Build a Daisy

This card was going to be a birthday card for my sister-in-law, but I just can't part with it at the moment! I love the way it turned out, although the photo doesn't do it justice. I tried scanning it, which I think shows more detail, but I couldn't get it to lay straight in the scanner.

When I came up with this idea, I hadn't realized just how large the daisy would be, but it fits perfectly on the lattice I cut with the Big Shot Lattice die, which gives it a leafy look. There are 20 flower petals which were embossed in white on Whisper White card stock. I stamped the center with Daffodil Delight on the same color card stock, then covered it with Crystal Effects and adding a generous sprinkle of Dazzling Diamonds glitter. Although the designer paper is Pear Pizzazz, the bow is made with Certainly Celery Satin Ribbon, which is a shade lighter than the Pear Pizzazz. You can hardly tell the difference in color. I love the elgant simplicity of this bow. You merely make a loop with a piece of your ribbon. I fasten it in the middle after overlapping and fastening the ends. Glue dots hold it very well. Then I wrap a small piece of ribbon around that loop, beginning and ending on the back. Finally, I made the v-shaped slashes in the ends of another piece of ribbon, attached that to the card and then adhered the bow with another glue dot.
