Instructions: Prepare card base from white card stock. The base card measures 7 1/2" by 5 1/2". Cut a mat layer measuring 7" x 5". Adhere 7" x 5" card panel from the pattern paper. Cut out the centre design and pop it up with foam tape. Cut two fleur border basic dies in white card stock. Cut a pattern paper coordinating with the border die and adhere to the mat layer as shown.

Stamp the poppy images with black archival ink and cut with poppy die. Stamp and cut the leaves from Daisy stamp and die. Colour the poppy with red carnation and red geranium inks. Mold and shape on the flower making tool kit.

Cut the styrofoam in half, add some gesso or black colour to cover the white base. Add glue on the top and sprinkle glitter balls. Let it dry. Apply light green acrylic paint. Layer the poppies. Each flower has three big petals and three medium petals. Make a hole in the centre of each petal and snip some cuts in between the petals. Add black pollens to the foam bud and add these to the centre of the poppies. Add some highlight with gesso. Prepare smaller flowers and buds this way. Apply gesso on the edges of the petals.

Cut a spellbinders label die and also cut a frame from the same. Distress the base of the smaller die and add sentiment. Apply some crackle paint on the label frame and sprinkle glitter. Arrange the poppies and leaves on the card. Finish the card by adhering some leaves under the label.
