And I recently saw a card (and of course I can't find the link now. sheesh) but the card had a die cut and then layered onto several pieces of black cardstock, which I though was neat.
I love the new dies from Suzanne and this time I'm using "Hello".
So I scored and folded my main white card (5"w x 7"h). Die cut the hellow on a piece of white Ruche textured cardstock, sliced the negative at about the half way point and set aside.
Die cut the word again, from white cardstock and then 3 layers of black cardstock, each of these had a piece of Sookwang tape attached prior die cutting. Then adhered/stacked all 4 layers.
Die cut the daisy sprig from white cardstock with Sookwang tape. Removed the release paper from the inner parts of the petals and sprinkled with Stickles dry fine glitter "Yellow". Then removed the centers and stem release paper and sprinkled with Glitter Ritz micro fine glitter "Black". Removed all the rest of the release paper and sprinkled with "white".
Cut another piece of Ruche cardstock and adhered to front.
Positioned the first piece of Ruche cardstock to position my daisy sprig and adhered. Then adhered the Ruche, then the word "Hello" into the original openings from die cutting.
Stamped the word "Sunshine" ("Always Be My Friend" 3 pce set) using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed. (ps I first masked off the rest of the sentiment prior inking, removed the mask and then stamped).
Added pieces of a bright yellow narrow ribbon to either side of the word and then topped it with white flower ribbon. Added the white half pearls in each corner.
On the inside, masked of the front flap and stamped the large daisy head (Stampendous "Jumbo Daisy") using Distress mini pads "Mustard Yellow" all over and then hitting the edges of the center seed pod with black, misting with water and stamping. Inked up the stem portion in the same manner. Used a damp paint brush to move the color around.
Stamped the quote with the Versafine black and clear embossed. Stamped the "Happy Birthday" ("Happy Birthday Plain and Simple" 7 pce set) using the yellow and black Distress pads and clear embossing.
