Peaceful Moments, Poppy Moments, Thank You Card, 2020-2021 Stampin' Up! Catalog

This pretty card was found on Pinterest. You can see the original here.  But I pretty much nailed it.  I just loved the color and the look of the card so I had to make it. It's a very simple card to make. I think it took more time to die cut the pieces than it did to put the car together.

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock.  The Basic Black piece was cut 4" x 5-1/4" and the top focal Whisper White piece was cut 3-7/8" x 5-1/8".

I die cut the flower pieces.  The background piece is cut from Poppy Parade and the outline piece is cut from Calypso Coral.  The flower buds were also cut from Calypso Coral.

The leaves and bud pieces were die cut from Mossy Meadow and the detailed leaf pieces were die cut from Old Olive. The flower centers were die cut using Basic Black card stock.  I used a scrap piece but you can always die cut them from the center of the Basic Black piece layer. The die cut set used here is "Poppy Moments".

I put the flower layers together.  When I die cut my detailed pieces, I used some double sided sticky paper on them before I die cut them.  I didn't want to deal with gluing them.  It's not bad using the waxed paper technique but it's not fun.

I set the larger flower on top of the card to see where the words were going to go.  The words are stamped using the "Peaceful Moments" set and black Memento ink.

The stamped Whisper White piece was taped on top of the Basic Black piece.

The leaves were set in place first using snail tape.  Then the flowers and flower buds were added. 

For the final touch Wink of Stella was added to the flower centers. I highly recommend adding the Wink of Stella before you glue or tape them in place.

This was a very fun card and I think it would be pretty in other colors and it can be used for several other occasions.

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