Recently, a friend of mine wanted to give card making a try. She found a few cards online that she liked and asked if I could show her how to make something like them. This is my version of one of those cards.
Here’s the card I CASED:
(from: Better Homes and Gardens, March 10, 2016)
The original sample was adorable the way it was laid out, but if you are at all familiar with my style, you know I wouldn’t be able to glue my pieces down so randomly or crookedly … LOL!! Also, the flowers on the sample were real daisies that were dried and pressed. I used die cut flowers instead.
I played around with different stems, grass and the yellow central florets. Here are two more versions.
I couldn’t find the paper or ribbon used on the sample so I improvised. The paper is from the “Pinks & Corals” pad by Craft Smith. The paper has a white core so I was able to sand and scrape it up a bit. I also rubbed white Gesso on the surface with a paper towel. I was afraid to use too much, and now I feel like there is not enough white. Next time…
For the stems, I used Recollections Jute Twine or white Darice Paper Rope. The leaves are Celebrate It Swiss Dot ribbon from Michaels. For the central florets, I used buttons from a mixed bag I purchased online or “You Had Me At Yellow” mini prills.
The daisies were cut with dies by Whitelotous. The grass is Gina K Grass Green card stock or a scrap of printed paper from my stash (not sure which paper pad it came from). Whaline Green and Celebrate It White raffia were also used.
The greeting is from the “Nurturing Blooms” set by Gina K Designs and was heat embossed with Ranger White embossing powder and versamark ink. (You can see the shine a little better on the second sample.)
Thanks for checking out my card projects!

What a neat idea! I like your version as I couldn’t begin to place the flowers so scattered, like the original.
