Splendid Poppy Stems Spring Card
by Anne Thompson

I have a spring card today that features the SPLENDID POPPY STEMS cut from the TWINKLING JEWEL GLITTER PAD green glitter paper and lots of layers of patterned papers from the SPRINGTIME BOUQUET 6X6 paper pad.

materials used

I started by cutting the green plaid paper first and adhering that to the notecard.  I then chose three other coordinating green printed papers and cut them in a variety of sizes and backed each one with white cardstock, planning the sizes based on how they would stack up.  I stamped the sentiment on the green rectangle which would become the top layer on the card front.  I added the bottom two layers flat to the card front (the tiny floral print and the green leaves on white)  with a tape runner and the top sentiment layer with dimensional foam dots.  I cut the Splendid Poppy Stems from the green glitter paper.  I arranged the die cut so that the larger blossom adhered flat to the green leafy paper tucked under a corner of the popped up panel and the smaller blossom stuck to the sentiment panel.

After securing the stem ends to the green leafy paper panel I added the green satin bow using glue dots.  Voila!

I'm sending out cards as fast as I can make them as another way to keep in touch with friends during this time of sheltering in place and self-quarantine.  I'm finding that having some creative time each day makes me less anxious and more grateful for what I do have.  And if I run low on craft supplies, I can order online and have them delivered to my door!

Happy Crafting!  Stay safe!
