California Poppy Happy Birthday I and II

When I found these digital poppy corners I wasn’t sure if I was going to use both or one on a card.  As you can see I decided to use only one and made two separate cards.  The different colored matting gives a different feel to each of the cards.

There are many different colors for poppies, but my favorite is the orange red, with the deep black center.  That is how I colored these poppies with Copic Markers: YG97, YG95, YG93; YR18, YR16, YR12.  I printed them with my HP Laser Printer on Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock and then cut out the outline using the PIXScan Mat and the Silhouette Cameo.

The poppy flowers were laid on some Darice Sticky Back Foam and traced, fussy cut, and adhered to the back of the image for dimension.  A rectangle of the Classic Crest Cardstock was cut using a Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle and the flowers were placed in the corner to determine where to stamp the sentiment.  I wanted to use large sentiments for the cards so I used “happy birthday” from Mama Elephant Birthday Wishes for one, and “happy birthday to you” from My Favorite Things Handwritten Happiness.  Both were stamped with Hero Hues India Ink Black using the MISTI.

Black and orange rectangles were added to the back of the focal images that 1/8” larger than the stitched rectangle.  The two were adhered together using Kokuyo Dotliner Adhesive.  Each panel was adhered to a top folding A2 Cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock using Tombo Mono Multi Glue and the flower focal image was adhered to the front using the same glue.

A Sakura White Gel Pen was added to the center of one of the flower arrangement and the card was done.
