Daisy Pals

What do Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron and Bashful Blue have in common? They were the three colors that were selected for the Pretty Pals Challenge #33! This challenge also included a twist…use a punch. Since I firmly believe that the Bigz Daisies #2 die can create flowers of any color that can be used on any color card, I set out to prove it my theory.
  • A standard card base was made from Whisper White card stock and scored at the top.
  • A layer of So Saffron textured card stock was then added to the card base.
  • A strip of Bashful Blue textured card stock was cut to width and punched with the Scallop Border Punch. It was adhered to the card base as illustrated.
  • Whisper White ribbon was positioned at the top edge of the blue strip.
  • Bashful Blue 1/4″ Grosgrain Ribbon was threaded through a Ribbon Slide from the Hodgepodge Hardware collection and layered on top of the Whisper White ribbon.
  • The Bashful Blue “ribbon strip” was then attached to the card base.
  • Pumpkin Pie card stock was passed through the Big Shot, using the Daisies #2 die. (Tip: To create fullness, I actually created two sets of flowers.) After the flower was assembled, a brad from the Hodgepodge Hardware collection was added to the center to add interest. The daisy was then attached to the card base.
