Prior to dropping by here, you may have come from Tesa's wonderful blog. Below is the blog order, just in case you were derailed, sidetracked, rerouted or detoured. (I didn't know there were that many words to say the same thing! lol But then, that's American English)

Here is my May creation, and I wanted it to be bright and cheery to reflect Spring and the coming bright summer. I didn't know until I was linking Lisa's blog to mine, that she and I, out of all the different stamps available, chose the same set to use! Great minds!
This card was very easy to make. The supply list follows the directions.
Cut the base of the card from the striped cardstock, which has a white backing. I used an 8" x 8" pad, used the complete width of the cardstock, and trimmed 2" off one end to make the card 6" tall. I folded it in half the 8" x 8" way making the completed card base 6" tall by 4" wide. I used a corner punch on the corners.
Using the Spellbinders die set Labels 10, I cut a large one from white cardstock, and one the next size smaller in the yellow patterned paper. Adhere together, yellow on top of white, centering. Use dimensionals to apply this to the main card base, centering both directions.
Using the largest of the two stamps in the set HCPC 3325 Daisy Patch Bouquet PreCut Set, stamp one in Memento black ink on white cardstock. Color with the Copics listed below, or your preferred markers. Fussy-cut the image out, including three of the stems on the very outside of the image. Apply this to the center of the raised Label with dimensionals, then glue seed beads to match striped cardstock to flower centers, using white glue that dries clear. I tied a bow using my Bow-Easy, and adhered it centered over the flower stems with ribbon adhesive. Let dry, and your card is ready to cheer someone up!
