I have a very Happy card to share today. At least I believe it is one that will make you SMILE! I also added a technique that is not as often used as most.
I believe daisies are just Happy Flowers. They seem to jump off of the card here. I used both the old Daisy Punch and NEW Medium daisy punch today. Each is two punched out flowers layered on top of each other. I also added the Perennial Essence Floral Center to each flower.
The background is Direct Ink To Paper. I simply opened the ink pad and drug it across the face of the Whisper White card stock. When I have shared this technique before, it was done on Glossy card stock. This time I used just regular Whisper White, not even the Thick version.
The two colors I used are Pretty Peacock on the bottom and Seaside Spray on the upper section. I went over it a second time in spots where I had lifted a tad early. I like the light and dark that you get in doing this technique. You do not want to press too hard.
The leaves are from the Daisy Lane Stamp set and are stamped in Granny Apple Green. The sentiment is from the same stamp set. I love one stamp set cards!! I stamped the Smile on a scrap of card stock and then only punched one end with the Pretty Label Punch. I accomplished this by placing the piece of card stock inside the cutting area from the back. It was smaller than the punch area, so it was easy to line up top and bottom and then just punch the one end. I love playing with our punches to get different looks!
