Good Morning! I used the pretty die cut daffodils from the Stampin’ Up! Daffodil Daydream bundle to make an Easter card for my Facetime Live yesterday afternoon. You can find the supplies I used in my video at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
My design was inspired by the sketch challenge in TGIF Challenges #tgifc539. Here’s the pretty card sketch:
I embossed a Basic White panel with the Hive 3D embossing folder and trimmed it to 4″ x 5-1/4″ before adhering it to the front of a Thick Basic White card base. I adhered two strips of Hand Penned designer series paper on the embossed panel and started to make the flowers using Daffodil Delight card stock.
Here’s a picture of the die cuts for the flowers in the Stampin’ Up! Daffodil Daydream bundle. For each of the flower elements there is a background die cut and a detailed die cut. Adhere the detailed die cut to the top of the background die cut and you get the layered elements on the right. Then combine the layered elements to complete the flower. For the tallest daffodil, I used two sets of the 3 petal flowers and topped it with the center section. For the shortest flower, I used the 4 petal flower on the 2 petal flower and topped it with another center section. The bud is just the single layered bud element.
After putting the flowers together, I die cut the stems and leaves from the Stampin’ Up! Daffodil Daydream bundle from Garden Green card stock. I adhered three leaves to the DSP with liquid glue, trimming the bottom with paper snips before applying the liquid glue. I adhered stems to the back of the flowers and adhered them with liquid glue over the leaves (except for the bud, the stem fits nicely on the top). I trimmed the bottom of the tallest flower and adhered it. Next I did the same with the shortest flower and used a dimensional to lift the flower a bit, and finally trimmed the bottom and adhered the bud.
I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Daffodil Daydream cling stamp set in Garden Green on Basic White and cut it out with the Tailor Made Tags die. I adhered a Daffodil Delight Tag reinforcement to the top and looped some ribbons through the hole. I tied off the ribbons with linen thread, making a bow and adhered the tag with dimensionals. I finished off the card front with a little gold bumblebee trinket.
For the inside of the card, I stamped the daffodil from the Stampin’ Up! Daffodil Daydream stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black on Basic White and Colored it with Stampin’ Blends. I used Daffodil Delight on the flower and Light Shaded Spruce and Light Mossy Meadow on the stems and leaves (this results in a shade close to Garden Green). I stamped the wonderful Easter sentiment from the A Wish for Everything cling stamp set in Garden Green and trimmed the bottom with Hand Penned DSP. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.
The Stampin’ Up! Daffodil Daydream bundle is perfect for Spring cards! I love the die cut daffodils and the stamped images are pretty too. Daffodils are the first flowers to bloom in my yard, and I’m always happy to see them. This bundle captures that same feeling.
