It is my day to take over the blog at Victorine Originals, http://vostamps.blogspot.com/ and I decided I needed some more "just because" type cards for my stash to send to friends who may need a pick me up or just some happy mail. These daisies are just so versatile and pretty, so let's jump right in and talk about the card:
I started by taking an A2 sized, side folding, white card base and stamping one of the large daisy images from the Raisin Boat Oops A Daisy (10236) set three times on the front edge, while the card was open. I then fussy cut the edge with the intention of leaving it so there would be a fancy edge while the card was closed, that changed though as I worked on my design, which I will explain shortly. I also waited to color the images until I finished cutting so if I made a mistake it would be easier to correct then if I made a mistake cutting after I colored them. I then used 5 different shades of pinks from my Tombow markers and colored the flowers, then using a white gel pen I added some details to each flower to add more interest. I then stamped the "Hi" and "Friend" sentiments from the same set in black versafine ink. Once the white ink had dried I added a coat of shimmer to each flower using a Nuvo Glitter Gloss pen. I then decided that I wanted a bit more color so found some ombre paper in my stash that went perfect and added that to the inside front panel.
