Small Square Blue Daisy Birthday Card


I had this blue daisy die cut left from earlier this week. I embossed the flower detail onto the die cut, then added some color with Prismacolor pencils. It is a small square card (4.25 x 4.25 inches) because I wanted the flower to fill the front of the card.

Bashful Blue (retired) Marina Mist (retired), inks – VersaFine Onyx Black, VersaMark, pencils -Prismacolor Apple Green (PC912), Light Cerulean Blue (PC904), Poppy Red (PC922), die – Essentials by Ellen, embossing powder – Stampendous Detail clear, Stampin’ Up!

  1. At first glance, I thought it was stained glass and thought you were making stained glass cards now. Then I clicked the post and saw the larger image. It is very beautiful Kathy.

    • Oh, giving me credit for way more talent than I have, Lekha!

      • That was my first reaction and in those exact words, when I caught it on the WP reader. I do like your pieces a lot because for me, they stand out in their originality with a quirky, mathematical angle to it. I am not big on mushy, mushy cards. So maybe, that’s it. But, credit is due when it is due.

      • Lekha, you are sweet! Thank you for the compliments. I admit to the quirky, mathematical angle. And I am not big on mushy either. Have a great afternoon!
