Oops--a-Daisy ~ Using designer paper squares as a background!

This cute card was created with the Cheerful Daisies stamp set from Stampin' Up. I stamped the 3 daisy images on Basic White cardstock, and brushed on some minimal shading to the daisies using a Grey Granite Stampin' Blend. I then die cut the daisies using the Cheerful Daisies Dies, as well as a few sprigs and leaves which were die cut from Basic White cardstock.

  I colored the sprigs and leaves with a combination of light and dark Granny Apple Green and Old Olive Stampin' Blends markers. It's not really coloring, it's just flicking the side of the brush tip over the die cuts.

Using Glorious Gingham Designer paper I cut 2 - 1 inch strips from the side of one sheet.  I then cut the strips at 1 inch increments until I had 8 - 1 inch squares.
I haphazardly placed the squares across the middle section of a 5 1/4 x 4 section of Basic White cardstock. I attached that layer to a Berry Blast card base 
( * 1/2 x 5 1/2 , Scored @ 4 1/4).

I attached the medium sized daisy using glue to the card front first. 
I placed the remaining 2 daisies using dimensionals, in the preferred positions.
Using glue I added the sprigs and leaves to the daisy focal point. 

I stamped the "Oops-a-Daisy" sentiment in the top left corner of the card.

I added a little Wink of Stella to the daisies, and used some Dusty Rose Pops of Color to create some fun dots for added interest on the card front.

The inside of the card is another 5 1/4 x 4 panel of Basic White cardstock, and a
 3/4 x 4 strip of the same Glorious Gingham designer paper.  Stamp the inside with a desired sentiment. 
Don't forget a coordinating envelope, such as: the same Designer paper decorating the envelope flap and perhaps a small daisy image on the envelope front.

I hope you have enjoyed this card and that it has given
 you some creative inspiration! 

Happy Crafting!!
