Poppy Flower With a Twist (& Winner Announcement)

Hello friends!
I am popping in with a Poppy flower card ( I don't think I get to say that too often....!).

Please see the winner announcement of Crafty Friends Blog Hop and BAF Poppy Blog Hop located at the end of this blog post.
Build-A-Flower: Poppy
Build-A-Flower: Poppy
from: ALTENEW  

I love the large Poppy stamp that I could not resist making another card with these gorgeous images.
I am here for you

Since I still have a few extra poppy flowers from my previous project (see here),
I decided to create a floral design with a shaker element.

I am here for you-001

Thanks to the matching die, it was not hard to do just that.
Position, position, position....that is all there is to it!
If you are creating designs like this, do make sure you have a larger piece of card stock for easy-trimming (after the alignment).


Before I made the diecut, I adhered Peach Gold Washi Tape over a piece of white card stock.

The Peaches and Cream Sequins also go nicely with the over all design.
Since the focal point took up so much attention, I decided to forgo the leaves and just leave it as is! 
( I guess I don't get to say that often, either!!).  😀

I hope my post makes you smile!

Beautiful card! Love the soft colours and the way they pop against the grey paper at the bottom. I haven't tried this technique yet. Will definitely give it a try.

conil said...Love the vibrancy of this poppy. Since it's our state flower and since in the Spring my backyard is covered in them, I'm a bit biased. They're such a happy color and the subtle background you created is perfect for this one.
Congratulations, Nandini and Coni, please e-mail me at to claim your prize asap. Thank you everyone for your positive feedback!

I have never made a shaker card. Your card is interesting, and I love this poppy stamp! I think the washi tape is brilliant!
