It's hard to resist the classic color scheme of red, white, and black - with just a hint of bright green thrown in. The colors really pop! So, when I opened my package of Golden Honey Bee Specialty Designer Series Paper (which you can get FREE during Sale-A-Bration), I knew I had to use the black and white patterned papers with the Painted Poppies stamp set. All of these cards use Whisper White, Basic Black, Poppy Parade, and Granny Apple Green.
The piece of Basic Black cardstock was then layered on Whisper White cardstock before being added to the card front. I added three Basic Rhinestones to the side to give it a little extra bling. Finally, I attached the card front to a Poppy Parade card base.
The front is Whisper White cardstock layered on Basic Black. I added a strip of black and white striped paper, also layered on black, to the front before layering on the circle, the poppy, and the greeting. I finished by attaching the card front to a Whisper White card base.
All this black, white, red, and green is so fresh and bright it makes me think of summer, despite the piles of snow outside my door!
I just couldn't resist playing with these poppies some more! I decided to make a set of four blank cards. These are perfect for sending a note to a friend just because you're thinking of them. I was inspired by the Global Design Project #216 to CASE (Copy and Selectively Edit) the Designer.
The Painted Poppy stamp set will be available in the new Mini Catalog coming in January! If you'd like to receive one, please leave me a message or send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I will get one out to you!
