When I did some research on African Daisies, I fell in love with this particular example that has a blend of pink, purple and orange! I decided that I wanted to try to duplicate it! I did use a sparkle pen on the finished flowers, so it reflected a bit in the pic, but in real life, they look really similar! So I am happy with how they turned out. Keep reading if you want to know how I made my card. 😊


ALL SUPPLIES ARE LISTED & LINKED TO ALTENEW FOR PURCHASE BELOW!

HERE ARE THE STEPS TO MAKE THIS CARD:

  • Cut a piece of white cardstock to measure 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ for the background panel.
  • Run this panel through a die cutting machine with the Woven Basket 3D Embossing Folder.
  • Back a large piece of white cardstock with a Double-Sided Adhesive Sheet.
  • ,Use the main die in the set as a pattern and lightly draw around it with a pencil.
    • Make 3 of these large circles for each flower you want to make.
  • Blend inks within this larger circle, making three concentric circles of purple, pink, and orange.
    • I used Hydrangea, Pinkaliscious, and Autumn Blaze Crisp Dye Inks.
    • In addition, do the same thing with the small bud, but blend the colors from the bottom to the top of the bud shape.
  • Die cut all of the flower layers out, remove the release paper, and adhere them together according to the included Layering Guide.
  • Choose a piece of blue and a piece of green patterned paper from the Altenew Blends Paper Pack & trim them to measure 3 3/4″ x 5 1/2″.
  • Place these 2 pieces on top of each other and cut a swerve to act as a mound of grass. You want to cut through the blue as well, because after cutting, these two pieces will fit together exactly at the seam.
    • Use liquid glue to adhere the 2 pieces to an extra piece of cardstock cut to 3 3/4″ x 5 1/2″.
  • Also cut the flower stems from the same gradient green patterned paper.
  • Use liquid glue to attach the flowers and stems to the blue/green panel.
  • Add a strip of Graph Die Cut washi tape to resemble a white picket fence across the bottom of the panel.
  • Stamp a sentiment onto white cardstock and die cut with the smallest tag from the Terrific Tags Die set. Adhere it to the fence with foam tape.
  • Adhere the flower panel to the background panel with foam tape for dimension, and you’re all done!

    Such a great idea to post a picture of the real flower you used for inspiration. Mother Nature sure knows how to color, doesn’t she? Beautiful card.

    Great design share. I’ve looked at the washi, but wasn’t sure how to use. This is a great sample. I think this would make a great mini calendar design.

    I really like the blending you did on each flower. The washi tape really ground the flowers. Beautiful!
