I won this pretty poppy die from Di at Pixies Crafty Workshop. Di has a snippets challenge there that is a lot of fun. We all have snippets lying about and it is great to make a card with them and get some of those pesky snippets used up!
I have cut out the poppies with a snippet of fairly heavy white card. I thought the heavy weight was the best choice as those slender branches could tear so easily. I used a piece of wax paper between the die and the piece of card and delicate as they are, those slender branches popped right out!
I coloured the poppies and the grassy hill with chalk as I wanted a very soft look., and I'm happy with how it turned out. I glued most of the poppy diecut onto a Spellbinders Parisian Accents die cut (left over from another project), but did pop dot a few random flower heads. Another snippet of pale pink card, a larger snippet of Heidi Grace DP placed over a tent fold card, and this card was done.
Sometimes a fast and fairly simple card is just what I need...
