Welcome my crafty friends,
My card today has red poppies in honor of all the Veterans as we celebrate Veterans Day. I am so thankful for all those that have served our country some who have given their life for our Freedom.
My card is a 6″ X 6″ tent fold card.
Pattern paper from my stash was used to decorate front of card. The blue paper with white stars was cut 5-3/4″ square then adhered to card front using Clear Double Sided Adhesive. Flag pattern paper was cut 5″ square then adhered as before.
Susan’s Garden Club Oriental Poppy die set was cut from white cardstock ( 3 full flowers and a bud) , colored with Copic marker then shaped. You can find tutorial video here for creating these poppies.
Using the Foliage and Ladybug die set from Susan’s Autumn Flora collection 3 Eucalyptus were cut from green cardstock, shaded and shaped. Several sprigs of Rosemary were created as well as 1 ladybug. Tutorial video can be found here.
2nd & 3rd Spellbinders Picot Petite Squares were cut from white cardstock. the larger square was attached to center of card front using Clear Double Sided Adhesive. Sentiment was heat embossed on smaller square then adhered to card front using dimensional dots.
Eucalyptus and Rosemary were arranged and adhered first to card front using Kids Choice Glue. Poppies were then built on the card using Kids Choice Glue. Ladybug added.
I do hope that I have inspired you today and you will make your own card to honor our Veterans – be sure to thank our Veterans!
