S ympathy Card
Cut 8-1/2" x 11" Whisper White at 5-1/2" and fold at 4-1/4".
Cut a piece of Tranquil Tide cardstock at 5-1/4" x 4".
Cut another piece of Whisper White cardstock at 5" x 3-3/4".
Cut a piece of Delightful Daisy DSP (or DSP of your choice) at 5" x 3-3/4" and cut it in half by placing DSP diagonally, corner to corner on your Stampin' Trimmer. You only need to use one piece for this card. Save the other piece for another card.
Cut about 7 inches of 1/4" Daffodil Delight Double Stitched Ribbon.
On a piece of scrap Whisper White, stamp the Daisy twice in Tranquil Tide. Then stamp center of daisy with Daffodil Delight ink, but first stamp off once for second generation stamping. Next stamp over the center with the detail stamp in full strength Daffodil Delight to add dimension. Now stamp three leaves in second generation,and then stamp the detail leaf in full strength. Punch out the daisies with the Daisy Punch and fussy cut the three leaves..
To construct your card, select the one piece of the DSP that you cut diagonally and glue it onto the 5 x 3-3/4" Whisper White cardstock (as noted in picture). Next, add thin strip of Liquid Multipurpose Glue onto the back of the ribbon and butt it up against the DSP. Trim off hanging pieces of ribbon. (Tip: Turn to backside to see exactly where to cut ribbon.) At this point, stamp on the small triple daisies in Tranquil Tide ink diagonally across the card, right above the ribbon. Next, stamp the "Praying for You" sentiment from the Thoughts & Prayers Stamp Set (or sentiment of your choice) on the front and stamp a sentiment or write a message on the inside of the card.
We're almost there! Glue the two daisies, you punched, together with Liquid Multipurpose Glue. Add one Stampin' Dimensional to the back. At this point gently curl the petals of your daisy for dimension. Now apply Clear Wink of Stella to the center of the daisy. Optional: When dry, apply a thin layer of Fine Tip Glue for shine and more dimension. Set daisy aside to dry.
Now to assemble. Glue the 5" x 3-3/4" piece of your card to the 5-1/4" x 4-1/4" Tranquil Tide cardstock. Now take this piece and adhere it to your 5-1/2" x 4-1/4" Whisper White Card Base.
If you chose to use the Fine Tip Glue in the center of your daisy and it's now dry, apply the daisy to the front of your card with the Stampin' Dimensional on the side with the DSP. Once placed, apply a little glue to the branch of the three leaves and glue underneath the daisy.
Walla! You're done! The directions sound complicated, but it's really simple. I hope you give it a try. Use different colors and DSP to see what amazing results you come up with. Have a great crafty day!!!
