Heartfelt Creations Wednesday - Purple Poppies!

Welcome to another Heartfelt Creations Wednesday! Today the Heartfelt Creations team is participating in a blog hop with Art Anthology! I was given the Art Anthology Colorations Spray in Wild Orchid to work with. I used the spray to make some pretty, purple poppies!

I sorted through my Heartfelt Creations papers to find papers with the same color tone as the wild orchid spray, and created this dimensional card. The purple poppies literally pop off the page! 

Start by creating a 5" x 6" card by trimming black cardstock to 5" x 12" and scoring at 6" on the long side to make a 5" x 6" top-fold card. Trim border paper from the Cut Mat Create Paper Collection to 4 7/8" x 5 7/8" and wrap a length of white satin ribbon around the paper on the lower section of the pattern. Attach the ribbon at the back of the paper, and adhere the paper to the card front. 

Trim floral paper from the Cut Mat Create Paper Collection to 3 7/8" x 4 7/8" and mat with black cardstock cut to 4" x 5". Attach panel to the top of the card front at an angle. Trim purple text paper from the Butterfly Medley Paper Collection to 2 7/8" x 3 7/8" and mat with black cardstock cut to 3" x 4". Attach the panel to the right side of the card at an angle. Trim purple and green print paper from the Cascading Fuchsia Paper Collection to 1 7/8" x 2 7/8" and mat with black cardstock cut to 2" x 3". Attach panel to the left side of the card at an angle.

Stamp the Blazing Poppy Petals Cling Stamp Set twice onto white cardstock with gray ink. Color the flowers by spraying the paper with the Art Anthology Wild Orchid Colorations Spray and allow paper to dry. Use the Blazing Poppy Die to cut out the flowers. Shape the flowers and assemble one large and one small flower by gluing the layers together. Stamp the leaves from the Delightful Daisies Cling Stamp Set several times onto white cardstock with black ink. Color the leaves with distress ink and use the Delightful Daisy Die to cut out the leaves. Assemble the large dimensional flower and the leaves on the lower center of the card. Add a white satin bow to the left edge of the flower. 

Stamp the sentiment from the Heartfelt Sentiments Cling Stamp Set onto white cardstock with black ink. Use the large tag die from the Luggage and Tags Die to trim out the sentiment. Sponge the edges of the tag with Thistle pigment ink and attach the tag to the right top of the card with foam adhesive. Cut the small vine from the Cut Mat Create 1B Die out of a scrap of green paper. Attach the vine and the small dimensional flower to the tag as shown.

Decorate the inside of the card by cutting white cardstock to 4 7/8" x 5 7/8" and stamping the corner image from the Poppy Corner and Border Cling Stamp Set with Thistle pigment ink onto the upper right corner. Trim Cut Mat Create paper to 4 7/8" x 1 3/4" and attach to the bottom of the white panel. Use a border punch to create a decorative border from black cardstock. Trim the border to 4 7/8" wide and attach it to the top of the printed paper. Attach the panel to the inside of the card.
