Hello Stampin’ Friends,
I am excited to share today’s card with you. It’s from the A Little Lace bundle and it just shouts “HELLO SPRING!!” With this blast of frigid temps, I think we are all looking for some warm sunshine. Nothing brings the thought of warm more than our Daffodil Delight … bright like a daffodil standing tall in the sunshine. I’m featuring both the stamps and the die on this card to really highlight another way to use them …
On today’s card, I cut the lace die cut … you can actually get 2 squares cut out of the lace die cut. I backed my Daffodil Delight lace square with Whisper White. The lace design allows the white to peek through which really highlights the pattern.
I stamped the floral image with the Black Momento Ink pad and fussy cut it out. Now it’s time to grab the Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Duo. I’m using the light and dark to add a touch of color to my flowers … most of it went into the centers. I did sponge a very light amount of ink around in the darker centers.
Just like sunshine … I needed a little sparkle so I painted a little Wink of Stella onto the petals. Not to be outdone, the centers were colored with the Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend and then I went over the top with the Shimmery Crystal Effects … and yes, I even sprinkled glitter over the top of that!!
For the greeting, I simply stamped it onto the Daffodil Delight front and then ran it through my emboss machine using the Subtle Embossing folder. This piece goes directly onto the card base. The floral piece gets glued onto the die cut lace and then the entire piece is popped up onto the front.
Here is a list of all the supplies I used on today’s card …..
This card was fun to make and will send some much needed sunshine into someones life. You know what they say … “A handmade card is like a hug with a fold in the middle”. And now more than ever, I think we should all share our talents in cardmaking by sending them out and brightening someones day.
Thank you for joining me today, I will be back tomorrow with another beautiful card. See you then.
Have an amazing day ~
