It seems appropriate to use the beautiful Peaceful Poppies designer series paper for my card today, the 75th anniversary of VE Day. Poppies are a symbol of Remembrance and very appropriate for a card to thank everyone that sacrificed so much for our peace.
My card is just a very small gesture of our huge gratitude…
To make this card I cut Whisper White Thick card to measure 29 x 10.5 cm then scored and folded at 14.5 cm. I then cut a piece of Poppy Parade card to measure 10 x 14 cm and some Peaceful Poppies paper to measure 9.5 x 13.5 cm. Before adding the top layers to the card base I added one of the Pearlized Doilies that I’d cut in half, a strip of Poppy Parade card and some Poppy Parade ribbon, securing one end of the ribbon on the back of the card layer.
I stamped the sentiment from the Modern Heart stamp set with Poppy Parade ink onto Whisper White card and cut it with the Story Label punch. I used the same punch on some more Poppy Parade card, cut it in half lengthwise and added it to the back of the stamped one. I added this to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Finally I added 3 blue gems from the Holiday Rhinestones pack…
I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s card.
