Easter Daffodils

PP583 – A Clean-and-Simple Challenge from Laurie & Make the Cards Challenge #50

Two challenges, one using blooms and keeping it fairly CAS and the other to use an embossing folder and this is the card I came up with that works for both. Perhaps the embossing makes it more busy than Paper Players would like, but when I look at the DT images most have layers of some kind.

The embossing folder is from Crafts Too called Tulip frame and after embossing I cut it down a bit and went over the high points very gently with spun sugar ink. The daffodil and sentiment comes from a new StampinUP set that I coloured and die cut as does the butterfly. It is made just from the tiny dies that came in the set. I added it to a green GKD card front. The sentiment was die cut with an old label die that I got in one of those reseller stores like HomeSense but I don’t know who made it. I’m happy with this card and it wasn’t difficult to make.

    1. Thanks. The bundle that this was part of is quite nice and I built some die cut daffodils with it yesterday.

    1. yes I agree that EF is a nice one and I should use it more. I had so much trouble with embossing for a while that I almost stopped doing it. Now I use my old big shot just for that and if it breaks I don’t care.

  1. This is a great card and really is pretty CAS, even with all the texture. I love that label die. It’s quite a unique shape and gives a fun detail to your wonderful card.

    1. That die is a lovely one I agree. It only works with certain stamps though which can be frustrating.
