Daisy Delight Thank You Card

SU! demos get to pre-order items from upcoming new catalogues and I took advantage of that perk and bought some goodies from the new SU! catalogue that will go live on the 1st June!  One of the products I just had to have was the 'Daisy Delight' bundle - a stamp set and a matching daisy punch.  I also got the DSP that goes with the 'Delightful Daisy' suite of products and I got the new In Colors CS and ink pads. There were a few more items in my order as well of course!

Tranquil Tide is one of the new In Colors and it goes beautifully with Mint Macaron.  I came across this lovely card on Pinterest made by Debbie Blake and I made my own CASEd version.  I stamped and punched three daisies, lightly daubed the petal edges with Mint Macaron ink, shaped the daisies, stacked the layers and popped the daisy up.  I stamped, fussy cut and shaped three leaves and placed a faceted gem (available in the new catalogue!) in the centre of the daisy. I have some assorted size daisy punches in my stash and I couldn't resist adding some small Tranquil Tide daisies to a corner of my image panel!  Small rhinestone jewels were added to the daisy centres.

Here's a closer look at the dimensional daisy.  

Here's the inside of the card and the back of the envelope.

Another of my new catalogue purchases was the 'Label Me Pretty' Labels bundle - a label punch and a matching stamp set.  I sometimes put name labels on the front of my envelopes and I did just that for this card.  The pretty circle stamp has words inside ('thank you for caring') but I know I'll get more use out of the stamp without the words so I very, very carefully cut the words out of the circle.  I used to be scared of cutting parts of stamps away but I'm happy to do it now when I know I'll get more use out of the stamp after I've performed surgery!  I popped up the white punched circle.  I love the layered label look!  Obviously I'll have to give this card to someone with a short name!
