Daisies Friend Easel Card

Created this Easel style card being in an artsy mood with a Daisies theme for a friend that was due a card in the mail to cheer her up/encourage her.

Cut yellow cardstock for Easel card base 4 1/4" x 11", scored in middle at 5 1/2" and scored one more time at 2 3/4".

Used Simon Says Stamp Rectangle die to cut white cardstock giving it a stitched look. Stamped Stampendous Daisies on white cardstock using Ranger black ink. Masked the flowers and used Tim Holtz Distress Ink & markers for background. Colored the Daisies with TH marker, paint & Stampin' Up marker. Used a Wink of Stella clear pen on the Daisies centers. Stamped My Craft Spot 'Friend' word & sentiment. Used Kraft cardstock for base/mat. Attached the Kraft cardstock with Daisies onto the yellow cardstock. Embossed a strip of white cardstock with a Daisies embossing border. Attached the white embossed strip on yellow cardstock. Used TH marker on centers of embossed Daisies. Used Wink of Stella clear pen on the embossed Daises centers.
