The daisy makes such a happy card! And this one is quick and easy. I started with a piece of lovely lipstick (5 1/4" x 4") and using the larger of the two daisy punches I punched a full daisy just left of center. Then using the smaller punch I punched several more, making sure that one of the daisies was partially "off the page." I saved the punched out daisies to use on the inside or on the envelope.
Next, adhere your punched piece to a card base of whisper white thick card stock. I used my 3/4 inch and 1/2 inch punch to make centers of the daisies. For this card, I used Pineapple Punch card stock. By the way, both the Lovely Lipstick and Pineapple Punch card stock are retiring soon.
Lastly, I stamped a greeting and cut it out with one of the stitched rectangle dies. I did put one of the punched daisies inside the card as well.
I hope you'll give this technique a try! Maybe you have another punch that would leave a pretty negative....I think I have a leaf punch that would work! I might just have to try it!
You can see all the products I used below! Don't forget there are still some great Last Chance deals available in my online store.
Happy Chat'n'Crafting to you!
I absolutely love the Painted Poppies Designer series paper! But, sometimes the Designer Series Papers are so pretty that I hate to glue one side to another piece of paper! How can you choose? Well, with this card design you won't have to choose. You can see both sides.
Here's a video that shows you how to cut it. Then see the cutting recipe below!
Here are the cutting dimensions for the paper that I used.
Poppy Parade: 6 3/4" x 4 1/4", score at 5 1/2" on the long side
Peaceful Poppy DSP: 4 3/4" x 4 1/4"
Whisper White mat for inside: 5 1/4" x 4"
Whisper white scrap for sentiment
If you love this Peaceful Poppies Designer Series paper you will want to get it soon! It retires on June 2 (or sooner, if it sells out!). You can see all of the supplies I used here....
I hope you will give this card design a try!
I'm going to go show off more of my DSP!

This cute little card is quick and easy! Just add an extra cut on your trimmer and you're all set! I started with a card base that measured 4 1/4 x 11 1/2 inches and scored it at 5 1/2 inches. Then I cut off 1 3/4 inches from the top flap of the card base. This makes the top smaller than the back flap and lets you see the DSP adhered to the inside even when the card is closed. Fancy, right?
Here are the dimensions I used for the other pieces:
Daffodil Delight 3 1/2 " x 4", embossed with Parisian Flourish EF
Pool Party Scrap: cut with Stitched Nested Label die to fit sentiment
Bird Ballad DSP: 2" x 4" piece
Whisper White: 5 1/4" x 4"
Here are all the supplies I used to create this card! Click on the picture for more information.
The Bird Ballad DSP and Leaf Punch will be available only until June 2 (or as long as supplies last!) as they are retiring!
