Instructions: Finished card size, 21 cm x 10 cm. Taking the Ivory card stock, cut 21 cm x 20 cm. This will be your card base. Fold the 20 cm length in half. Using the bone folder sharpen the fold. Taking the light green card stock, cut 20.8 cm x 9.8 cm. Distress the edges. Adhere to the card base. Taking the Ivory card stock, cut 20 cm x 8 cm. This is your stamping paper. Stamp the image from the Blazing Poppy fillers set, x 2 across the length of the paper with gold embossing powder. Color the stamped image with the glimmer mist colors using the watercolor brush, the same as you would with water coloring. Tear the top edge off, above and along the top of the stamping. See the photo. 

Cut strips of the same card stock and tear along the edges. Leaving enough room for the ribbon placement, adhere papers together to form the card front. Adhere the ribbon across the front of the card front. Make x 2 half, triple bows with ends, see photo. Using double sided tape and wet glue secure the half bows in place to the right side of the card., leaving enough space for the flower and leaves. 

Make the Poppies and a poppy bud, by taking the Ivory card stock, using the Blazing Poppy stamp and die sets, gold embossing powder, stamp and die cut. Color both sides of the flower petals with the Brick glimmer mist. Cut the leaves using the All Geared Up die and the dark green card stock. Color this with Olive Vine glimmer mist. Wrap a leaf point around the bud. Draw with the black marker, lines across the brads for the Poppy centers. Prick a whole through each flower center, secure together with a brad. 

To make the screw swirls. Cut strips of red brick card stock 2 mm. Take the quelling tool from the Delux Flower Shaping Kit and quell the paper strips. When done, slide off the tool and pull. You now have a Swirl/spring screw. 

Find the sentiment in the paper collection. Cut to size and ink the edges. Arrange and adhere the embellishments made, using wet glue so you can slide and move to their placement in the arrangement. Order of placement; swirl spring screws, leaves and large Poppy, leaf and small Poppy, Poppy bud.
Beleive me....these Poppies can be adapted to make so many flowers...and they go with anything.
Have a scrappy inky day...
