Good Sunday Morning all! How about some nice vibrant poppies to wake up to on a Sunday morning! I started by creating a white on white background and cutting the Swiss Border four times into a piece of coconut white card. Two facing each other at the top of the card and two facing each other at the bottom of the card. I backed it with white card for a tonal look. I wrapped a length of red frilly edged ribbon around the card and taped the ends to the back. Next I stamped the Poppies Daydream Stamp To Die For in black on white card. I used a combination of Distress markers and coloured pencils to colour it. I cut it out with the large oval die from the Geneva set and mounted foam on to the back. I attached it atop of the ribbon in the centre of the card. I stamped a sentiment and cut it out with the smaller die in the Swiss Tag and seated it on the decorative Swiss tag die. I added it to the upper area of my stamped image with foam. Finally, I tied a double bow and added two matching stick pins and a white crystal sparkler to match. I completed the card with a pierced mat, a thin red and black mat and a final white mat. The finished dimensions are 8" x 8" in size.
