Today I am sharing a card that features one of my favorite new Poppystamps dies, Brilliant Geraniums! Take a look!
Growing up in Wisconsin, I would see big, bright, red geraniums EVERYWHERE! Stinky and sturdy, these hardy flowers were the harbingers of summer and could be found on Grandmas's porch, my parents' planters around the patio, and under the neighbor's mailbox. Their bold colors remind me of Americana in the Midwest, and carefree summer days when kids rode bicycles down the street without helmets until the streetlights came on. Imperfect and beautiful, up on the windowsill, the chipped ceramic geranium pot brought bright color all summer long.
Creating the parts for your your own geranium pot is easy! Cut out your brightest red, your greenest green, and put them all together under the Grand Madison Window.
I cut the Freestyle Hugs in bright red and white, and added a few Fairy Crystals for the finishing touch, and I have a wonderful summer memory saved on a card that's going to be sent to a dear friend of mine from my little home town in Wisconsin.
Thank you so much for joining us today!
Hi Michele, Bright and beautiful, I adore the red geraniums, my neighbour has pots of them all year round on her front steps in her porch and they are always such an 'inviting' sight. I love your card and your Friend will love it too.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
