Daisy, Daisy Birthday Wishes

Morning blogland, here I am with a nice bright birthday card to cheer up the day.  This is another Papermill Direct DT card using the the most recent special offer post box red card.

'Post Box' Red 240gsm A4 card

£2.00 for a pack of 20  

A saving of over 60%
compared to the usual cost of £2.75 for 10 sheets!

I used the special offer post box red to make a tri-fold card with two equal panels and a slightly wider back panel.  Using some papers from my scrap box I matted red dots paper onto the back center panel and green dots paper onto the front inside fold, a strip of green dots was added to the inside back panel.  An aperture was cut from the center panel using a Spellbinder Nestabilities die.  The flowers used to embellish the card were cut using the Tim Holtz tatty floral die, edged with spiced marmalade DI and a spotty Docraft button was added to each flower.  The sentiment stamps are from Oak House Studio, first time I have used them and they stamp beautifully.  A half round was cut halfway down the back panel and a daisy attached over it to make the closure.

Using the post box red again I made an Easter goodies set, chocolate bar wrap, goody bag and Easter card. The image is from Pink Petticoat (not sure whether it is still available but there are some fabulous papers and digi images available). The dies used were again Spellbinder Nestabilities for the bag and card and a Spellbinders Edgeabilities for the choc bar wrap.  The images were coloured with Promarkers and glamour dust added for sparkle.

This set will go away ready to give to the grandchildren at Easter, will make a few more over the next month with different colours and images.  I am not a chocolate lover but those eggs are looking very tempting, will I last out until Easter, or will someone have to share with grandma?
