Hello! It’s been a long time since I last participated in Kylie Bertucci’s International Blog Highlights. Readers get to vote on their top five favorites in the gallery and the top 10 winners will get to participate in an International Blog Hop later this month. The theme is “thank you”. This card uses products from the the Fresh as a Daisy Suite. I stumbled onto the Flying Seagull fun fold on Susan Campfield’s blog and couldn’t wait to try it out and this is what I came up with. It looks hard to do but is actually not that difficult!
Here is how I made the card.
Card base – cut two pieces of Pebbled Path cardstock at 8 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ and score them at 2 1/4″, 4″, 6 1/4″.
Pop-up piece – cut one 4 1/4″ square Pebbled Path cardstock, one 4″ square of Crushed Curry cardstock and one 3 3/4″ square of Basic White cardstock. Adhere the Pebbled Path and Crushed Curry squares together.
Stamp daisy images on the 3 3/4″ Basic white square. Stamp the stems and leaves with Garden Green ink. Stamp the daisy outline images with Crushed Curry ink. Stamp the flower centers with Wild Wheat ink. Adhere to the larger square piece.
Stamp greeting from the Go to Greetings stamp set with Peppled Path ink on scrap piece of Basic White cardstock and cut out with the label die from the Something Fancy Dies. Adhere to stamped image with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. Embellish with a few 2023-2025 In Color Dots.
Fresh as a Daisy DSP – cut two pieces of the daisy print at 2″ x 4″ for the outer side panels and cut two pieces of the Pebbled Path woodgrain print at 1 1/2″ x 4. Cut two pieces of Basic White cardstock at 2″ x 4″ to write a message or stamp a greeting on the inside panels.
With the widest portion of the card bases on the left, fold it up, mountain fold. Fold the two other score lines down, valley folds. Be sure to give a good sharp crease to each of the folds.
Adhere the two card bases to the stamped image. Place it down and with the second valley fold, right side of base, adhere to the back of the stamped image, leaving a scant 1/4″ border. Repeat with second card base. The folds should be butting up to each other on the back.
Adhere DSP and Basic White cardstock strips to the wings. Tuck the outer wings under the stamped image.

I finally had some time to sit down yesterday to make my first card with brand new products from the 2023-2024 Annual Catalog that goes “live” tomorrow! I used the Cheerful Daisies bundle and the coordinating Fresh as a Daisy Designer Series Paper, along with three new colors: Moody Mauve, Bubble Bath and Wild Wheat. I’ve been wishing for a light pink and Bubble Bath is a new color that has been added to the Subtles Collection. I’m loving it! The layout for this card is one that has been my “go to” for many years because it works really well to show off both Designer Series Papers, stamps and dies.
Here is how I made the card.
Card base – cut a piece of Moody Mauve cardstock at 4 1/4″ x 11″, score at 5 1/2″, fold and crease with a bone folder.
Cut two pieces of Bubble Bath cardstock, one at 4 1/8″ square and one at 3 1/4″ x 4″. Cut a piece of Fresh as a Daisy DSP at 4″ and adhere to the square piece of Bubble Bath cardstock.
Cut a piece of Basic White cardstock at 3 1/8″ x 3 7/8″. Stamp birthday greeting in lower right corner with Moody Mauve ink.
Cut another piece of Basic White cardstock to stamp the flowers and leaves. Cheerful Daisies is a two-step stamp set. Stamp the largest daisy image outline stamp with Moody Mauve ink. Stamp the fill-in with Bubble Bath ink. Stamp the smaller daisy outline stamp twice with Bubble Bath ink. Stamp flower centers with Wild Wheat ink. Stamp five single leaves with Wild Wheat ink. Run all images through Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine with coordinating Cheerful Daisies dies.
Adhere the large daisy to the smaller Basic White cardstock piece with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Adhere the two smaller daisies with either mini glue dots or liquid glue, tucking them under the larger daisy. Arrange leaves around the three flowers and adhere with mini glue dots. Adhere piece to the smaller piece of Bubble Bath cardstock.
Cut a length of Moody Mauve 3/8″ Textured Ribbon and tie in a knot around the piece with the DSP. Trim the tails. Adhere piece to card base. Adhere the piece with the stamped images to the DSP piece.
Cut a piece of Basic White cardstock at 4″ x 5 1/4″. Stamp the small triple daisy image in the lower left corner with Moody Mauve ink and color in the centers of the flowers with the Wild Wheat Stampin’ Write Marker. Adhere to inside of card.
