Yellow Daisies Card

Filed under: OperationWriteHome — Tags: — patq3266 @ 4:05 pm

Hello everyone,

I know it seems anachronistic to be making a pale yellow daisy card when the fall colors are so vibrant, but daisies are a late summer/fall flower, and I just couldn’t resist this color combination. It looks beautiful in real life.

The Daisy stamp is from DeNami Design. I am loving their stamps. The sentiment is from SU! I stamped the flowers with Old Olive ink and then colored them in with Barely Banana. The bow is ribbon from Michael’s, and I put some gold rhinestones on each flower center. Enjoy!

Christmas Cards

Well, it’s officially Christmas season, at least now until the end of October. When I make cards for Operation Write Home, the Christmas cards are due in by the October 31. So I have a few made. Actually, I only make a few different ones, then I mass produce them. That way, I can make the most of my time. So here are the first two:

Red Christmas Ornament

This one I definitely cased from Andrea Walford’s site. She has a video that takes you step by step how to make it.

Merry Christmas Poinsettia

To make this card, I used the Season of Joy stamp set by SU! and also the five petal punch. I punched out 2 red flowers and one green. I scored the red flowers and folded it slightly to give it some definition. I used the Boho Blossom punch to create the little red and white flower in the middle, and attached it to the card with a rhinestone brad.
