Yellow Daisies...

Happy Wednesday,

A relatively simple card today made with just one die with no die cut embellishments or flowers a rare card for me lol

I really like the spring like colours used as I dont often use yellow but I found this new Crafts Too card in a soft yellow linen finish so I juts had too use it.

I started by cutting the Gerbera panel down the side of a piece of gold dust white card  I extended the die by slotting it back in to make a strip of 5 flowers.  I foam mounted this over a strip of the yellow and raised the petals of each flower adding a pearl in the centre of each Gerbera.

I then added a strip of yellow gingham down the opposing side with a large bow which I think this card carries well.  I finished with my usual set of mats and layers with pearl strips added on each edge.



  1. Morning John, a beautiful spring inspired card, love the gingham ribbon and bow, great design. Have a great day everyone. Bx

  2. Hi John

  11. Hi John
    Lovely sunny card to brighten a really grey day. I think daisies and yellow or green gingham always work so well together, thank you.

    Good morning John.
    A beautiful card that I may try to replicate when I get my Gerbera dies. I am pretty hopeless at bows but I will probably use a pretty swirl in it's place.
    Your cards are always beautiful and I thank you for sharing.
