Most of you have probably heard of a daisy chain, where you weave the stems of daisies together. My project today is similar, but it is a daisy wreath. Did you know there is a daisy image in the Daisy Lane Stamp Set that doesn't fit the Daisy Punches? I think this image may be slightly neglected in the excitement to use the Daisy Punches with the stamp set.
This daisy wreath card is using the color scheme of Bermuda Bay, Poppy Parade and Whisper White. The secret to a realistic paper wreath is having layers.
Card Base: 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" Poppy Parade Cardstock, scored at 4 1/4".
First Layer: 4" x 5 1/4" Whisper White Cardstock. Place inside the Subtle Embossing Folder and put through a Die Cutting Machine. Tie a double strand of Whisper White Solid Baker's Twine around the bottom and make a bow. Here are some tips for stamping the daisy wreath images.
- Take a Post-it Note and use the 2" Circle Punch on it. Place this circle in the center of the First Layer. This will be a temporary guide to help you make your stamped images somewhat even.
- Ink up the daisy image with Bermuda Bay Ink. Stamp it at the center top, center bottom and the right and left sides of the Post-it Note circle. Clean the stamp.
- Ink up the daisy image with Poppy Parade Ink. Stamp it in between the Bermuda Bay daisies. It is okay if they overlap. Remove the Post-it note.
- On a piece of Whisper White Cardstock, stamp four Bermuda Bay daisies and four Poppy Parade daisies. Use Paper Snips to cut them out. Put Dimensionals on the back side of the daisies. Set them aside.
Second Layer: On a scrap of Bermuda Bay Cardstock, place a small circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies and put it through the Big Shot. Attach to the center of the wreath on the First Layer.
Third Layer: On a scrap of Whisper White Cardstock, stamp the sentiment in Bermuda Bay Ink. Use the 1 1/2" Circle Punch to punch it out. Attach to the Second Layer.
Fourth Layer: To create the layered look of the wreath, attach the four Bermuda Bay daisies and four Poppy Parade daisies one at a time, slightly off-set and slightly overlapping them. Ta-da! You have created a daisy wreath!

Monday and Tuesday of this week, our youngest grandgirl is with us before she starts school on Wednesday. We are sneaking in some time with her cousins today. The older they get, the less often the three of them are able to be together. Two different school districts and three different schools makes it challenging. Thanks for stopping by my blog today! Have a thrilling Tuesday!!!
