Sweet Poppy - Jo Austin

Hiya folks..... 

You know.... I thought I had shared this card with you lovely lot a while ago when the beautiful Mousses and Double Detail dies and stencils were on Create and Craft... but as I looked through my posts on here tonight, I realised I hadn't. So here it is. 

This little cutie is Poppy Hideaway, and isn't she absolutely adorable? 


I began my card by cutting out the silhouette in black cardstock, then running it through the machine with the embossing mat to bring out all the details of the die.

I chose a mousse that would highlight the embossing, so went for an indian gold colour, and with my finger tips, just applied some of the mousse carefully over the little raised areas. 

Once this was done, I needed to decide what I wanted to use behind the image, and what card base I wanted... now, knowing me being me... I couldn't decide, so took out my distress inks and made a sunset scene in the background. This was then cut out with the verso edge (outer edge) of the die so that it matched the outer edge of the silhouette perfectly. 

I chose to mount my sweet Poppy onto my "squircle" die, aka Twisting Veranda. I used colours that were in my inky background, so burnt oranges, blacks, greens etc. The sentiment was from the Miniature Moments sentiments. It was all that was needed - nothing too big I thought. 


You can see on the photo above, just how the frame of the double detail dies snuggle in with the twisting veranda perfectly. It was just as though it was meant to be....!

Righty-oh ... that's me about done for tonight me thinks... I will be back soon with another project for you ... so please check back soon. 

Until then... happy crafting xxx
