Let's get crafting!


Step 1: The finished card measures 7 inches by 6 inches. Cut a 12 x 7” white cardstock and fold at 6 inches to make a top fold card. Cut two 6 x 7” pieces of the Daffodil Delight Paper, sheet #1A, and ink the edges with vivid chartreuse ink. Glue inside the card.

Step 2: Cut the following pieces of paper and glue them on top of each other: black cardstock 5 11/16 x 6 15/16”, green designer paper 5 1/2 x 6 11/16”, pink designer paper 5 1/4 x 6 1/2”, white cardstock 4 7/8 x 6 1/8”, black cardstock 4 3/4 x 6”.

Step 3: Cut out swirls using HCD1-7262 Swirly Border Accents Die from white cardboard and use the negative as a stencil on a 4 1/2 x 5 3/4” white cardboard. Use Vivid Chartreuse ink to create swirl patterns on your background. Glue on your card using dries clear adhesive.

Step 4: Stamp the daffodils from the HCPC-3943 Delightful Daffodil & Butterfly Cling Stamp Set and the HCPC-3944 Delightful Daffodil & Hyacinth Cling Stamp Set with black archival ink. Color them with Zig Markers in light green, yellow and pink colors. Cut with the coordinating dies.

Step 5: Cover your diecuts with 3D lacquer to give a varnished effect to your flower. Let dry completely.

Step 6: Glue the flowers on your card. Add pink, black and green stamens to give a little bit of dimension. 

Step 7: Stamp a sentiment from Just For You Sentiments Cling Stamp Set on a pink piece of paper. Ink the edge with vivid chartreuse ink and glue it on your card with 3D foam.
