Sending a smile your way!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a fun and cheerful card that’s sure to put a smile on someone’s face! The sentiment on the card front tells them to, right?? Lol When I first started out creating this card, I was bound and determined to find a stamp set that I could use with the Mosaic Mood Designer Series Paper. So, I decided to keep it kind of simple, but with the light and flowery theme of the design that I chose. I really liked how pairing it with the Daisy Lane stamp set and Medium Daisy Punch turned out, keeping with the color combination of the DSP.

The base layer is this design from the Mosaic Mood DSP, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”:

For the card front, you will need:

1. Stamp the sentiment in Early Espresso ink on Very Vanilla cardstock and cut out with the second smallest Layering Circle Die. You will also need to use the third smallest Layering Circle Die to cut out Mint Macaron cardstock and the second smallest circle Stitched Shape Die out of Early Espresso cardstock. These will be layered under the sentiment.

2. Enough Mint Macaron Textile Ribbon to tie into a bow around the DSP base layer.

3. Two of the Perennial Essence Floral Centers.

4. On So Saffron cardstock, use the smaller daisy stamp with Crushed Curry ink to stamp six images and punch out with the coordinating Medium Daisy Punch. 

You will be layering three of the daisies punched pieces together for one daisy. I kept the bottom piece flat, the second piece slightly curled the ends with my bone folder, and the top layer curled a bit more with my bone folder. These are adhered/layered using liquid glue:

To assemble the front, tie the ribbon into a bow around the middle of the DSP, adhere the layered sentiment with mini dimensionals over the ribbon, and adhered the daisies with mini dimensionals off to the side of the sentiment:

This completed piece is adhered to a Mint Macaron cardstock card base, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, and scored at 5 ½”:

For the inside, cut a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, stamp the sentiment in Early Espresso ink, the daisies in Crushed Curry ink, and adhere a ¾” x 4” strip of coordinating DSP along the bottom:

Not only do I love the colors of this card, but how the daisies stand out with “curling” the petal ends! Just remember that if you are mailing this card, include a protective piece of printer paper or cardstock (4 ¼” x 5 ½”) over the top when you place the card in the envelope. I always do this when I have embellishments, it will give an extra layer so those parts that are poking up don’t get caught and/or the envelope torn from the mail machines. We want our cards arriving in one piece!!
