Hello! Tricia Barber here sharing my first post for Poppy Stamps! I am super excited to be here! I love using dies to create cards and picked the Perfect Posies Bouquet to be the focal point of my card today. There are so many ways that you can add color to your die cuts outside of using colored cardstock. I used my Copic markers to color the Perfect Posies Bouquet: RV52, RV55, RV66, YG01, YG23 and YG17. I die cut an extra white card panel with the Perfect Posies die and then trimmed out several of the flowers to pop up on the card panel.
For my main panel, I die cut a kraft Evangeline Pinpoint Frame panel and layered onto a kraft card base with some liquid adhesive. From some white cardstock I used the middle die from the Scalloped Stitch Frames die and layered on top of the kraft card panel. I added my colored posie die cut onto the white frame with liquid adhesive. I used the trimmed out posies and popped up with foam adhesive. I added details with a white gel pen and crystal glaze to the centers of the flowers. By popping up the flowers you can add dimension to the die cut and give it a different look! For some of the flowers I layered the flower so that it was offsetting the petals below it and others I layered exactly how they are on the die!
To finish off the card, I hot foiled a gold sentiment banner using the Modest Banner Greetings Foil and Cut die set and added to the card with foam tape. I hope you have a wonderful and crafty day!
