On my first card, I used the lovely Floral Sentiments 3. I stamped the poppies and one extra big poppy, colored with Copics and did an out of the box treatment when die cutting it with a large oval. On the extra poppy, I cut some of the petal in toward the center and popped them up for a little dimension. It’s framed with coral layer and the background on the right was stamped with an ODBD mini bg image. The designer paper was cut with a bracket border die and the greeting was stamped on an ODBD tag die. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50 and these are the Copics I used.

For my second card, I used the beautiful Floral Sentiments flower image and one of the Floral Sentiments 2 greetings. After stamping, coloring and die cutting the flower, I added some stickles down the center veins and a cobalt circle behind it. The greeting was die cut w/ the top part of an ODBD Recipe Card die and I resized it just a bit to make the tab narrower. The dp was die cut along the bottom edge with a border die..the cobalt band was embossed and I added an ODBD Fancy Foliage vine around the band. The white bg was also embossed
The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 and these are the Copics I used.
