Good Sunday morning all! A simple poppy card for you today! I started with a piece of coconut white card and embossed it using the Wild Roses embossing folder for texture. Next I cut the Stitched Lattice Frame die in both white and black card using the two largest dies in the set to cut frames. I nipped the long sides of the frame and used them as borders sandwiching the black between two whites. This required that I cut two frames in white to have enough pieces to create the border. Next, I cut several of the Exquisite Poppies (enough to create three flowers of varying sizes.) I spritzed them all with water and crumpled them. I let them dry then assembled the flowers. I added black centres and matching pearls. I seated all three flowers at the junction of my border and added Olive Branch accents cut out of white card and black metallic lynx. I cut the sentiment from the Happy Birthday Shadow Box in both white and black and shadowed it before adding it to the upper portion of the card. I completed the card with white, red and black mats. The finished dimensions are 6 3/4" x 7 1/2" in size.
