Adhere the long strip of yellow diamonds Daffodil Afternoon Designer Paper to the long strip of vanilla plus signs Daffodil Afternoon Designer Paper so one row of plus signs shows along the right edge of the yellow diamonds strip.
Peel the protective backing off of the Adhesive Sheets rectangle. Adhere the Adhesive Sheets rectangle to one long edge of the Crushed Curry rectangle. Be sure to leave the other protective backing in place for now.
Pick out the mosaic lattice die from the Slim Card Dies. Put it on top of the Crushed Curry rectangle on a platform on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine so the Crushed Curry side is facing up. Run through the machine. Keep the large outline mosaic lattice piece and three of the interior mosaic cut outs to use on this card. Discard the rest or save the rest of the interior mosaic cut outs to use on another project.
Adhere the layered designer paper strips to the left long edge of the mosaic lattice rectangle cut out. Make sure the adhesive sheet is on the back of the RIGHT side of the mosaic trellis rectangle cut out. The black strip of designer paper should be on the right side and the left, top, and bottom edges of the layered designer paper strip should be even with the left, top, and bottom edges of the mosaic lattice rectangle cut out.
Carefully remove the protective backing from the Adhesive Sheet on the back of the mosaic lattice cut out and add Stampin' Seal to the back where it is hidden by the layered designer paper strips. Adhere the layered designer paper strips/mosaic lattice cut out to the front of the slimline Daffodil Delight card.
Adhere two of the mosaic cut out pieces to the centers of the outline as shown using Stampin' Seal. Adhere the third mosaic cut out piece to the center of the outline as shown using a Stampin' Dimensional.
Mount the single daffodil image from the Daffodil Daydream Set on Block I. Ink it up with the Memento Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of the vanilla rectangle.
Pick out the matching, large, single daffodil die from the Daffodil Dies. Put it on top of the stamped daffodil image on a platform on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine so it is centered over the image. Run through the machine.
Tip: It is often better to cut an image out with dies before spending all the time to color it in. That way if the die slips during the cutting process, you haven't wasted a lot of time on the colorin
Put the daffodil cut out on some Grid Paper to protect your work surface. You need to make sure that you protect your work surface with paper as the Stampin' Blends Markers do bleed through.
Use the Light and Dark So Saffron Stampin' Blends to color in the petals of the daffodil flower.
Use the Light and Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blends to color in the trumpet of the daffodil flower.
Use the Light and Dark Old Olive Stampin' Blends to color in the stems and leaves
Adhere the colored daffodil cut out to the front of the card so it overlaps the right side of the layered designer paper strips a bit and the bottom of the stem is about 1" from the bottom of the card.
Mount the sentiment of choice from the Daffodil Daydream Set on Block B. Ink it up with the Crushed Curry Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of one end of the horizontal vanilla strip leaving room to punch it out.
Unlock the Label Me Fancy Punch. Holding the punch upside down so you can see the punching area, slide the stamped sentiment into the punch and get it centered in the punching area. Punch.
Using Stampin' Dimensionals, adhere the sentiment punch out to the bottom of the card so it covers the bottom of the daffodil stems and sticks out to the right side as shown.
Cut a 3-1/2" piece of the Very Vanilla 3/8" Scalloped Lace Trim.
Tie a half knot in the center of the lace trim. Trim the ends.
Use a Mini Glue Dot to adhere the lace trim knot to the front of the card at an angle over the bottom left side of the sentiment punch out.
Use the mini spatula on the Take Your Pick to carefully peel up a small Pale Papaya jewel from a sheet of 2021-2023 In Color Jewels making sure that you get the adhesive backing as well. Adhere it to the center of the mosaic cut out area in the upper right corner of the card as shown.
