Hello Poppy Peeps!
It's Sphoorti again!
I'm excited to share two beautiful cards with you today, and while they were both crafted in a similar manner, I'd love to delve into the details of my favorite one – the silver creation!
To kick things off, I used the 2552 Floral Vase Pop Up Easel Set craft die and the 2469 Floral Cake Pop Up Easel craft die to cut out an array of leaves and stems. These pieces were then inked up with my usual favorite Distress Inks, including Wilted Violet, Mowed Lawn, Twisted Citron, Blueprint Sketch, Lucky Clover, Peacock Feathers, and Mermaid Lagoon. For an extra touch of shine, I added a splattering of perfect pearls. And because the shine wasn't enough, I coated some of the leaves with some some Wink of Stella.
Next, I used the 2474 Double Scalloped Stitched Frames craft die craft die to fashion two frames - one large, and one small - from some silver mirror cardstock. I nestled the intricately inked leaves within the space between these two frames.
To add a touch of dimension, I cut out multiple layers of white cardstock using the Playful Hugs die, creating a chipboard-like feel. Finally, I topped off this layered stack of hugs diecuts with the word one cut from the same exquisite silver mirror cardstock I used for the frames, and centered it on the card. And that was it!
I made the other card in a similar fashion, just swapped out the silver frames for black mirrored ones, and used a hotfoiled Hello sentiment instead of the Playful hugs.
