Friendly flowers …

I had some cardstock on my craft table from which I’d just cut out flower daisies using the SU die and my big shot.  

It got me to thinking about the Less is More challenge this week, which is to make a single layer card with just ink…



I used pink pirouette to sponge through the aperture left in the cardstock by the die, turned and sponged again.  I added more ink at the bottom using the same technique with a scrap of card and an edge punch, stamped the sentiment in early espresso ink over the daisy image and I was done!

It was a simple card to make, but I love it.

I really enjoyed the challenge this week – thanks girls!


And thanks for dropping by today

    • Hi Sally,
      I used the waste card that was left after I’d cut out the daisy shapes with the die, and sponged through the hole where the daisy had been.
      I hope that makes sense! 😀
      Thanks for your question.
