Painted Poppies Birthday Card

Yesterday I received this beautiful Painted Poppies birthday card from my sweet friend Elaine.  It’s clean and fairly simple and I just love it.

Create your own ‘designer series paper’ by stamping multiple images on an 8-1/2″ x 11″ piece of card stock. Then trim it to the size you need for your layer.

These are the supplies used for this card:

Stamping tips:

  • Granny Apple Green card base:  11″ x 4-1/4″, scored at 5-1/2″ and burnished using the Bone Folder.  Burnish = rubbing firmly across the crease with the Bone Folder.
  • Granny Apple Green ‘wreath’: 3″ x 3″ scrap
  • Basic Black layer:  4″ x 5-1/4″
  • Shimmery White layer:  3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″
  • Shimmery White circle: 2″ square scrap
  • Stamp the full sized poppy outline multiple times using the Black Memento ink on the Shimmery White layer.
  • Stamp the “splotch” over the poppies you just stamped using Poppy Parade classic ink.  TIP:  Don’t bother trying to line up the splotch over the poppies.
  • On the Shimmery White scrap, using Black Memento ink, stamp the greeting.  Use the Big Shot to cut out the appropriate sized stitched circle around the greeting.
  • With the Granny Apple Green scrap and the Big Shot, die cut the ‘wreath’ die.
  • Attach the layers as show in the photo, using Snail adhesive on the card front layers and Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach the wreath and the circle layers.
