Sunny Day Daisies

Hello! I just LOVED creating this card! No stamps, no ink, no coloring....simply dies, dies, dies. This was the criteria for this week's challenge at Joan's Touch.

I love yellow and white paired together, with a touch of black. To me, these colors are so warm and happy and inviting. So these are the colors I chose for my project.

I began with making my card base in black and layered it with white. Next, I die cut all my elements. I used a die from Marianne Creatables Anja's Large Oval die set to cut the large frame in yellow. Following this, I used 2 dies from Marianne Creatables Anja's Vintage Frame to create the center of the large yellow frame, using one die to cut the white center frame and another die to cut the yellow lattice center. I arranged these elements and adhered them together and then popped them on the base card with dimensionals.

The flowers (or daisies as I refer to them) were cut using HFC Delicate Asters dies. I didn't have a circle die small enough for the centers of the daisies so I improvised by using a die from Spellbinders A2 Locking Loops (where there's a will, there's a way). And finally, the leaf sprigs were cut using Poppy Stamps Leafy Sprig die. Both flowers and the leafy sprigs were attached to the yellow frame with dimensionals. 

I hope you enjoyed this post. I would love if you would become a follower of my blog. You will always know when a new project has been posted.
