I have spent the last week working on Thank You cards for an upcoming card challenge (more details to come), and this one was the first one I worked on. For this card, I knew I wanted to do something with flowers, and after a bit of thought, I broke out a punch and created many of these little daisies in white card stock. Then, I punched out little pink circles for each center and sewed on a tiny clear button over each.
I set my punched blooms aside while I worked on my die cut sentiment. It was a bit tricky cutting down my foam tape to fit the letters, but I popped out each one over some card stock and then framed the entire element with my punched flowers. It's springtime in NYC -- hay-fever city! -- and these daisies are pretty and yet completely pollen free!
