Say Thanks With Poppies

Hi Everyone!

Thank you for visiting my blog!  This weeks' Heart2Heart Challenges theme is a color challenge. The colors are are Sunset, Topiary, Glacier and White Daisy.  I created a Thank You card using the "Bokeh" technique for my background and some good old paper punching to create my poppies.  I also used the Close To My Heart Artiste Cricut Cartridge to create the leaves for my card.  The stamp set is a retired hostess stamp set called "Variety of Thanks", I just couldn't resist using it with this card.  Below are instructions on how to create the poppies.

Poppy Assembly Instructions:

Using a 1" Circle Punch, punch out (15) Cranberry Circle Shapes, one 3/4" Cranberry Circle Shape and a 1/2" Black Starburst or similar shape.

Using a hot glue gun, add glue to the center of the 3/4" Cranberry Circle Punch.

Immediately start adding the 1" Cranberry Circle Punch to create the layers of the Poppy, use (5) circles per flower.

When the (5) petals are in place, add the black starburst (or similar shape) on the center.

To find out how I created the background, check out this video I created a few months ago.  I used same exact technique to create my background paper, I just changed up the colors of the ink used.

I hope you like today's project, don't forget to visit the rest of the Heart2Heart design team members to see what they've created for this weeks challenge.  If you would like to enter a project for this week's challenge, please visit us on Facebook or at
