ROW OF POPPIES card for every month of the year!

I just LOVE LOVE LOVE the new ROW OF POPPIES die no. 99137: 


The other day I started cutting out lots of them in a variety of papers.  Then I cut other dies to coordinate with them:  STITCHED CLOUDS no. 30053 and MINI PERFECT PATCHES no. 99162 and BEADED BACKGROUND no. 99132.

30053 99162 99132

The next step was to get some blank cards and start playing around with various combinations.  At that point I knew I needed to add some stencil backgrounds for a few of the poppies:  SPRINKLE DOTS no. 88597.  (For one card I used HEART CONFETTI no. 88588 from the 2015 winter collection which seems to be no longer in the catalog.  You could easily substitute one of the other hearts stencils.)


Once I had some cards made, I started looking through the new stamps to find suitable sentiments.  What I realized at that point was that the months of the year from WELL PLANNED CL5155 would be perfect!


And here are the finished cards for eight of the months!  (I still have to finish June, August, September, and December for a complete set.)





A set of these with stamped envelopes would make a great Christmas gift.  Now I just need to figure out how to make a little box for them all!

Happy crafting!


great idea!

These would make a wonderful gift for someone...boxed and ready to go.

You made me love this die too! Beautiful cards!
