Daisy Dreams Birthday Card | Taylored Expressions

While looking through my stash for birthday cards, I discovered that I didn't have any that were more suited to the winter months so I'll be trying to create a few darker ones and adding them to my stash. This one features Daisy Dreams from Taylored Expressions. I previously used the sentiments in my Bouquet Trio post HERE.

This set comes with the most beautiful images that are so fun and easy to colour but if you'd rather use layering stencils, you can buy the Daisy Dreams Layering Stencil which I've used here. The colours I've used for the three layers are Plum Punch, Blueberry and Mint Julep.

After stencilling two of the large daisy images, I used the coordinating Daisy Dreams Dies to cut them out. The three-step process was so quick and easy, which also makes mass-producing this card a crafter's dream!

Based on the four colours I chose for this card design, I knew I wanted the background to be cut from Corn Blue cardstock using the Stitched Rectangle Stacklets

I also created a silver glitter frame, using the Petite Scallop Rectangle Stacklets. This gives the card the right amount of sparkle and is a nice contrast to the dark background!

I attached the two layers on to a Sea Salt card base before popping the flowers on to the Corn Blue panel with foam tape. To finish, I heat embossed the sentiment in white on Corn Blue cardstock and added some highlights to the discs with a white gel pen.

I hope you enjoyed today's project. I appreciate you stopping by and, if you're inspired, please shop my affiliate links below. Thanks so much for your continued support!
