Want to know how to make a tri fold greeting card with daisy punches? How about one that takes its colour inspiration from the Mosaic Mood specialty designer paper? Actually paper that just didn’t “do it” for me – until now!
The Most Popular Bundle So Far!
Did you know the Daisy Lane bundle has been THE most popular bundle in the new Annual Catalogue? It sure has caught YOUR attention. So how about I showcase it for you as my Product of the Week?
The Daisy Lane stamps were part of our registration at Stampin’ Up!’s biannual OnStage event in April. What an awesome treat! Not only does it perfectly coordinate with our existing Daisy punch, it gives us brand new options with the medium punch and beautiful headline and smaller font sentiments.
I thought it was so fun in fact, I used this bundle as the basis of my first ever Comin’ Up Daisies Kreativity Kit Klass. I had a great response to my classic Night of Navy and Crumb Cake designs and the klass kits are on their way to all the participants. Now if you missed out on that, don’t worry, you can still get my PDF full of ideas to craft on your own at home.
Isn’t it fun? Earthy, pretty and a bit unexpected all at the same time.
Ok, I’ve got a confession 🤭. I really didn’t like this paper when we got it at OnStage. In fact I didn’t even open it up right away. But I was doing a virtual card class with my Kreative Kanuck team a week or so later and wanted them to be able to play with new stuff. So I needed to be able to share among a few folks and the DSP was all I had enough of.
So I opened it up. And KAH-BAM! It knocked my socks off! You GOTTA see how pretty this is in person! Tons of dimension, cool colour combos and shine, shine, shine! Here are all the patterns:
OK you’re thinking, where’s the shine, right? Well, take a wee gander at this guy and maybe it will give you a hint of just how special this stuff is!
A mix of glossy and matte all in the same pattern. And gleaming hummingbirds, roses, butterflies and pretty leaves thrown in the mix. I HAD to start designing!
How to Make a Tri Fold Greeting Card with Daisy Punches
I first cut one piece of the Terracotta Tile mosaic paper into a 4″ x 12″ strip, scoring it at 4″ and 8″.
Then I cut three Whisper White panels 3 15/16″ wide x 4″ tall and stamped them all individually and randomly with the smaller daisy in Crushed Curry, Mint Macaron and Terracotta Tile.
Note: While I purposely cut my panels first and then stamped, you could also take a 4″ x 11 13/16″ strip, stamp it all and then cut it into three 4″ x 3 15/16″ pieces. DESIGN TIP: Since the Mosaic Mood paper has the thicker shiny parts, I found if I didn’t separate out the inside panels, the card was just a bit too bulky.
Next I cut along the edge of the curved mosaic design on the front only of the folded card, creating a scalloped edge. IMPORTANT TIP: Make sure your piece of designer paper has the design curving towards the TOP as you are looking at the front of the card otherwise the scallop will not arch as it does in mine. I hemmed and hawed about cutting the third back piece also along the mosaic curves but at the last minute decided against it.
Then I glued the White panels to the inside of the card and stamped the front of the card with “Friend”.
Here’s what the inside looks like.
Decorating with Daisy Punches
- Stamp the large daisy once in Terracotta Tile and once in Crushed Curry on Whisper White scraps. Punch out with the Daisy punch.
- Use the smaller daisy and stamp once in Terracotta Tile. Punch out with the Medium Daisy punch.
- Punch two sets of Mint Macaron leaves with the Leaf Punch.
- Optional: Use your bone folder to create some indented lines on the leaves to mimic leaf veins.
- Layer together with liquid glue in this order from the bottom up: two leaves to the back of the Terracotta Tile large daisy, the large Crushed Curry daisy on top, then the medium Terracotta Tile daisy last.
- Affix to the left middle of the curves with a dimensional.
- Add one small faceted gold gem for some extra shine.
What If You Already Own the Daisy Delight Stamps?
Bonus!! You get a bunch more BANG for your buck! If you already have the Daisy Delight stamps, I think the Daisy Lane bundle deserves a home with you too. The greetings are centred more on friendship and congrats so you’ll get added versatility beyond the gratitude greetings. And you can create a whole garden of different flowers with the multiple leaf and blossom images. And the font choices are excellent sizes for both focal point and smaller well wishes.
Here’s another completely different design from a few weeks ago to show you how easy it is to change up your colours for a new look.
