Hi friends. This is my last project as guest designer for Cheery Lynn Designs for January. I enjoyed working with them and you will see many more projects with Cheery Lynn dies here on my blog.
I started this card with a 5-1/2″ brown square card base for this card topped with a medium pink, light pink and brown layer – each just a little smaller than the previous one. I love layers! Each of my smaller squares were created with the inner die from the Royal Scandinavian Doily. I cut a 2-1/4″ square of ivory cardstock and centered the die and cut. I then layered that on brown and pink cardstock squares and each square is topped with a pretty shasta daisy flower. You will need four of these.
I cut three of the larger flower layers and one of the middle size for each flower – two of the large in light pink and one large and one medium in medium pink. I lightly inked the petal edges with a tan ink and I cupped each petal up around my needle tool before assembling. Add a half pearl for the flower center and then attach two leaves to the back of each flower and adhere to your card.
I finished off the card with a dainty little double-loop bow made on my Bow-it-All V2.0 using Brown Shimmer Satin ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon and a sweet little sentiment at the bottom.
