Create-a-Card Delightful Daisy!

Hello everyone!  Rosemary here today.  Can you believe that February is almost over?!  Time sure is flying by!  With spring right around the corner I have a card to share with you that I created with a die set from a new line at A Jillian Vance Design called Create-a-Card.  So far there are three die sets in this new line:  Delightful Daisy, Divine Cross and EGGstra Special.  I have created a card today using the Delightful Daisy set.   You can use the dies to create cards (either A2 sized or 5x5" square) or use the elements in the die sets on your card fronts.   I going to show you my finished card and then photo how I created the hinged part of my card.

I just love this new Create-a-Card Delightful Daisy die set.  There are so many different dies packed into this set that will give you a great deal of versatility!  As I was making the card I realized that the smaller inner daisy (it has the fun AJVD signature stitched dot element) would be perfect for making smaller cards as well as for the layering element.  To create the hinge on the card is pretty simple.  Simply make a 5x5 inch card base.   Lay the daisy die on the cardstock base so that two of the petals slightly extend over the top on the card base.  (See photo below)  Tape the die in place and run through your die cutter.  This results in a card base that can open either at the top as I have done with my card or on the side.   Once you have your card base made simply die cut patterned paper like I did with the largest die to cover the card base and hide the fact that two of the petals are flat on top.  I used coordinating papers from a very old My Mind's Eye pad to cover the card base, made the smaller daisy, as well as the flower center that I stamped my sentiment on (you get three die to create centers!) and the cute little ladybug!  I used foam tape to adhere the smaller daisy, as well as the center after I had stamped it in Catherine Pooler Black Jack ink with a sentiment from the Get Well Wishes stamp set.   In the near future there will be a stamp set designed with sentiments that will fit inside the large circle that come in the set.  There are also several letter dies that will allow you to spell out words like mom, hello, and hi!  Like I said... this set is so versatile!   As you can see I included a photo that shows just how nicely the card stands up.
