Friends: the masterpiece of nature (R.W. Emerson)

I generally do not begin a card and base it around the background paper. I'm a stamper first. With this card, though, the opposite happened in the creation process. I went to my scrapbook store for some card stock that I'd run out of and of course just had to poke around the shop to see what was new. This Daisy D's paper jumped off the shelf into my hand. I love it.

Now...what to do with the beautiful Daisy D's paper? I'm not sure if this is what I intended when I started this card but the creation process and the outcome don't always walk hand in hand when I make a card.

Anyway, here is a little something I whipped up this afternoon.

Paper is by Daisy D.
Tag sentiment is a stamp from a retired Stampin' Up! set called Nellie the Nest Lady.
I used my cuttlebug on the punched photo corners and stitched them down. (I think when I stitched them the presser foot on my sewing machine flattened the embossing...oh well.)
A little prima flower on the tag and some ribbon and....there you go!

This is for a good friend who I've been thinking about a lot lately. I hope she'll like it.


  1. I absolutely LOVE Daisy D paper, and I think I have some of every single pattern (lol), but I hate to use it because then I know it will be GONE! This card is simply outstanding. It's beautifully designed, and your friend will be honoured to receive it.

  2. Jennifer, this so so so pretty. I love the colors and the whole layout. Your friend will love it, I'm sure.

    BTW, I'm so glad you are now a blogger! It's so fun to read the background info about a card or a technique. Good going, girl!

  3. Jennifer, this is lovely. That paper is really striking and you were so right to take it home with you.

  4. Very, very beautiful! Just wonderful elements altogether!!

  5. What a sweet card. Love the vintagey paper and the sewing is always a huge plus!

  6. What a beautiful card!

  7. This is outstanding - I just LOVE this kind of paper - it must be fab to work with it!


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a comment. I truly appreciate them.
