Poppy Birthday and the Build a Poppy Die Set.
Today I have another CAS card. I must admit, I've been just a bit giddy each time I've used Poppy Birthday so far! Yesterday afternoon I made a quick little video (my second EVER) showing Poppy Birthday and the Build a Poppy Die Set in action. You can see the video over on the Verve Blog today or you can click this link to view the video on YouTube. I apologize in advance for camera wobbles, rambling and very little editing. I was pressed for time before the nanny had to leave.
Anyhow, I originally was going to do the video with real red flowers, like a traditional poppy, but the subtle stamping didn't show very well on camera, so I changed up the colors for the video and had these left over die cuts to play with for this card! I cut the flowers with the Build a Poppy Die Set then stamped with the sketchy poppies in black, then added some cherry cobbler shading with the solid poppy stamps. The leaves are stamped in pear pizzazz and also cut using the Build a Poppy Die Set. I tucked the Award Banner Trim Die behind my row of poppies, then stamped one of the sentiments from Poppy Birthday onto a frame from On Occasion A few liquid pearl accents and some rhinestones and I was finished!
