Here is the sketch that was created by Susie Nelson:


There are some colors that I just really struggle when figuring out how to use them. Poppy Parade is definitely one of them. It is just such a bright red-orange color that I find difficult to work with. So I decided to work with it on this card and I think it turned out pretty good.

The card base is Poppy Parade card stock cut at 5-1/2” x 8-1/2” and scored at 4-1/4”. The border image from Fresh Vintage was stamped along the right side of the card front in Basic Grey ink. I used the Stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the image and stamped it a second time to create a border the length of the card.

A piece of Everyday Enchantment DSP was cut at 2” x 5”. The edges were sponged with Pool Party ink and the DSP was adhered onto the left side of the card front. Next a piece of Everyday Enchantment DSP was cut at 1-1/2” x 4”. The edges were sponged with Poppy Parade ink and this panel was adhered in the center of the card front.

The small flower from Fresh Vintage was stamped twice in Pool Party ink onto a scrap of Whisper White card stock. These were punched out with the 1” Circle punch and were sponged around the edges with Poppy Parade ink. The greeting from Precious Butterflies was stamped onto a scrap of Whisper White card stock in Poppy Parade ink. This was punched out with the 1-3/4” x 7/8” Oval punch. The edges were sponged with Pool Party ink. The oval was adhered in the middle of the card with the 1” circles above and below all with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Rhinestones were added to each punched piece just to give the card some sparkle.


Once I decided I was going to use this color the card came together really fast!
