To make the daisy: I punched three of the giant daisies from Bazzill White (I like the added texture of this cardstock). I "pinched" the tip of each petal to add shape. I also used my mat and stylus to shape the flowers (pushing on the center of the flowers which bends the petals forward). I glued the three layers together, offsetting the petals slightly. For the center, I punched nine small suns from Daffodil Delight cardstock. I cut the rays in half on each of the suns and also cut through 2/3 way into the middle of each sun at one point only. I used the mat and stylus again to shape and break down the fibers of the cardstock. I used the tweezers to grab the edge of the large cut section and then roll it into a cone shape, adding glue at the edge to hold it together - I repeated this with each of the nine suns. I added more glue to the center of my white daisy and glued down an outter ring of eight rolled suns. I glued the ninth rolled sun to the middle of the daisy center.
Here's a close-up of the daisy:
For the rest of the card I sponged the flourish with Certainly Celery ink to add some depth and then assembled all the pieces as shown in the photo above, adding the sentiment in Marina Mist ink and popping up the vertical panel to add more depth.
I added a 1 1/4" strip of the same DP, framed in Certainly Celery cardstock, to the inside Whisper White panel.
