Birthday Daisies - Part Two

Another card using the same image as yesterday. Again, it was stamped and the tablecloth paperpieced and in my card parts pile. This card is almost entirely made from "card parts."

I colored the image with Copics and added Star Dust Stickles to the flower centers. I trimmed down the image and mounted it on foam squares. The card base was cut last summer at our Group Gathering. I loved the Memory Box die and cut through both layers of the card, leaving the top edge intact. I tried and tried to get it to cut through, but couldn't quite get the bottom entirely cut. I had to use an exacto knife, but I finally got it. (It almost ended up in the trash. Whew - I saved it!) I embossed the middle layer with a Sizzix/Stampin' Up! folder and rounded the corners. The tag was already cut from when I was experimenting with my (then) new Spellbinders dies and Grand Calibur. I stamped the sentiment (from Hero Arts) with Versamark and embossed with white. I put a foam square on the bottom part of the tag and glued the top part to the image panel. I love the way this card turned out.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

I love the card base die and the added layer of texture! I will borrow this idea. For my shoebox kladies when I need a project!

It is amazing what you make with your card parts. I love the dies that you used. Love the image that you used too. Your card is lovely Lynette.

I love how you are able to use the same stamp set (yesterday and today) and come out with totally different cards. You are one talented lady!

I think I should be allowed to inspect all of your cards more closely... you know, for quality control. Because, I tell you, it is a treat to see one of your cards in person. There's nothing like real life, is there? I love this one. It has that elegant die cut card base, yet at the same time it is country fresh with the embossed panel and the pretty image. Very nice!
