Poppy Parade with Golden Honey DSP
I love the Golden Honey DSP and Honey Bee bundle so very much that I just had to get another FREE set of the DSP (with a qualifying order) from Sale-a-Bration! While I love every, single pattern of the DSP, the flower pattern is quickly becoming one of my favorites. I’ve already posted one card using this pattern and Bermuda Bay. You can see that card here. Today’s color combination is black, white, and Poppy Parade.
Here’s the FabFri181 challenge banner:
Here’s the card I created for this challenge:
This DSP is Just Gorgeous!
I started out coloring these flowers with Purple Posy, but decided I wanted a bolder look. Since I’d already colored a blue shade, I went with this Poppy Parade. I really like the way the poppy color plays off the black and white background of the DSP. I didn’t even try to use my blends to color. Instead, I grabbed my Poppy Parade marker, relaxed, and got started. While I colored these flowers, I was turning card options over and over in my head. By the time I finished coloring, I had my layout picture firmly in my brain.
Covering up even a small part of the DSP didn’t seem like a good idea, but I needed a vertical banner of some sort. I grabbed a piece of Whisper White, ran it through the Subtle 3D embossing folder, trimmed down the banner and fussy cut the chevron on the bottom. Finally, I outlined it with my Basic Black Stampin’ Write marker.
Next, I needed to cut down the DSP for the top part of the card and the strips. I wanted to make sure I had a definitive border between the DSP and the Poppy Parade cardstock, so I outlined the DSP with my Basic Black marker as well.
Finishing Up the Card
I cropped the strips and the cardstock mats using the Stitched Rectangle die set. While the challenge banner called for five horizontal elements, I only used four. I knew I needed ribbon of some sort and decided to use the Basic Black baker’s twine tied in a bow at the top of the banner. Wouldn’t it be fabulous if baker’s twine came in every color? I can’t be the only one wishing for that, can I?
Next, I needed to decide how to adhere everything. I used some large glue dots to adhere the banner. The large ones enabled the banner to have just a smidge of a pop-up. I used the multipurpose adhesive for the top three strips. Dimensionals give the sentiment strip a pop-up. There are dimensionals under the cardstock and between the sentiment and the cardstock. This dimension makes the sentiment pop off the banner creating a focal point.
Finally, I stamped some flowers on the front, bottom, left corner of the envelope and added a piece of the Brights DSP to the envelope flap.
With that, another Golden Honey DSP card and coordinating envelope was complete. Contrary to the name, there’s not even a tiny bit of golden color on this card.
