I was so busy in the upper studio making some Christmas gifts – quilted casserole covers – that I almost forgot to post today’s card. I could not find the theme for this week’s challenge at Stamping Bella, and it looks like a lot of people didn’t either as there was only a few entries, so no Bellariffic Card today. So instead I decided to use another favourite memory die, the poppy. Here’s the card I came up with.
I die cut the poppy from a black piece of cardstock. I took a piece of red cardstock and rounded three corners and punched them with a Fiskar’s corner punch. Oh, oh trouble. The lower left corner didn’t punch properly and I hated to waste the cardstock. So time to get creative! I ended up really rounding the third one and added a die cut swirl (Cuttlebug)….and it turns out I really liked it being asymmetrical like that. Then I glued it to a black card base and ran a gold Bic pen around the edges. Then I placed the black die cut poppy off-centred to the right and outlined it with the gold pen. Then I stamped three silhouette black butterflies and the sentiment. A quick and simple card to make.
Have a great weekend everyone.
