Hi crafty friends. As we’ll be celebrating Mother’s day soon here in the US I thought it would be fun to play with poppies and make an easel shaped Mother’s day card.
It looks like a complicated design but I promise it was a very enjoyable and fairly simple process.
I first prepared the flower panel with a piece of dove white cardstock on which I stamped the hero florals poppy stamp, coloring with copic markers Y19, Y02, YR12, G07, YR68, R43, R46, R08, YG13, G17, YR23, E29 and E49. I then fussy cut around the top edges of the flowers. The lady bug which in also included in the set was stamped, colored and die cut with the coordinating die. I added glossy accents over it and set aside to dry. The sentiment was stamped with clear embossing ink onto black card stock and heat embossed with white embossing powder.
To make the easel part of the card, I used dove white cardstock measuring the basic size of 5 1/2 by 8 1/2 scoring at 4 1/4 and then scoring the front panel again at 1 1/2. This scoreline folded will serve as the stand for the card. I then adhered 2 strips of glitter cardstock one black and one green on the bottom of the front panel. The poppy flower panel was lastly adhered just below the scoreline to ensure folding. I also added a strip of green cardstock on the inside of the card. Another black glitter cardstock strip was adhered onto the green strip for the easel to serve as a stopper when opened.
I hope I’ve inspired you to play along in our current challenge. Don’t forget we have prizes to be won from our wonderful sponsor Hero Arts!
