I thought I would switch it up a bit with that greeting, LOL. I wanted to make a card for two people that are special to me in my life, so this is how this card got started. I needed a thank you card for my MIL. She gave me a little birthday check and I was taught to say thank you and she likes to know what I did with the money. I was also making a card for a special friend I have never met in person but talked to often. He is a really sweet guy and near the same age as my own son. He feels often like my son and I truly love his talent and gifts, but that card will not be appearing for y'all but will be special just for him.
I started with the picket fence and remembering the huge Daisies that my mom used to have and how they seemed to me to be wavy hello in the wind at 10. Yeah I do a lot of remembering when I was young, that seems to be the way it is as you get older. Then I thought of that wonderful show I used to watch on TV. It was called Please don't eat the Daisies. I think my favorite part was watching the big dog tromp around in the daisies and mess them up. I do remember the show but not much. So that is where this idea for this card was born from. Yes, I know a long way to go for the card but I got to it finally.;)
Read the instructions first before putting the card together as I jumped the gun on putting on the eyes, sorry about that.
Glue the box form together at the tab then center the fence pieces onto the box form. The fence pieces should be glued with the box edge lining up with the top rung on the fence. Do this to all sides till you have a little fenced box. Glue the flowers and centers to the extra flower pieces then glue those to the one matching the center piece for the card. This is to add stability to the center piece. Glue the flowers with the tabs facing toward the back of the fence in the inside. to make sure the card will fold flat, fold it each way flat to the right and to the left. If a side pops out of place adjust it down a bit. You will need to make sure the flower leaves fit between the rungs of your fence. Choose your sign. I made three that I used my silhouette sketch pens to write on the cards. You can use a stamp if you like and it will fit. I made an extra sign to put onto the front you can use it to write on or stamp on, or you can stamp or write onto the single sign. The extra is for stability if you so desire.
