Razzleberry Daisy

If you are looking for details on the Addicted to CAS challenge, click here.




Hi everyone.  My second post for today!!  So happy to have a little time today to join in on two challenges. Today's card is for SCS Free For All Challenge (F4A163 - Glittery Birthday) ... and Color Throwdown (CTD236 - Always Artichoke, Daffodil Delight, Rich Razzleberry, Orchid Opulence).

I made a large daisy from punches, added a light coating of glue to the center, and then poured glitter on top. Love this color combination for the daisy!  ... this may show up on my next card candy! :)



Stamps:  Happiest Birthday Wishes (SU!)
Paper:  White, Rich Razzleberry, Daffodil Delight, Always Artichoke, Summer Smooches DP (SU!)
Ink:  Rich Razzleberry, More Mustard (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  Big Shot, Fanciful Flourish die (Cheery Lynn), Giant Daisy Punch and Large Sun Punch (Punch Bunch), glitter, Stamp-a-ma-jig, glue, and adhesives



As mentioned above, the daisy is made from punches and shaped with my tweezers, stylus and mat (three layers).  I also punched three of the sun punches from Daffodil Delight, sponged More Mustard around the edges, cut each ray in half, shaped with my stylus and mat and then glued together.  Once dry, I added just a little glue and then lots of "orchid-colored" glitter.  Once the glitter was dry, I tapped off the excess and then glued the center onto the daisy.  This was a fun and easy card.


Here's a close-up of the daisy:
