Handmade Poppy Card Tutorial with First Edition Nature Dies

What you Need

First Edition 12 x 12 Textured Cardstock, Nature Die Set (Hobbycraft Exclusive)

Simply creative Alphabet Stamp Set

Dovecraft 6x6 Card Blank

How to Make

1.  Begin by cutting down a piece of red First Edition Textured Card Stock to 15cmx15cm. Adhere this to the centre of your Dovecraft 6x6 Card Blank.

2.  Next, layer a 14cm x 14cm piece of black First Edition Card Stock to the middle of your card.

3.  To make the poppies, die cut 6 large flowers and 3 small flowers from the First Edition Nature dies set. Use a pencil or a thin tool to add shape and dimension to the petals.

4.  Layer each large flower with another large flower die cut using 3D foam pads, ensuring to stick it down at an angle to add interest.

5.  Next, die cut 6 star shaped flowers from the First Edition Nature Dies set onto black First Edition Textured Card Stock. Add one to the centre of each flower with 3D foam pads.

6.  Die cut the grass strip 3 times from the First Edition Nature dies set onto green textured card stock. Also cut 3 thin strips of green from green textured card stock to use for the stems.

7.  Place the poppies on to your card design. Once you’re happy with the placement of the flowers, adhere them with 3D foam pads.

8.  Place the stems underneath the flowers, ensuring to cut off any excess card. Once you’re happy with their position, glue them down.

9.  Place the first strip of die cut grass to the bottom of the black sheet with 3D foam pads. Use another grass strip to fill the gap on the edge of your card.

10.  To add texture, add another layer of grass. Repeat the step above to fill in the gap with another die cut.

11.  Stamp the word ‘Remember’ using the Simply Creative Alphabet Stickers on a red sheet  of First Edition Card Stock. Once dry, cut it out.

12.  Stick your sentiment to the bottom of your card in the centre, with 3D foam pads to finish.
