Delicate Daisy Birthday Card


I don't think there is a prettier die for making a card base than this Sue Wilson Ornate Pierced Rectangles die.  Since the biggest die in the set is more than 6" long,  I had to cut two and hinge them together for the card base.  The ivory background is what the card base is made out of.




On top of the card base, I adhered the white delicate frame then added the Tutti Designs words Happy and Birthday.  The flower is the Sue Wilson Delicate Daisies Complete Petals.  Here is how I made my flower to give it more dimension:




Cut three of each sized petal in the set.  Chose two petal sizes that layer well together.  Crimp the ends of each petal with tweezers, pinching the paper up against the tweezers.  Do this for all the petals.



Adhere the three biggest petals together with glue, staggering them so they don't line up on top of other petals.  Then adhere the 3 smaller sized petals, also staggering them for more fullness.

Use a piece of foam or other dimensional adhesive between the two layers.




Here's the list of products used:

Sue Wilson Ornate Pierced Rectangles, Sue Wilson Delicate Daisies Complete Petals, Tutti Designs Happy and Birthday words

I'm entering this card in the Simon Says Stamp Wed Challenge:  Showers and / or Flowers.

Thanks for stopping by ~ Ann
