Poppy Thanks

Just Us Girls Challenge #623 – Trend Week

As I mentioned in my Mardi Gras post I had made a background from which I intended to die cut feathers, but the mineral paper wouldn’t cut. I decided to use it as a background here and in a couple of places you may see the edges of some embossed feathers, although the embossed circle does cover up a lot of it. For the embossed circle I used a folder called patio brick walk by Lifestyle Crafts. I used an ink pad directly over it very carefully to add a bit of colour. The sentiment is from an MFT set I’ve only had for a short time. And the poppies are an unbranded die. What I did was cut it twice, once in the orange PP and again in the green. Then I trimmed off the flowers from the green piece and carefully glued the 2 pieces together. I really like how it turned out doing it this way. I added a touch of ink to the buds before attaching it all to the card front. I meant to have this card work for two challenges but forgot an important element for the 2nd challenge so I shall have to do another for that one.

  1. Johanna… I am laughing because I did the same thing this weekend… I forgot an element and had to make another card for a challenge. I just think more for the stash! I am loving the background you created…very intriguing. I think you could have left the embossed feathers behind the flowers…might have been cool. I do like the embossed lattice and the touch of blue is wonderful! Great card. Thanks for joining and sharing at Just Us Girls this week!

    1. Thanks for the comments. You can laugh a 2nd time, because I went ahead with the other card this morning and managed to forget the same element. Thankfully this one was easy to fix although it wasn’t quite what I planned. And I did think about leaving the background with the flowers on top but part of it was damaged so I covered that up.


    1. Thanks a lot. I thought I had a folder with a brick wall but couldn’t locate it. This morning I came across it – go figure!


  2. I shall do some more backgrounds on the mineral paper as it changes how everything looks. But next time I won’t attempt to die cut it.
