Happy Poppy Fields

Hello, friends, Mindy here to share with you a special card of remembrance and thoughts of you.

Poppies are one of my favorite flowers, and according to Wikipedia poppy flowers are a symbol of remembrance.

One of the new Stacy Stamps Poppieshas a single flower stamp, and a cluster of flowers corner edge stamp in the same package. Here where I live in So. Texas the bright red poppies are one of our wildflowers that start to bloom in late April in fields and along the roadways. I stamped the single flower on a sheet of white card stock, and using my  markers, colored in the flower and leaves. I fussy cut around the image, and highlighted the edges with a Wink of Stella gold glitter marker. 

To prepare the background, I stamped the Wood Texture Cover-a-Card stamp on a sheet of white card stock using Antique Linen Distress Ink. I then took the Claudette Frame from PoppyStamps, and ran the die and stamped paper through my Cuttlebug machine to get my wood look frame. 

I adhered it to the card front with 1/4" Scor-Tape, and used Large Joy! Foam Pads to add dimension to the poppy flower. 

I the tied a strip of twine around the card twice, and tied the ends in a square knot. Then using a Spellbinder's A2 Matting Basics A die, I stamped the Thinking of You sentiment and colored it in with the Wink of Stella gold glitter pen. There is a Wink of Stella clear glitter pen available at Classy Cards 'n Such online store.

I added some of the Black Pearl Pen from Viva Decor, in the center of the flower, and White Baby Pearls around the frame and sentiment strip for a little more bling.

Why not remember a friend by making them a hand-stamped card, and sending it today?  They will really appreciate the thought!
