Poppies for You

Instructions:

Cut Deluxe Flower Shaping paper to 10 x 7", score and fold at 5" to create the front fold of card base. Cut another piece of the paper to 5 3/4 x 7", score at 5". Attach the 3/4" section to backside of front fold, and this creates the inside of card base. Using from the HCD2-7189 Eyelet Rectangle & Basics Die, diecut the 4th largest plain rectangle at an angle from the front flap of card base. Stamp the poppy image from HCPC-3988 Wild Poppy Bouquet Cling Stamp Set in Rose Madder ink onto scrap paper and then onto bottom right corner of card front. Repeat the same for the top left corner of card front. Sponge over the corner poppy images and surrounding area with Pink Peony ink. Sponge over the poppy images with Rose Madder ink. Then add a touch of the Sunflower ink. Accent with the Fern Green ink in areas next to the pink as shown. Lightly sponge the edges of card base with Rose Madder ink.

Using from the same rectangle die set, use the 3rd largest plain rectangle die to die cut the green paper with poppy border (bottom right of sheet 3A) of the Wild Poppy paper collection. Use the yellow dauber along with Dries Clear glue and dab over the panel, then sprinkle with Rajni’s Crystal Clear. Repeat the step, this time using Mustard glitter. Attach this panel directly onto the card flap behind the rectangle opening. Next use the 3rd and 4th largest plain rectangle die to die cut slim border frames from the Deluxe Flower Shaping paper. Die cut the same from the black paper (sheet 11B) of the paper collection. You’ll need 2 of each one. Layer the 2 same ones on top of each other for extra thickness. Sponge the white frame with Rose Madder ink and then a touch of Sunflower ink. Dab the frames with Dries Clear glue and sprinkle with Mustard glitter. Dab around the top left and bottom right sections of card with Dries Clear Glue and sprinkle with Rajni’s Crystal Clear. Repeat using the Mustard glitter. Attach the black frame around the opening of card, then attach the coral frame as shown. Using from the HCD1-7201 Ticket and Tags Die, diecut the long eyelet border from Deluxe Flower Shaping paper. Attach sections of this border onto the top and bottom of card as shown. Trim off excess border.

Stamp two of the 3 largest size poppy petals and 4 of the smallest size, from HCPC-3986 Wild Poppy Cling Stamp Set in Rose Madder ink on pink cardstock. Diecut with coordinating dies. Stamp one of each size poppy petals from HCPC-3986 Wild Poppy Cling Stamp Set in Fern Green ink onto light green cardstock and fussy cut the centers. Stamp the ‘Thinking of You’ sentiment in Fern Green ink onto sheet 3A from paper collection. Fussy cut each word and set aside. Stamp the poppy vase from HCPC-3988 Wild Poppy Bouquet Cling Stamp Set onto Flower Shaping cardstock in Fern Green ink. Stamp two of the poppy spray HCPC-3987 Wild Poppy Accents Cling Stamp Set onto the same cardstock in Fern Green ink. Diecut with coordinating dies.

Sponge the poppies and leaves with the following inks. For the poppies, sponge the centers and the edges of petals with Rose Madder ink. Next, add a touch of Carnation red in the center of poppies. Lastly add a light touch of Sunflower over petals. Apply a thin film of Crystal Lacquer over the petals and let dry. Trim off the leaves from the rest of the images, then sponge with Vivid Chartreuse, Leaf Green and a touch of Sunflower. Sponge the green poppy centers with Leaf Green. Apply a thin film of Crystal Lacquer over leaves and green poppy centers.

Use the Wild Poppy Shaping Mold to shape the poppy petals. Use the shaping stylus from Deluxe Flower Shaping kit to finish shaping the petals, leaves and poppy centers. Layer the poppies together using hot glue. Attach the green centers into the middle of petals with hot glue. Use Dries Clear glue around green centers and sprinkle with Power Outage prills. Next, you’ll need the EZ Stem Floral wire in the medium green shade. Trim off 3 shorter sections of wire, so that there are only 5 stems left. You can shorten stem length as needed. Bend a small section at the end of each wire, and this is where you’ll attach each of the poppies. Use hot glue to attach the poppies to the stems. Now attach the poppy spray onto the inside bottom right of card with hot glue. Use double dots to attach the front flap of card to the one behind it. Attach the leaves as shown. Use hot glue to attach the ‘Thinking of You’ sentiment as shown.
