Spring Poppies Card Making Tutorial and Video

Hello! Today I have a Vertical Greetings card to share with you. Out here in California, we finally got a taste of winter so, after all that rain, I was feeling in the mood for spring and chose these soft springlike colors for my background.

Here is the video.

And here is a link to the video on Youtube.

Start by stamping the poppy image, from Vertical Greetings, on white cardstock, using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

Begin coloring with Copic marker YR68.

Add Y17.

Fill in with Y13.

Use YG95 for the stem. After coloring, cut out the image.

Trim white cardstock to 3 by 4 1/4 inches and begin sponging with Memento Cantaloupe ink.

Sponge Memento New Sprout.

Sponge Memento Angel Pink.

Sponge Memento Summer Sky.

Emboss using Spellbinders® Harlequin M-Bossibilities folder.

Stamp the vertical birthday greeting on a 1/2 inch wide strip of white cardstock and trim into two pieces. Use a corner rounder punch to round opposite corners on each piece.

Layer the sponged background with a piece of Pure Luxury Ocean Mist cardstock and adhere the image & sentiment using Self Adhesive Foam Squares. Wrap pink burlap string around opposite corners and tie into a bow. Then adhere to a 4 ¼ by 5 ½ inch white card base.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope your day is fantastic!
