You’re Simply the Best!

Today I’m over on the LDRS Creative Inspiration Blog with another project featuring the Daisy Daisy stamp & die set by Polkadoodles and Basic Cutting Edge Borders I by Creative Basics. I was inspired by a card that I saw on Pinterest (where else?!?) created by Linda Callahan that just seemed perfect for the Daisy Daisy stamp. I stamped the leaves and stem on X-Press It Blending Card by Copic and used the arched die from the Basic Cutting Edge Borders I to shape the cardstock. I stamped the flower on a separate piece of blending card and used the associated die to cut it out. When assembling the card, I used a small foam square to elevate the flower, giving the card some depth and dimension.

The inspiration for this card was the theme of the current House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge “Spring is in the Air.” But with another 6-8 inches of snow expected this evening, I’m ready to bypass spring and moved on to summer.
