A Poppy Card

Today I am sharing my latest design team card 

I started with an A5 card base and placed the Sue Wilson Designs - Gemini Collection/Lyra
on the right hand edge of the card and ran it through my die cutting machine.
Next I glued a piece of red card behind the cut edge, and added some score lines
to the remaining front of the card.

Using the Memory Box - Prim Poppy Die, I die cut four poppies in red and green card.

I then snipped the red poppy heads away from their stems and glued them to the green ones.

I then positioned them onto the card, cutting away a couple of pieces of stem from one of them, and then glued them to the card.

Using the Memory Box - Precious Daises die, I cut the smaller bow in red card, glued it
to the poppy stems, adding a diamante to the centre.

I have not added a sentiment just yet, as I think this card can be used for different
occasions e.g. Birthday, Anniversary, Get Well and Sympathy.

These are the dies I have used:-
