Two for One!

Hi Everyone

Todays video tutorial shows you how to take a card design or element you like and use it to make another card……or more!!!


I used stamps from the brand new Da Vinci (DAV1-L) stamp set to create my cards today and you will see how I made this cute daisy panel in the video.  I knew I wanted to focus entirely on this lovely stamped image so I framed it to create this elegant card.

 Although on the video I show you how to make an inner using a quote stamp that comes with this set I thought at the time this design would make a great card for sending a note to someone to say thanks or just to let them know you are thinking about them.  Thinking ahead to Christmas you could make a set of these cards with different colour daisies and stamp a few matching envelopes, tie them up with a bow and you have a lovely gift for a friend or a stocking filler for your Mum!

I loved the little daisy tile so much I just had to take it one step further…….


Check out the tutorial to see how I expanded on the original idea to create this card.  I even coloured and stamped my ribbon to match!

  1. I had to cut a mask for my entry in the challenge but it created too much of a halo, and it took me a while to get it right! Yours worked brilliantly first time, love the clean design of these cards. Thanks for the video.
