My card has been created for a friend of mine who is celebrating her birthday today. As she lives on acreage, I decided to go with colours that best represent the bush in Australia – Green, Gold & Brown. I’ve never used these colours together & really like the effect they have created.
On the spur of the moment, I decided to try & use a Stampin’ Up! Wheel somehow in the design.
Base Card – Daffodil Delight – 8 1/4″ x 4 1/8″ or 21cm x 15cm – scored in the middle & folded in half
Layer 1 – DSP – 5 1/2″ x 3 3/4″ or 14cm x 9.5cm
Layer 2 – Old Olive – 4 1/2″ x 1 5/8″ or 11.5cm x 4cm
Layer 3 – Whisper White – 4 3/8″ x 1 1/2″ or 11cm x 3.5cm
Layer 4 – Old Olive – 3 1/8″ x 2″ or 8cm x 5cm
Layer 5 – Whisper White – 3″ x 1 7/8″ or 7.5cm 4.5cm

Inking my Wheel, I ran it over the long piece of Whisper White Cardstock, ensuring that the image was up the correct way, which meant that I had to run the wheel across the Card 3/4 times, ensuring coverage was all over.
Grabbing my Blender Pen & a Stampin’ Up! Marker – Daffodil Delight, I coloured the flower from the wheel. As I didn’t want this part of the card to be the main focal point, I left it as is. This piece was then adhered to the longer piece of Old Olive Cadstock with Snail Adhesive.
I stamped 3 large flower images with Daffodil Delight onto Whisper White Cardstock & 3 using Soft Suede. These were cut out prior to attaching to the card with Snail Adhesive for the front flower & Stampin’ Up! Dimensionals for the back 2 flowers. All 3 smaller flower images were adhered to the middle of the larger flowers with Snail Adhesive.
I run a piece of Satin Ribbon across the bottom part of the DSP, tucked ends under, tied a knot & adhered the whole lot to the Base Card – Daffodil Delight with Snail Adhesive.
The sentiment was stamped onto a scrap piece of Whisper White Cardstock in Old Olive Ink, punched using the Large Oval Punch, adhered to a piece of Daffodil Delight piece which had been punch with the Scallop Oval Punch & finally to the card with Snail Adhesive.
I popped 3 Pearls into the centre of each small flower to finish
