PLEASANT POPPIES

Hello Stampers ~

Today I’m sharing a quick and easy card made with the “Pleasant Poppies” stamp set (found in the Stampin’ Up! Idea Book & Catalog).

The technique used for this card is a “spotlighting” technique.  Begin simply by stamping the image onto Whisper White cardstock.  Then with VersaMark™ stamp the same image onto black cardstock… emboss.  I used the “Tangerine Tango” embossing Powder.

Next, punch out your embossed poppies and layer them over the stamped one on the Whisper White.

Although this is a birthday card, I think it is quite fitting as today is Memorial Day.  A special day set aside to remember, honor and thank those who have fought for our freedoms.

I hope you are enjoying this holiday weekend… and don’t forget to thank a veteran.

God Bless,

Linda
