Floral Corner One with Daffodil

I have used quite a few Spellbinders dies on this card, mixing things up a bit.

The daffodil stamp and the message come from one of the new Creative Expressions "Singles" stamps, which come pre-cut and mounted onto cushion cling. A lot, like this one, also come with a free sentiment. They retail at £4.99. I stamped the image and sentiment using Jet Black Archival ink, onto milk coloured card. I then embossed this with the Cosmic Shimmer detail clear embossing powder from Creative Expressions. I coloured the flower with Distress Markers and a water brush.

I die cut the daffodil using the beautiful Spellbinders Opulent Ovals die set. The sentiment was die cut using one of the dies from the Spellbinders 5 x 7 Elegant Labels Four set. I also used the new Floral Corner One Die D-Lites die set to decorate two corners of the mat under the daffodil image. You get a flower die separate to the corner die, and I used this to decorate the sentiment tag. The ribbon threaded through the tag is Champagne Sheer Wrinkled Edge ribbon.

The metal corners I have used are the Creative Expressions Art Deco Metal Corner Embellishments.

The mat under the daffodil image was cut from a piece of Vintage Gold card. This was then embossed using the Moroccan Mask from That Special Touch.

Happy crafting!


  1. Wow, that's a great and complicated card. May I ask however, you said you did the daffodil using oval dies? How did you do this? Or am I mistaken?

  2. Hello Astrid. Apologies if I have not explained myself properly. After I had stamped and coloured the daffodil image, I used a die from the Spellbinders Opulent Ovals set to die cut the oval image around the daffodil. Tracey xx
