Pushing up daisies?

Debra Burgin Daisy birthdayCertainly not the sentiment I want to convey with this birthday card!!!  This is a design that’s been nagging at me for a few days — so badly that I got out of bed last night to work on some variations.

Can you see all the dimension in those little flowers?  I put them on a Paper Piercing Pad and pressed a stylus in a circular pattern into the center of each flower, creating the cup shape.  I used a tiny dot of Multipurpose Adhesive on the card front, then dropped the flower unto the glue, holding it in place with the stylus.  After just a few seconds, the flower was firmly adhered and I could affix the pearl.

    I need to remember that stylus technique for adding dimension to flat flower. So simple, yet it works wonders!
