Daisies in the Window

OK, I finally have to admit it to myself (I am pretty sure you all know this already), I cannot make a card with less then four layers!! You won't believe how many changes this poor card has went through... This is the third card for my upcoming "April Showers bring May Flowers" card class at Cranberry Hill Mercantile. Since the other two cards are kind of time consuming, this card was supposed to be very simple and fast to make.. Just when I thought I was done with the design of the card and was adhering the layers inside, I have decided that the white layer will look nice on the front of the card as well.. So, here I went again taking my card apart.. I also added the polka dot corner to look like a curtain (maybe?).. I like it so much better now!! It is still simple, but cute.

To see the other two cards for this class, please click here and here. This class is scheduled for:

Thursday, April 23rd, 11 am to 2 pm (only one spot left!!!)
Thursday, April 23rd, 4:30 pm to 7:30 pm
Saturday, May 23rd, 12 pm to 3 pm

Please call Cranberry Hill Mercantile at 408-736-9151 to sign up.

If you can't make it to the class but would like to make these three cards, please call Cranberry Hill Mercantile at 408-736-9151 during the business hours to purchase a Class Kit.

This card measures 4 1/2" x 6".

The daisies were made with Marvy Pink and Blue scallop circle punches. I cut into every single scallop towards the center. For the centers of the flowers I punched out 3/4" circles and then embossed them with Cuttlebug (don't remember the name of this folder). To make the vase I punched out the circle with the Pink Marvy punch and then cut off the top and the bottom. Easy!!

Background paper is by My Minds Eye and the polka dot paper is from Bo Bunny. There are two rows of ric rak ribbon on the vase and the buttton with the greens (Martha Steward punch).
