Daisy Wedding Card

Today I have a lovely card to share with you that makes your Big Shot shine! The longer I have it and use it, I can't imagine how I spent all those years stamping without it! To me, it has become a necessity! The dies are so very versatile and so easy to use. It seems like I can find a use for the Big Shot on almost every card I make!! Watch out! Hold me back! It's invading all my cards and ideas!!

I believe I saw the inspiration for this card on Andrea Walford's blog. I went looking for it again and couldn't find it right off, so don't quote me on that. The colors are soft and have an elegant look to them, so they would be perfect for a wedding card.

All stamps and materials by Stampin'Up!

Stamps: En Francais, and Short & Sweet

Cardstock: Baja Breeze (retired), Very Vanilla, So Saffron, and Old Olive

Ink: Baja Breeze (retired), So Saffron

Accessories: Scallop Edge Punch, Large Oval and Scallop Oval Punches, Big Shot with Flower Daisies #2 Die, and Swirly Decorative Strip Die, Round Ice Rhinestone Brads, Kiwi Kiss/Vanilla Satin Ribbon (retired), Sponge quarter, and Dimensionals

Isn't the large daisy gorgeous? I love the alternating layers of colors. Using the Bone Folder to curl each petal really makes the whole image just pop! And the swirly vines just adds so much. It's so pretty I almost hate to give this card away. No, no! I can't be selfish and keep all my favorites for myself. Just what am I going to do with them all?!? LOL

Hope you have a Big Shot too! Aren't they wonderful to work with and so versatile? If you'd like your own Big Shot, I'd be happy to help you get one. Plus I'll give you one of the Sizzlits Dies on the top of page 106 Free when you purchase your Big Shot through me. Contact me for details. Soon you'll be adding Big Shot touches to all your creations too!

Happy Stampin'


ps - don't forget to leave me your comments. I'll be explaining later.....

I love your card and your choice of colors. I love blue and yellow together. I don have one question, though. What is the little flower in the center with the rounded petals?

Love this card. I was trying to figure out what colors I could mix with Apricot and a yellow to get that soft look. Well done!
