Painted Poppies Card Set - Part 2

Hi there

I'm back to share the second part of my set of cards made with the Painted Poppies Bundle. This bundle comrprises the Painted Poppies stamp set and the coordinating Painted Labels Dies. Both products are carrying over to the new 2020-21 Annual Catalogue that commences on 3 June 2020. However, the Peaceful Poppies Designer Paper is available until 2 June or while stock lasts.

For this card I have used a white card base and then added a piece of designer paper from the Peaceful Poppies Designer Paper pack to the top section of the card with a strip of the contrasting green stripe as a border. I have cut the swirly circle from the Painted Labels Dies in black as the background for my embellishment. The greeting from the lovely (and retiring) Rare Blessings stamp set was stamped and cropped with a stitched circle die. I finished it with a poppy that was stamped coloured and fussy cut and popped up on the corner of the circle and a sprinkle of Gold Enamel Dots. I think the black circle really makes the card pop.

For this card, I started with a Thick Whisper White card base. I've cut a card-base sized piece of Poppy Parade card stock and dry embossed it with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card base. Next I used a Stitched Rectangle Die to cut a piece of Whisper White the exact length of the card. I start by selecting a die that was the right width and then extended the length by double cutting the piece.  The poppy field image was stamped multiple times across the stitched rectangle with the Stamparatus so I could ensure it was straight and the flowers were coloured with Poppy Parade Blends. A narrow border of black was added to the top edge and then adhered to the card. I cut the scalloped border, extending it to be longer and then cutting a second standard sized piece and they were butted up against the bottom edge. I added the Baker's Twine bow over the join. The greeting from the Peaceful Moments stamp set was stamped in Poppy Parade and cropped with a Stitched Rectangle Die and matted on black to provide a narrow border. I finished with the tiny heart and butterfly in Silver Glimmer.
