Daisy Anniversary


Hi, I've seen quite a few folded daisy cards on blogs over the past little while, including Stamping with Loll  and  Birgit's blog, and I really wanted to have a go at making one.

I recently discovered Selma's blog, she makes the most amazing paper flowers. I've made this card using her daisy tutorial which you'll find here. It's very easy to follow. I didn't have a daisy die but I have an EK Success punch which punches out half a daisy. It was $2.50 at the craft show I went to recently and I thought it was so cheap!.Mind you, it does only cut out half the daisy, which I don't think I registered at the time!
I punched out 2 daisy halves for each flower, shaped them, then glued them together. I followed Selma's tip of using part of the tiny oval scallop die to create the flower centre and to cover it with flower soft.'

My stems are cut from the Simon Says Stamp Fresh Daisies die.

I'm going to link up to the challenge at Addicted to CAS where they are celebrating their first anniversary! Congratulations, hope there are many more to come!

Addicted to Stamps & More has an Anything Goes challenge.

I used heaps of snippets punching my daisies and cutting my stems, so I'm visiting the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.

Materials used: EK Success punch; Spellbinders scalloped oval, oval & floral oval dies: Simon Says Stamp fresh Daisies die; distress ink; flower soft; sentiment sticker, ribbon & bling from stash.

Thanks for visiting :)
