About four months ago I was a my Upline’s retreat. For the camp, I had created a card for a shoebox (the colloquial name we give projects that we prepare for those at camp to create). The new catalogue had not long been released and I fell in love with ‘Cheerful Daisies’ on my first flip through the catalogue. Funny how something takes our eye and we know it is a stamp set we want!
While I was at the camp, I was playing with the set. I had been looking on Pinterest for card to make with this set and I found this one by Debbie Henderson. It is a trifold card and I wanted to create it so I cased her card.
When I had finished it, I was thinking of some other things I could do with the same design. I had bought the Earthen Elegance DSP when I bought the Cheerful Daisies stamp set. I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do with it!! (as sometimes happens!) I had also bought Everlasting Beauty stamp set.
I loved this stamp set because of the flowers in it. It has many of our Australian flowers in it. I began experimenting by casing a card by handstampedbyRachel.blogspot. I didn’t have some of the dies she had so I improvised to create my own card. Once I had that finished, I realised that I could marry Earthen Elegance and this stamp set and make a monchromatic card in the Trifold design.
Earthen Elegance recommends using colours such as Copper Clay, Gray Granite, Misty Moonlight, Moody Mauve, Pebbled Path, Pecan Pie and Pretty Peacock. I used a piece of the DSP, Copper Clay and Very Vanilla cardstock.
I used the Countryside Corners to cut out each of the layers. The top layer was the other side of one of the DSP sheets. I stamped the images on it with Copper Clay. The next layer was embossed with the Cross hatch Embossing folder and the largest layer was embossed with Cane Weave.
The base of the card is a piece of Copper Clay to which I added some matching DSP. I then stamped the sentiment with Versamark and heat set with Gold embossing powder. The sentiment is from Wonderful Thoughts. I cut each sentiment of the saying apart and placed them with dimensionals on the lower part of the card.
I was so excited with how this card turned out. Although it looks complicated, it was actually quite easy to make and it looks very effective!.
