I wanted to make a cheerful card, so went with Crushed Curry and Cucumber Crush with touches of black. The daisy is die cut using layers of Crushed Curry with one layer of So Saffron. The tips have been sponged in Crushed Curry. I die cut the daisy shape out of the white panel and then offset the flower over it so the black mat would peep through. This gave a nice shadow effect that has added depth to the focal point.
I did originally try adding a small Crushed Curry button and twine bow to the centre but that just looked too busy and detracted from the flower, rather than adding to it.
The card base is stamped using the leaves from Summer Silhouettes, using Crushed Curry onto Crushed Curry.
I've done some decoration on the inside, to match the envelope, but will stamp in either Happy Birthday, or Thanks, when I want to use it. Or maybe even leave it blank to write a note in.
