Scalloped Vase of Poppies
Hello bloggers, posts should be back to normal from today onwards as I made a boo boo with schedule times on blogger and only just realised today. Hope you like today's scalloped poppy card.
To create this card I began with a piece of A4 yellow card stock and folded it in half die cut it using Spellbinders Grand Scallop dies twice. Next I adhered the two scallops together to make a pocket vase so only added glue to the bottom half of the vase. With another sheet of yellow card stock I die cut the stand for my card as it is a non opening card. The stand was cut using labels 28 die and then scoring the label so that it formed a stand which was adhered to the back of the vase. Using IndigoBlu 'Poppy Meadow' stamp set I stamped the largest poppy 8 times, some of these were generation stamped but most were not. This was done to give the poppies different looks. Next I water coloured the stems and leaves on 3 of the poppies using peeled paint distress ink. The poppies were all cut out and I inked the edges with a red promarker to disguise the white edges. The poppies were then arranged in the vase.
Happy Crafting xx Hazel
