More Blossom Party

Today's card was one of my Control Freak organized swap cards at Stampin' Up!'s Convention last week.  I was inspired to make this one by yesterday's Create with Connie and Mary Challenge card.  I decided to change up the colors from white daisies to yellow ones.  The yellow ones in my garden are in full bloom right now!  I LOVE the new Daffodil Delight yellow…it is just SO cheery and fresh to me!



The base of my card is Early Espresso.  I added a layer of Daffodil Delight cardstock on top.  Over that is a strip of Greenhouse Gala Designer Paper (I thought it looked sort of like a lattice in the background!)  That was layered onto Pear Pizzazz cardstock.  I used the new Dotted Ribbon punch with Early Espresso Cardstock and adhered it to the back of the Pear Pizzazz so only the one scallop edge showed.  I used Daffodil Delight Textured cardstock for the Stampin' Up! Blossom Party Die daisies across the front with the centers of Early Espresso cardstock.  Then I tied a 1/8 Taffeta Ribbon in Daffodil Delight into a bow under the flower that is popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals.  Finally, the greeting "Thanks Big Time" is from the new set, A Word For You and stamped with Early Espresso Classic Ink.


I love how this turned out.  That Blossom Party die is so versatile…I can't believe I didn't notice it sooner!


Have a wonderful day!
