Daisy Card Set

I wanted to create a nice Thank You Gift that included cards that the recipient could use as need. This time I used the Cottage Cutz Daisy Die to create four simple cards, matching envelopes that could be presented in a matching stand. All you need to do is drop the set into a tall cello bag, gather it at the top, add ribbon and a daisy. Ready to go gifts for any occasion. I started with four cards, and choose two colors that would coordinate . Cutting random wavy stripes, Two cards vertical, two cards horizontal and altering color combinations. In this case mounting the flower on white cardstock and randomly cutting odd shape rectangles (no measuring). Mounting on black for a dark frame. Punching a hole and attaching a silver (tin) charm with twisted wire and bead. The charm, wire and bead adds dimension. The card holder was made from foam core board, covering to match the cards. Notice the side I added just the flower centers with the greenery. The envelopes were sponged with the inks that were used on the cards and a Daisy was added to the flap on the envelopes. This brings together a nice combination.

Beautiful set! How'd you cut those cool wavy stripes? I love how you alternated the colors and orientation and the idea of using foam core for the holder is brilliant! xxD
