Daisies gate-fold card

This card was designed by my Guest Stamper and sister, Cindy Rigel. She traveled with us on our recent trip to Cancun. She chose these colors to reflect some of the bright colors we saw in the clothing and art in Mexico.
This card has a base of Cameo Coral , layered with two panels of Gable Green. They were distressed on the edges and attached to the two sides of the gate fold card. The little flower design was stamped with VersaMark on the green layers as well as inside the card. That image is part of the Delightful Decorations stamp set.
A belly band was cut from a piece of turquoise designer paper. It holds the card closed and slips off to open it up.
The gorgeous flower was made from the Sizzix die cut Daisies 2. Each flower piece was sponged on the petal edges with Cameo Coral ink before layering to make the flower. A Gable Green center was punched out with the 1/2" circle punch and attached to the card with a dimensional. The center was glittered with a 2-way glue pen and Dazzling Diamonds glitter. This was such a fun and easy card to make!
Thanks for stopping by today. Hope your day is as bright as a daisy!
