Poppy Celebration Birthday Card

This is a digital stamp that I found on Pinterest Pin #484529609874984134.  Poppies are such beautiful flowers and I love the contrast from red and green.  I have an aunt who turns 101 this November and I felt like the sentiment from Mama Elephant’s Make a Wish would make the perfect card for her.  She is amazing and should be celebrated every day.

I printed the focal image on Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock and then traced and cut the image with the PIXScan Mat and the Silhouette Cameo.  It was colored with Copic Markers: R27, R24, R22; YG67, YG17, YG03; YR23, YR21.  The same white cardstock was used to die cut a rectangle a Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle and then run through the Big Shot again with the Cuttlebug Oxford Embossing Folder.

The sentiment was stamped on a scrap of white cardstock with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with Ranger Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder.  A scrap of green cardstock and 3M ½” Foam Tape was added to the back to make it pop from the page.

Darice Sticky Back Foam was added to the dry embossed rectangle and then adhered to a top folding A2 cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock with Tombo Mono Multi Glue.  The focal image was adhered to the front with the same glue and the backing paper was removed from the sentiment and adhered over the lower third of the focal image and the card was done.
