S imple, pretty thinking of you card using Stampin' Up! products.
Cut cardstock and designer paper pieces to the following sizes using a Paper Trimmer:
- card from Old Olive Cardstock at 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and scored at 4-1/4"
- 4" x 5-1/4" green stripes on white background from Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper, cut so the stripes are vertical on the vertical rectangle
- 2-1/4" x 3-1/4" from Real Red Cardstock
- 2" x 3" from Whisper White Cardstock
- 1" x 3" from Real Red Cardstock
Choose a sentiment from the Peaceful Moments Set and mount it on the appropriate sized block. Ink it up with the Old Olive Ink Pad. Stamp it in the lower right corner of the striped Peaceful Poppies Designer Paper rectangle.
Adhere the sentiment stamped designer paper to the front of the Old Olive card.
Mount the grouping of small poppy flowers on stems image from the Painted Poppies Set on Block I. Ink it up with the Old Olive Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of the white rectangle so the stems go off the bottom edge a bit.
Mount the large splatter image from the Painted Poppies Set on Block C. Ink it up with the Real Red Ink Pad. Stamp on Grid Paper. WITHOUT RE-INKING, stamp it over the tops of the stamped flowers. Repeat multiple times, remembering to re-ink and then stamp off each time. Let the images overlap and let some of them go off the edges of the rectangle.
Mount the small splatter image from the Painted Poppies Set on Block A. Use it to fill in any space needed by inking it up with the Real Red Ink Pad and stamping off on Grid Paper each time before stamping on the cardstock.
Adhere the stamped white rectangle to the center of the large Real Red rectangle.
Pick out the strip of filigree die from the Painted Labels Dies. Put it on top of the smaller Real Red rectangle on a platform on your cutting and embossing tool. Run through the tool. Use the Take Your Pick Die Brush Tip and paper-piercing tool on the Take Your Pick to remove the pieces.
Put a thin line of SNAIL along the bottom edge of the matted poppies image on the back of the Real Red mat. Adhere the red filigree strip to the bottom edge so the loops poke out and just a thin line of red shows and the loops are centered side to side.
Cut a 4-1/4" piece of Real Red 3/8" Cotton Ribbon.
Lay the ribbon across the matted poppies rectangle with filigree strip attached so the bottom of the ribbon is even with the bottom of the red mat. Secure the ribbon in place on the back with strips of Tear & Tape Adhesive.
Remove the protective backings from the Tear & Tape pieces and add SNAIL to the back of the Real Red rectangle. Adhere the rectangle to the front of the card so it is centered side to side and is about 7/8" from the top.
Cut another 4-1/4" piece of Real Red 3/8" Cotton Ribbon.
Tie a half knot in the center of the ribbon. Trim the ends.
Use a Mini Glue Dot to adhere the ribbon knot to the card front at an angle so it is centered over the ribbon already on the card front on the left side.
