Remembering our Veterans. The poppy is the enduring symbol of remembrance of the First World War. It is strongly linked with Armistice Day (November 11), but the origin as a popular symbol of remembrance lies in the landscapes of the First World War. Poppies were a common site, especially on the Western Front.
I used Susan's Poppy die set to create five red poppies and several poppy buds. In the background Susan's Foliage die set was used to die cut Rosemary and Berry Branches. The red berries were created using the Nuvo Autumn Red Crystal Drops.
The two white ovals were die cut using Spellbinders Elegant Twisted Oval die set.
Gold mirror card stock was used to die cut three different sizes of stars. The dies are old ones from my stash. They were attached using dimensional squares.
Three white pearls were colored with a red marker and attached on the lower right side of the die cut ovals.
A thin gold mirror card stock was cut and attached above and below the poppy arrangement.
Suzanne Cannon's, A Way With Words, Remember die was used for the sentiment.
Today we honor you for serving our country and protecting our freedom. Happy Veteran's Day!
