Sunflowers or Daisys?

I just couldn't wait any longer to play with Spellbinders new Gerbera Daisy die set and Bamboo Trellis 3D Embossing Folder any longer. They are part of the new The Painter's Garden collection by Susan Tierney. And this card is a Slimline Easel card!

Since I love sunflowers I kinda changed to to look a bit more like sunflowers. I'll give you measurements and score lines further down.

You  can see the trellis in the background and I added Glaze 'N Glue to the ladybugs.  I added a few Spectrum AB color essentials gems for a little more bling.

I used their Birthday Unboxing clear stamp set for my sentiments. I love the Happy Birthday font! I powder embossed the Happy Birthday with a detail black powder using my embossing ink.

Here's the side view. The base is VERY easy! You score a full sized piece of card stock on the long side at 5 1/2". Flip. Now score at       3 3/4" and 7 1/4".  Fold your paper to have a mountain, valley, mountain fold. I did double layers (shown in close up) and I make my layers 1/8" difference in size. Therefore, I cut my bottom 3 layers at 2 3/4" x 3 5/8" and my (trellis) layers at 2 5/8" x 3 1/2". You don't have to make layers like I did, just decorate like you want.
