Hi everyone! Sherry here with a Spring card featuring my go-to flower, Sketch Daisy. If I haven't mentioned it before, I love the versatility of this die, and have used it so many ways. I hope you like this die as much as I do!

Sketch Daisy Journey - 1

It's almost impossible for me do a one layer card, and this one is no exception! I first cut a white piece of card stock to 3-3/4" x 5", softly sponged Spun Sugar Distress Ink where shown, and splattered Peeled Paint Distress Ink over that. I die cut three of the Sketch Daisy from a medium green card stock, and snipped off the flowers. I cut three of only the flower in white card stock.  I sponged a fairly heavy layer of Spun Sugar through the Peony Blossoms stencil onto a piece of white card stock, and cut three of the solid petals out of that.

I offset the patterned petals onto the white open petals and glued them together. I adhered the stems and leaves first, then mounted the solid leaves with glue at the bottom tips and a small piece of foam tape towards the top of each leaf before adding them to the open leaves, again offsetting them slightly. I did the same with the flowers, adding a small piece of foam tape towards the top of two petals, and adhered them to the top of the stems using glue at the bottoms. This was worth the effort as I wanted the flowers and leaves to be three-dimensional.

The sentiment was stamped using Versamark Onyx Black ink. I added dew drops to the flower centers and scattered a few more. That assembled piece was then added to the card base with foam tape.  Thanks for stopping by, and have a great rest of the week!




Thanks for showing another way to use the outline dies! I like it!

Who knew? I hadn't seen anything attractive in this die and it looks great!

This is beautiful Sherry! I love how you added the color to the offset flower petals and the background! The little gems look like dew drops too!

Lovely card Sherry! I just got that die and I love how you used it! Thank you so much!!

Thanks for your comment, Jeanne! It was a fun card to make. :)

Thanks for your comment, Maureen! If you haven't browsed through the February Look Book, check it out. I used this die on a few of the cards in different ways. :)

Oh Wow this is just Beautiful, I love your idea of offsetting them like that and the stenciling is so pretty, gives it a pretty design!!
