Another NEW die from the Spring and Summer release, called Darling Poppies. I love this sweet image and thought it’d make a great CAS just thinking of you today card.
Here’s what I did…
Die cut the Darling Poppies die in the front of an A-2 size white notecard. You will need to keep a few of the white pieces to put back in.
Then die cut the Darling Poppies die two more times from Memory Box Meadow Green and Cranberry card-stock… by the way, die piecing is a great way to use up scraps! YAY!
Turn the white card with the die cut hole over so the back side is facing up.
Place the green outline cut in the hole right side facing down.
Then put in the larger white piece that is between the stems, right side down.
Then using scotch tape or packing tape, tape over the back so there will be sticky on the front.
Turn the white card front, right side up.
Finish filling in the spaces with the flower petals and the three white teeny pieces.
End result…a lovely notecard to ‘snail’ mail!

I’ve had these two Winter cards waiting for me to just glitter the trees and finish!!! ugh. I don’t know why I procrastinate getting the glitter out! I got all these trees glittered without making a terrible mess! YAY!
Anyway, I needed a Winter scene swap card for stamp club last Friday…our January swap theme was a Winter Scene card but we had to cancel our January meeting because of the below zero cold. Then we had to cancel our February meeting because of snow! March is our catch up month… so finally… the two dreaded glitter cards are done and it wasn’t so bad after-all!
What a bummer though… can you see the glitter in the photos even????? grrrrr… lol

Same trees and stamps again and added the Impression Obsession bunnies. Ranger Black enamel for the eyes.
The glitter I used is Winter White from the Art Institute Glittering System. I put sheets of double sided adhesive on my card-stock before I die cut the trees. After they were die cut, I peeled off the protective sheet, poured glitter on them, layed a scrap paper over the glitter and rubbed it in. Shook off the extra glitter and put it back in the jar. It’s a really fine, pretty glitter.
Oh, the hill die cuts are from Papertrey Ink.
