluing the two sizes together…)
I snipped the 1-1/8″ scallop circle in between each scallop, making sure not to go all the way to the center. What’s neat is that the “petals” will naturally fluff themselves.
The center of the daisy is made with a 1/2″ circle of Early Espresso. I pressed from the back side with the blunt end of my bone folder in to my Stampin’ mat. This will make it puffy. Add it to the center of the daisy with a dimensional, and it keeps its dimension.
To create the belly band, I wrapped the Terracotta Tile scalloped linen ribbon around the card, and adhered the ends to a 1-1/2″ circle. Put a couple of dimensionals on top, and add the finished daisy.
The sentiment for the card is heat-embossed in white onto Crumb Cake cardstock.
The background is stamped with Blushing Bride ink, using stamps from Botanical Bliss. I love mixing and matching stamp sets for cards.
I remembered to stamp the inside of the card, too.
It opens the same way as all of the other cards; I just rotated the card to show it works in the landscape orientation, too.
