Charlotte Daisies Birthday
by Trina Pham


Hello and happy weekend.  Today I’ve stretched the Charlotte Blooms and Leaves dies from the 2022 May release and turned them into daisies to create a birthday card inspired by this month’s blue and yellow colour challenge at The Flower Challenge in support of Ukraine.
The flowers were die cut from Bristol paper while the centers were die cut from the lightest yellow Sunny Orange paper.  Each flower is two of the same flower cutouts, and offset.  Coloring / shading was then done with Copic Sketch markers.
yellows - Y11, Y15, YR24
greys - C4, C2, C1, C00
The background is a Bristol panel ink blended with Tumbled Glass and Mermaid Lagoon distress inks (DI) using blender brushes.  The “trellis” was die cut from Bristol paper using the Double Diamond Lattice Plate from Poppy Stamps.  It’s actually a full A2 size, but was reduced by die cutting a frame with Rectangle Basics dies then adhering it over top and trimming away the excess. 


The Posh Happy Birthday sentiment was foiled next with Prism hot foil using the Spellbinders Glimmer hot foil system.  Applied Mermaid Lagoon DI to it, wiped off excess ink with a paper towel (foil resists the ink) and die cut out with the matching die.  Assembled the card onto a white card base then added clear shimmer to the yellow centers to finish. 

Thank you for joining me today.  Have a wonderful day.





I have to buy this daisies die set! LOL :D Love, love, love your sweet card!

WOW! Love this daisy bouquet! The detail on the flower dies is amazing and brought out beautifully with your colors!

Beautiful Trina, love your daisies against the blue background and that trellis die is awesome ♥

I love daisies and this is just gorgeous. Growing on the trellis looks so authentic and I like that trellis and how you altered it to fit.
