The inspiration for today’s card is from the color challenge over at TGIF Challenges (#tgifc250) which is to create a card using the colors Pool Party, Smoky Slate and Melon Mambo.
My daisy was created using Stampin’ Up! 6″ x 6″ Brights Designer Series Paper in Melon Mambo (all of the Brights colors are included in this package) using the Daisy Punch and the Medium Daisy Punch. I used a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional between the two layers of the daisy and placed a Clear Faceted Gem in the middle for some sparkle.
The base of the card is Pool Party with a layer of Smoky Slate that I ran through my die-cutting machine using the Coastal Weave Embossing Folder. On top of that is another layer of Pool Party, popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals (you can find all the measurements below the Supply List).
I used the Stitched So Sweetly Dies to cut a stitched rectangle out of Whisper White cardstock and then ran it through the Coastal Weave Embossing Folder. It’s important to cut the rectangle first and then emboss it. If you do it the other way around, you’ll flatten the embossing (I know this from firsthand experience).
The sentiment was stamped in Melon Mambo onto Whisper White cardstock using the stamp set, Daisy Lane and cut out using the Layering Ovals Dies. The Pool Party oval was cut using the Stitched Shapes Dies. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the Pool Party oval and one in the middle of the daisy and attached both to the front of the card.
All of the supplies I used to create today’s card can be found in the supply list below.
