Susan's Garden Vellum Poppy



It is time for a new challenge at Joan's Gardens. This week the challenge is to create a card with the following: 
  • Use black, red and white
  • Create a flower out of vellum
  • Include a Sentiment
  • Have a die cut border
  • List something from Joan's Gardens
For my card I created a vellum "Poppy" created with the new Susan's Garden "Poppy" die set by Sizzix. The petals look so real in vellum.  I used the new Sizzix tool kit to shape the flower and leaves.   I'm not sure I like it or not, but I added some Green Flower Soft on the leaves as poppy leaves are "fuzzy".  The design paper is from my "scrap" bin.   The sentiment and label are from the new JustRite "Grand Sentiments" stamp set.  There are 36 stamps in this set;  I love the great variety of sentiments in it.  I used VersaFine Ink to stamp the sentiment and label then clear embossed them.  The center on one of the labels was cut out and raised with dimensional tape.  

On the bottom, under the poppy, I added a Spellbinders "Parisian Accents" border.  The border on the outside of the card was created with the Martha Stewart "Vintage Floral" punches.  A red silk bow was added to complete this card.

  I hope you will join us this week  in our challenge.  Please go over to Joan's Gardens to see all the information about this challenge, to link your card,  and to see what the prize is for this challenge.

Very lovely red poppys. I love the transparency of the vellum paper it gives to the poppy. Awesome Selma!

Love your honesty about using your new Sizzix tool, sometimes it's just a matter of our comfort level with prior tools, and sometimes it's just a learning cure thing. Either way your Poppy s just stunning. Like the flower soft on the leaves.. Another lovey creation.

A pretty card. Did you colour the vellum with ink or something, or is it available to purchase coloured?
