This card was one of the Make and Takes we had for Onstage in November. I never made any of my cards that day – but then I usually don’t. It’s the time to chat to people and I have to say it can get a little stressful when you have to make the cards in a short amount of time. So I usually bring them home to make.
I only managed to complete the card this week. I changed it up a little to what it was meant to be. That’s ok. 🙂 The card is aimed for a beginner stamper. One who is just starting out and doesn’t have a lot of products. It’s basic stamping with little or no colouring or any diecutting.
I added a little more background stamping with the poppies and leaves using the Painted Poppies stamp set. These were in poppy Parade.
On a piece of white card I stamped a poppy just off the top edge of the card and then added the Happy Birthday from the Peaceful Moments stamp set. I lightly sponged some Poppy Parade ink around the edge of the card. I haven’t done that for a very long time. I used to add it all the time but now I tend to leave the card clean – if I can describe it like that.
The strips of the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper were adhered straight down on to the Poppy Parade card base and the white stamped piece was raised up with Dimensionals. Before doing that I added a little piece of the Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon. Of course finish with bling.
Hope you like my version of the card. There have been a few versions of this card from those who went to Onstage.
