Painted Poppies, Here's a Card, Lily Impressions, 2020 Stampin' Up! Spring Catalog

I had gotten the package of "Lily Impressions" Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the Stampin' Up! 2020 Sale-a-Bration catalog.  I didn't get the set to go with it, I just got the free paper.  I had been to a Stamp a Stack where this paper was used on the background and I liked it, so I thought I would give it a try.  And this is what I came up with.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic Black card stock.  On top of  that is a 5-1/4" x 2-3/8" of the "Lily Impressions" DSP.  I taped the DSP strip to the left side of the card front.  There's LOTS of pretty colors of this DSP. I was thinking of using the red one but the green just called me.

I stamped the flower image from the "Painted Poppies" set using black Memento ink. I colored it in using both the light and dark Poppy Parade Blends pens and the light Old Olive Blends pen.  

I die cut the piece using the Rectangle Stitched dies.  

I cut a 2-1/2" x 3-3/4" piece of Basic Black for the layer. I taped the two layers together and then taped them to the front of the card, centering it as much as I could.

The words are from the "Here's a Card" set. I stamped them using black Memento ink.  I punched them with a 1-1/2" circle punch and I also punched a Basic Black piece using a 1-3/4" circle punch. I taped the two circles together and I set them in place on the front of the card using Dimensionals.

I was going to add a black bow but I thought it would get lost in the blackness of this card. A Poppy Parade colored bow might be pretty just under the words but I didn't have any Poppy Parade ribbon.  SO I just left it as it is.  I think it's a simply sweet looking card.

This was a very quick and easy card to make and I am hoping to find some more fun images that will work well with this paper because I have a whole package of it and I need to use it up. 

Thank you SO much for the time to stop by today,
