Daisy Smile "He Loves Me" Card

This fun, light hearted card is perfect for a newly engaged friend or even a newly married couple. Leave off the falling leaves and it would be perfect for any friend's or family occasion.
 This card was made with Whisper White and Daffodil Delight card stock, and, one piece of yellow Gingham Gala paper, Tin Tile embossing folder, Daffodil Delight ink, Memento Black ink, Mossy Meadow ink, the Daisy Delight stamp set, the Daisy Lane stamp set, Perennial Essence Floral Centers, Wink of Stella pen, label dies in two sizes and the Large Daisy punch.

You will, of course, need your paper trimmer, scissors, bone folder, die cutting machine, acrylic stamp blocks, an ink dauber or sponge and a variety of adhesives. I used the Tombow Multi Liquid Glue, Stampin' Up's dimensionals, and glue dots.

Step 1: Cut one sheet of  Whisper White to 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" and score it on the long side at 4 1/4". Fold this on the score line, and, using your bone folder reinforce your fold.  Cut one piece of Daffodil Delight to 4 1/4" x 5 1/4", and an additional piece of Whisper White measuring at least 2 1/2" x 5".  Then cut a piece of the small gingham check to 5" x 2 1/4". You may be more comfortable cutting these last two pieces a bit larger for embossing and punching. Once you emboss the Daffodil Delight you can then trim it to the size listed above. You will need a small scrap of Whisper White card stock to stamp your sentiment (about 1 3/4") and a scrap of Daffodil Yellow card stock (about 1 1/2" x 2 1/2") to back your sentiment label.

Step 2: Using your Tin Tile embossing folder and die embossing machine, insert your yellow card stock into the folder so that you will be embossing a 1 1/2" strip on one long edge (5 1/4").

Step 3: Use your large daisy punch and white card stock to punch two daisies. Dab your dauber or sponge on your Daffodil Delight ink pad and edge your daisy petals and an occasional dab around the top center of your daisies. Now swipe over the top of your daisies with Wink of Stella. Set these aside to dry.

Step 4: Using the long stem and hollow leaf stamps from the Daisy Delight set and Mossy Meadow ink pad, stamp the stem on the yellow gingham paper, having the bottom of the stem about 1/2" from the bottom of the paper.  Angle the stem toward the center of your paper. Next stamp three leaves, one angled from the center of the gingham to the upper right hand corner of your paper. One leaf will be stamped at the near top (1/4") and angled slightly to the left. The final leaf will be stamped at an angle on the right angling downward so that the leaf nearly touches the edge of your gingham. The tip of the leaf will be about 2" from the top of the same paper.

Step 5: Attach the Gingham Gala paper to the left side of your embossed yellow card stock, leaving an 1/8" edge to the left and both the top and bottom of your card stock. Now adhere this whole piece to your card base leaving an 1/8" around all four sides.

Step 6: Use your Memento Black ink pad and the "Smile" stamp from the Daisy Lane stamp set stamp the sentiment on your small piece of white card stock. Also use the daisy leaf from this set (looks like a fern leaf) and stamp a few tips around the sentiment in Mossy Meadow. Run this piece through your die cutting machine with a label die. Cut the small piece of Daffodil Delight with a label die that is slightly larger than your sentiment piece. Glue these two pieces together and using Dimensionals, attach this to the lower right hand of your card leaving a small part of it overlapping the gingham but predominantly over the embossed area.

Step 7: Use a pen or small piece of dowel to "roll" up slightly, some of the daisy petals and some down slightly giving it a more realistic appearance. Glue the two daisies together with a glue dot, placing them off center from each other. Now attach the flower center to the center of your daisy with glue dots. Glue the daisy to the end of the stamped stem using Tombow Multi Liquid Glue, making sure that it stamps within the edges of your card base.

Step 8: My intent was to stamp the words "He Loves Me"
and "He Loves Me Not" on a few daisy petals, but I could not accomplish that with the stamps I had on Hand. I went to my computer and typed out those sentiment in a very small font leaving lots of space for punching,  printed them out, and then punched them out individually with my daisy punch. I brushed them lightly with Wink of Stella, rolled the tips slightly and glued them with a small drop of glue. I placed one quite close to the big daisy and then made them look like they were falling downward. Inside of your card, on the signature page,
 
Step 9: Decorate your envelope for an extra touch using the small and medium flowers from the Daisy Delight stamp set. Stamp the medium flower in the lower left corner with your Daffodil Delight ink pad and the little ones to the right of it. Using your fern-looking leaf and squeeze in some  leaf tips around and in between the flowers with Mossy Meadow ink pad.  On the flap of the envelope I also stamped the medium flower and some leaves using the same stamps and the same colors.
