Buttercups and Daisies

We have plenty of these in our lawn - especially the buttercups. Not much in the way of dandelions though - the rabbits see to that!

This is one of the cards from my most recent class at my local craft shop. One of the ladies was a little worried when she saw all the flowers, but they are really simple to make - the trickiest part is getting them all to stay in place whilst you stick them to the card!

The daisies are just two layers of a Woodware 1" daisy punch stuck together, with a 1/4" circle of yellow crushed velvet card for the centre. After assembling the flower, we sponged a little hint of pink onto the tips of the petals with a sponge dauber.

The buttercups are an EK Success medium Retro Flower punch, with a very finely fringed and rolled strip of card for the centre. The leaves are a Woodware 1" Oak Leaf punch.

The background is stamped in Versamark with a flourish stamp.

I made a little matching tag as well.
