Prim Poppy

I made this card for the Allsorts 'Poppies or the Colour Red' challenge.  I'm also entering the Seize the Birthday 'CAS' challenge, The Flower Challenge 'A Special Occasion' and Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies.  The card was from my snippets drawer so I'm also making an early visit to the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.

Card blank: 6" x 6" white matt
Dies: Memory Box 'Prim Poppy' and Creative Expressions 'Mini Happy Birthday'
Embossing: X-cut 'Small Polka Hearts' embossing folder
Snippets: Green, Red and white card

I die cut the poppy from both red and green card and the sentiment from red card and set these aside.  I trimmed a square of white card to 3/4" smaller than the card blank before die cutting the sentiment and poppy.  I attached tape across the back of the die cuts on the white square and inlaid the white poppy and sentiment.  I gently removed the sections that would be inlaid in red and green, leaving the white inlaid pieces attached to the tape.  The panel was then embossed with the polka hearts embossing folder.  I layered this panel onto red card before attaching it to the card blank.  I snipped the green poppy to remove the flowers and inlaid it before snipping the red flowers from the other poppy and inlaying them.  To finish I inlaid the sentiment.

What a lovely card Kath - especially poignant for today. So elegant and a great way to inlay the white parts of the poppies and sentiment, carefully remove the pieces that need to be in colour and then replace them. I would never have thought about doing that but it makes so much sense!

Great to see you in the Snippets Playground!
