Hi in the Daisies

I really really was not going to purchase the Daisies Die. Seriously! However, after seeing one card that used this die, I was hooked. Matter of fact, after getting the die, I sat and cut out a bunch of daisies from scrap cardstock and have been just playing with them. Such fun!

This is another card that we did at the Canvas Cuts class. Look in the middle of the flower and you'll see the Canvas Cut with the "hi" rub-on. Too cute, huh! Well, there is a story to this. When planning this class, I wanted to be able to use the rub-ons on the Jumbo Neutral Brads. When I started creating samples, there was no way that rub-on would .. well, rub-on to the brad! What's up with that!!! So, I did the next best thing and attached it with a Dimensional. Some time later, I had a moment when I thought, hey, what if I sanded the Jumbo Brad? Woo hoo, it worked!!! So, during the class, we actually adhered the rub-on to the brad. So, now you know that trick without having to spend too much time figuring it out! To curl the ends of the daisies, I just used a pen to curl them -- it was really quite easy. Below is a list of items and measurements used to create this project.
