Daisy Blossom Stem Happy Birthday
by Anne Thompson

I need a lot of birthday cards for the month of April.  This first one uses the Daisy Blossom Stem and the Happy Birthday Posh Script dies, watercolors, and Memory Box papers.


to make this card

  • start with a red notecard
  • add the striped paper from GARDEN FOLLY PP1005, cut 5 1/4 X 4
  • add a lime-y green paper from the LUSH GREEN COLLECTION SP1003, cut 4 1/4 X 3


  • cut the DAISY BLOSSOM STEM 94616 from watercolor paper; remove the dies but leave the images in place on the background
  • use whatever watercolors you like to paint the flowers and stems--I used a set of Staedtler watercolors
  • once the paint is dry, remove the pieces from the background and add three tiny orange gems from AUTUMN FAIRY JEWELS JWL004 to the large daisy blossom center

  • add the flowers and stems to the right side of the green panel
  • die cut the background for the HAPPY BIRTHDAY POSH SCRIPT from the leftover piece of the striped paper and add it to the notecard panel
  • die cut the detailed Happy Birthday from the leftover piece of lime-y green cardstock; add it to the background piece
  • add five more of the orange Fairy Jewels along the right edge of the stems


the dies used to make this card


One down and several more to go!  And I've got to get going on Easter cards...I've started pulling dies and papers and thinking of ways to combine them.  Take another look at the Memory Box catalog here and keep checking back on our Outside the Box blog for more inspiration!

Happy Crafting!
