Stampin’ Up’s Painted Poppies are fabulous, and it’s no wonder they were featured on the front cover of the 2020 Mini Catalog. Why not CASE one of their samples? And, for today’s card, I did just that!
I began the design with a 2″ banner cut from Peaceful Moments Designer Paper in a green& white stripe. To get the perfect banner cut, I used the Banner Triple Punch, pictured in my Product List.
The background is Whisper White Cardstock, embossed with the Subtle Textured Embossing Folder, and layered on a Thick Whisper White card base.
Next, I stamped the “splotch” from the Painted Poppies Stamp Set in Highland Heather Ink on Whisper White Cardstock (3 times), and used a Poppy Moments Die for cutting. Then, I used a die from the same set to cut three Whisper White “frames.”
TIP: Gluing the “frames” just in the center is sufficient to hold them in place. Plus, the lift on the edges adds dimension.
I used two more dies from the Poppy Moments Die Set: the poppy centers, cut from Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape Cardstock, and the leaves, cut from Old Olive and Pear Pizzazz Cardstock.
The sentiment is from Itty Bitty Greetings, stamped in Gorgeous Grape Ink, and cut with a Stitched So Sweetly Die. For a touch of sparkle, I added some Woven Threads Sequins.
I was inspired by two challenges:
