My White & Gold series Daisy Punch

I love Pinterest and  I love browsing and seeing everyone's creativity, and I'm amazed by all the talent that is showcased on Pinterest, while browsing I came across an image of metal floral flowers made of copper and brass and mounted on linen, that was my jumping off point,  so I got my Stampin'Up! punches and kept punching away. This is the first of the five cards I made using white and gold.

I made a tent fold card and for the first layer I used the Brushed metallic cardstock, its 12x12  single sided sheets and it comes in three colours, Bronze, Copper and Gold, you get two of each colour. 

 For the top layer I used whisper white cardstock and used the largest stitched rectangles dies. I wanted the rectangle to be longer as I wanted to have an even spacing all around, so I die cut the top layer about 3/4's of the way lifted the die and moved it about 1/2'' and ran it through the die cutting machine again , this gave me a larger rectangle, the actual size is 5 1/8" but I ended up with a rectangle that was 5 1/2" long. I then used the Subtle 3D embossing folder, to give it that linen look.

I punched two flowers from the larger Daisy punch and four flowers from the medium Daisy punch, I then used the tweezers held the tip of each of the petals and twisted, just to give the flowers some dimension, once I was happy with how they looked, I then stuck the two large flowers and then the smaller flower on top, I did the same for the three smaller flowers, for the centres I used the metallic pearls.

I stamped the stem and leaves using the Band together stamp set with momento tuxedo black ink and used paper snips and fussy cut it. 

I stamped my sentiment from a retired stamp set ( you can use any sentiment) with versamark and applied gold embossing powder and heat set it, I then used the Stitched nested labels dies to cut the sentiment. Now that I had all the pieces ready it was time to put my card together.

I adhered the top layer to the gold layer and then adhered that to the card base, I then glued the stem and the flowers, for the sentiment I added some dimensionals on the back. Below is the card details and the product list.
