Shasta Daisy Banner Card




Remember the Brown Snowflake Christmas card I made the other day? The doily I used on that card was cut down to fit on the center panel, and I saved the other piece of that doily. Rather than throw it away, I fiddled around with this card and managed to fit that little piece of doily on here. :-)

See how I wiggled that scrap of doily underneath the flower? That just goes to show you - never throw anything away!! More times than not, you'll make something cute out of it. The products from Classy Cards 'n Such that I've used on this card are:

French Pastry Doily die (Cheery Lynn Designs)
Shasta Daisy strip die (Cheery Lynn Designs)
Kraft cardstock
French Country 6x6 paper pad
Vintage Bliss 6x6 paper pad

I found this kraft cardstock in my stash - it had already been stamped for another project and I never used it. It was just so perfect with these country papers that I decided to go ahead and layer my paper strips on this kraft card base. So I cut various papers from both of the 6x6 paper pads and used scissors to cut the v-notches at the bottom. I glued these down to my card base in a random pattern using the Banner Technique from Technique Junkies (Feb/March 2013 issue). The doily piece was glued right at the top of the paper strips. A small strip of brown cardstock was paper pierced and then a white gel pen was used to give the Faux Stitching look to the piece. I die cut the Shasta Daisy strip with dark orange cardstock and attached all the layers together with a vanilla brad. The petals were fluffed up and curled over using my fingers and then adhered to the top of the card.

I hope you've enjoyed my cute country card today! As always, you can use this code, Holly-10, to save 10% off your order at Classy Cards 'n Such.  Have a great week!
