Daffodils for Mum (posted by Claire)

Good morning, Claire here with a sunny card made using stamps from Spring Bird Daffodil, one of this month's beautiful new releases. As soon as I saw these stamps I couldn't wait to colour this image as I love daffodils, they are always such a welcome sight after a long winter.


I stamped the images on smooth white card and coloured them with Graph'It markers before die cutting them. I stamped the sentiment using Bamboo Leaves Memento ink and then inked around the edges with Squeezed Lemondade distress ink.

I made the easel card using craft card, popping my die so that it overlapped the fold and running it through my die cutting machine in an embossing sandwich. This creates an embossed effect slightly larger than the die cut shape so you can cut it out and layer up your image.


To prop the easel up I decoupaged the daffodils and added a little green bow topped with a pearl.

Thanks for visiting today

  2. The kraft card base provides a super frame for the whole design with your little pearly green bow lifting it to another level of real opulence. It's such a lovely gift for Mother's Day & I particularly like the way that propped up all you see is the sentiment with the bow yet as you open the card the decoupaged daffodil appears.
