I know I am always saying that this and that card is an easy one however today's card is a bit of a change it looks simple but took a while to figures out!
I started by die cutting the medium sized daisy die four times in a square of coconut card however i had to measure to get them in the right places. Now I may not have mentioned but in typical bloke fashion measuring and me don't go together but I managed it!
I mounted the die cut waste piece over a piece of pale blue card and foam mounted it. I then die cut four more of the daisies in the same pale blue and mounted them into the apertures. This still looked a little plain so I cut four of the outlines in the Coconut card and added these on top.
I wanted the backing to show and the fact that they were cut out so I shaped each petal to give depth and a peek at the background. As per usual with most of my flowers I added a pearl in the centres and mounted the whole piece on a few, foam mounted mats and layers of the blue and white card to give the larger square card I seem to be making at the moment.
The front still looked a little blank however I thought a sentiment would finish it so I cut a tag from the French collection Borders and tags set, inked it in broken China distress Ink and stamped the sentiment.
I have added a picture of the daisy in close up so you can, hopefully, see what I mean about dimension. I love the way the flower seems to appear form the very centre of the card!
