You Can't Have Enough Daisies!

Oh oh .... I so love this card (and so does Valerie)!! This is a card we made this past weekend at the Rich Regals and Bold Brights Stamp Club. I must admit, it is one of my very favorites!!! Yikes .. I'm showing favoritism, huh!!

You know I had to use my Sizzix Big Shot, which is a staple item in my stamping life. Can you count how many daisies are on this card? Nine!! But with the Sizzix, it's quick and easy (boy, I've been saying that alot lately, huh). Using the Flower Daisies #2 Die (which has three different size daisies on it), I cut out nine daisies. I layered the daisies, slightly staggering each one. I used one of the Jumbo 5/8" Neutral Brads, which looks perfect in the center of the flower.

Now, one of the things that also excited me about this card was the texture plate that I used on the background. Notice the texture on the Naturals Ivory cardstock. Isn't that too cool??? It is from the Texture Plates Kit #4. I wish you could have seen my face when I ran the cardstock through the Sizzix and saw the texture it created. I was talking to myself (something I do rather frequently), gasping about how absolutely gorgeous it was! Has this ever happened to you? I looked at the texture plate before using it and wondered what it would look like. The texture plate (before use) really didn't impress me whatsoever. But now, they are like my new best friend. I wonder, hey, what can I texture now!??

I'm wondering if you can tell just how much I love this card -- hope you do too!
