Spellbinders | Gerber Daisy

Hello there, today I have a card to share with you using the new Gerber Daisy & Ladbugs Etched Dies from the Painter's Garden Collection by Susan Tierney-Cockburn. Gerber Daisies, or Gerberas, as they are known here in the UK, are one of my favourite flowers. I am not sure why, but I always think of them as  happy flowers!

I started off my card by die cutting the Spellbinders Gerber Daisy & Ladybugs Etched Dies (minus the ladbybugs!) from white cardstock. I added ink blending to the pieces using Distress Inks. I used Picked Raspberry and Seedless Preserves for the pink flower and Mustard Seed, Dried Marigold and Spiced Marmalade for the yellow flower. 

For the leaves, I used Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn. The flower centres were cut from Spellbinders Onyx Cardstock. I shaped and assembled the flowers as per Susan's video (as best as I could!) and then adhered the layers using Bearly Art Glue. They were adhered to a panel of white cardstock (with scoring lines on) using Bearly Art Glue and thin foam tape. 

The panel was adhered to a US A2 sized white card base with more thin foam tape. I then popped the leaves under the flowers and adhered with foam tape also. To finish the flowers, I adhered an few Spellbinders Onyx Color Essentials Gems to the centres. 

The sentiment from the Spellbinders Making Me Smile Sentiments Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die Set was foiled on to white cardstock with Spellbinders Champagne Glimmer Hot Foil Roll, die cut out and then adhered to the card.
