Poppies, poppies – love these poppies! Painted poppies & the Poppy Moments Dies are not new items in the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. But… they are – gorgeous – and fun to use. And today’s card features these items – and more.

Poppies Congratulations.1

This card uses the new 2021-2023 In Color Shimmer Vellum for die cuts on the leaves. Unfortunately the shimmer doesn’t really show in the photo – but it’s there! And the Vellum color is Soft Succulent. It is paired with regular vellum as well. Let’s do a step by step that will easily share all the elements of this card.

  • The card base is Sahara Sand card stock 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2
  • Layer a panel of Neutrals 6×6 card stock in Sahara Sand to the card front. It is 4 14 x 5 1/2.
  • Die cut sections of the poppy from Basic White card stock: the poppy outline and the two layered centers. These use the Poppy Moments Dies.
  • Die cut the flower itself and the larger portion of the leaves in regular vellum.
  • Die cut the leaf embellishment using the 2021-2023 In Color Shimmer Vellum in Soft Succulent.
  • Color the backside of the vellum flower using Dark Cherry Cobbler Blends. Adhere the flower together with dimensionals. Adhere flower to the card base with a single dimensional
  • Using very little liquid glue, adhere the leaf parts together. Trim one of the leaf sections in two parts. Adhere under the poppy with small amounts of liquid glue
  • Stamp the sentiment using the Peaceful Moments stamp set and Memento Black ink. Die cut with the Ornate Frames Dies. Adhere to the card front with dimensionals
  • Add 2021-2023 In Color Jewels in Evening Evergreen and the card front is done!
Poppies Congratulations.2
  • For the inside of the card…
    • adhere a strip of the Neutral 6×6 DSP to the left of a Basic White panel 4 x 5 14
    • Stamp the poppy from Painted Poppies stamp set in Memento Black ink and color with Stampin Blends: Dark Cherry Cobbler & Dark Soft Succulent.
    • Stamp the sentiment from Peaceful Moments stamp set in memento black ink
    • Adhere panel to the inside of the card – VOILA!
Poppies Congratulations.3

For the envelope I stamped the very same poppy as the inside of the card on the front of the envelope: Painted Poppies stamp set + Memento Black ink, then colored with Stampin Blends Dark Cherry Cobbler & Dark Soft Succulent. The flap was covered with a strip of Sahara Sand Card Stock & more of the Neutrals 6×6 DSP in Sahara Sand and trimmed to fit.

Such a fun card and I do love these poppies! I like having a congratulations card on hand at all times – perfect for many celebrations. And – this could be used for a man as well. Because of the background paper it is not particularly feminine – and that’s good thing 🙂
