Upsy Daisies

Daisies are delightful and so fresh and fun. That's what inspired me to make this card for a friend. But daisies don't tell so I won't either.

I cased this card from Lisa . As soon as I saw it I had to have the Upsy Daisy die from My Favorite Things. When I checked out the site, it was out of stock. Bummer. But I have to say that I asked to be notified when it was available, and sure enough within a few days they did. I ordered it the same day and it arrived in 3 days. How's that for service? I was pleased.

 I actually made this card so that it can be recycled, by making two envelopes and including a corner pocket on the inside left.

I used MS photo corner punch so that the verse could be changed, then I included a piece of card stock to write a personal message. I explained that the card was made with her in mind, but if she wanted to recycle it she could, that's why I included an extra envelope and didn't sign the card.

I think it's fun and versatile. What do you think?

  1. By Jove, I think she's got it!

    What a great idea~ up cycling daisies.

    THIS is such a novel idea and such a GRAND IDEA, too.

    I don't know if this is being 'done' yet.

    How do you do it?

    How do you find your niche market? There's (practical) magic there, of that I am certain.

    Hmm. . . how to give it boots? Hmmmmmmm.

    We'll have to ruminate on this one.

    The card is lovely.
    The idea HUGE.
    The 'audience' will be enthralled.
    It's 'green.'
    It's keen.

    By Jove, I think she's got it!

  2. Wow! This card is beautiful! But, I have to tell you...if someone sent it to me, there's NO WAY I'd recycle it! I'd want to keep it forever!

  3. Recycle it - no way! Those daisies are just beautiful (my favorite flowers). Very beautiful card. Thanks for visiting my blog today. I just love Cheryl.
