Hi Everyone; it's Ann again with a very pink card. I love pink, so naturally I use pink a lot on my cards, even Halloween and Christmas cards.
Today's card uses the Sue Wilson Canadian Collection - Background die. That is what makes those adorable tiny flowers surrounded by pinprick lines. I cut the panel out of pink paper and adhered it to a white card base. I then cut the smaller die of the two in this set, the center rectangle one, on white paper and layered some pink paper behind it.
The flower I used is the Tattered Lace Michaelmas Daisy. You get four different daisy dies in this set and they all layer perfectly on top of each other. The largest of the daisy dies in this set is approximately 2.5" in diameter. I like big flower dies but if you don't, you can always leave the big one off your flower and use the three smaller ones.
To assemble the flower, I cut three of each of the three largest dies on pink paper and three of the smallest die on yellow paper. I use three of each size because when I adhere them together, I stagger the petals slightly and three seem to fill all the empty spots between petals, making for a fuller daisy.
After the layers of daisy petals are cut out, I roll a stylus around the fronts and backs to give them a little dimension. Then for the yellow center, I manually pull up on some of the top layered petals to give them a messy but fuller look. The green leaves are the Small Leaves by Dee's Distinctively.
