I created this card for this week’s Global Design Project challenge and the Case This Sketch challenge. Even though I missed the deadline for GDP, I will still include the challenge banner in this post.

Here’s my card:

Some day, soon I hope, I will figure out how to get these images side-by-side.

Poppy Repeat

I’ve already posted a card with a random poppy pattern which I watercolored and embossed. You can find that post here. I also created a monochromatic card in Balmy Blue and Basic Black, which will be posted live tomorrow in the Make My Monday card challenge DT post. Please come back tomorrow to see that card, which I think is the prettiest out of the three. All three layouts are different even though they use the large poppy stamp.

The first thing I should have done, was cut down my Whisper White top layer to the 4′ x 5.25′ size. Just believe me here, cut it down first, or definitely before you cut the three pieces apart. Don’t ask me how I know.

I just stamped random poppies on the cardstock. Then, I cut the cardstock on my trimmer to get the three pieces. Finally, I stamped the blotches in the three color challenge colors, one of each piece. It really doesn’t matter that the blotches line up perfectly and I purposefully stamped them randomly.

I’ve been itching to use this gorgeous Petal Pink ribbon and have really wanted to try to make a bow with it. I didn’t even think I could create a decent bow since I struggle so much with making them. I have heard that I should use bunny ears to create bows. However, I just don’t get it. I really need a right-handed person to sit across from me so I can learn how to do it. After a few tries, and some rearranging, I couldn’t believe I actually created a satisfactory bow!

I kept thinking birthday for this card. I used the Peaceful Moments cling stamp set to stamp the sentiment. The layered circles die set cropped all three layers. Once they were together, I popped them up on dimensionals. The sentiment circle fit perfectly over the ribbon.

Finishing Touches

Truly, that was it: stamp, cut, stamp, put together. This card is so easy that, if I had all the cardstock layers cut ahead of time, I could put ten of them together in about 30 minutes.

All I needed to do was put all the layers on the base, which is Pool Party, and add a white panel with a sentiment for the inside. I used a piece of the Pool Party 6 x 6 DSP for the envelope flap, and this card/envelope set was done.

As always, thank you so much for stopping by my blog today. I’d love to hear what you think, and every comment is greatly appreciated!

Please stay safe, healthy, and isolated as much as possible. We were on Spring Break two weeks ago, and should have gone back last Monday. Instead, we transitioned to virtual learning and our “kids” start today. I have one daughter, but many hundreds of “kids” and I miss this year’s kids greatly.

Have a Peachy Day!
