I'm into my first full day at Paperworld in Germany today setting up the Creative Expressions stand. Follow me on Instagram or Facebook to see pictures of the stand going together and the show!
Today's card is using similar dies to yesterdays and is, in its own way dramatic, but the switch to a main coconut white card front really settles this!
I stared b cutting the outline die from the Love Hearts diagonal die into a 5" x 7" piece of coconut white foundation card. I then carefully placed all three cut pieces into the Victorian Tiles 5 x 7 embossing folder and embossed the pieces. Next I removed the strip from the centre of the diagonal cut and covers the pattern with enchanted gold metallic gilding polish.
I added a piece of red behind this which I had cut with the detail die form the Love Hearts set. I foam mounted the white pieces above this and , using the edge die with this set, I cut and added 2 borders of black.
For the main element I cut the detail centre die form the Tessa die in red then in the white. This gives the red detail and the fall away form the white piece fits perfectly in the centre. I stamped the sentiment ( I love this draft font and have used it on loads of my own clear stamp sets) and backed the piece in black.
I made up the three smallest poppies in the requisite poppies set colouring the edges of the petals with archival ink in black and a mini smoothie. I added a 3mm black pearl in the centre and arranged these on a spray of the Olive Branch die cut in black.
