Flourishes Friday Focus–Gerbera Daisies


Hi, there! Happy Friday! Today’s Flourishes Friday Focus is on a gorgeous set, Gerbera Daisies. I decided to do a little spotlighting for my card. I love the spotlight technique and don’t use it often enough. I just love how it really brings out the details of an image.

I stamped the large image on Classic White cardstock, twice. One I cut out with a Classic Oval Nestabilities die and my Grand Calibur machine. That was my base. For the other copy, I chose where I wanted to color and cut that out with a Standard Circle Nestabilities die and colored it up with these Copic Collections:

Iced Aqua Collection:


Gerbera Daisy Collection:

Gerber Daisy

Poppy Collection:

Sunflower Collection:

Sunflower Collection

Beehive Collection:

New Leaves Collection:

Evergreen Collection:


Then I matted it with red card stock and popped it up directly over the same spot on the base image. Love it! The sentiment was stamped on a flag from my Nested Lacey Pennant Nestabilities with a second layer of red, and tucked up under the bow. I finished it off with THESE leaf trinket pins.

I finished off the inside with another sentiment from the set.



And that’s it for me! Be sure to check out what the rest of the design team has for you today...
