Purple Poppies Happy Birthday Swirls

I love layering flowers. My favorites are from Honey Bee Stamps, but recently I saw Tina Smith using this beautiful poppy die from PaperTrey Ink. It is a smaller poppy flower than some of my other dies and I decided to give it a try. It is very easy to assemble and as you can see you have beautiful flowers when done.

Poppies come in a variety of colors. There are even purple ones. I used the layers for many purple flowers from Gina K. Designs Lovely Lavender cardstock. Shading and shadows were added to the edges of the petals, along with the veins with a darker purple ink. The veins were enhanced with Copic Markers.

For this card I decided to use a large and small flower, along with a bud and leaves. For the background of the flowers an oval was cut from white cardstock and then ink blended with the Altenew Elegant Swirls Stencil. I decided to add a green frame to the outside of the oval. I used the same size die, along with one two sizes smaller and cut it from green cardstock. It was adhered in place with liquid glue.

The front of an A2 cardbase was dry embossed with the Stampin' Up Subtle Embossing Folder, which adds a pretty linen look. The circle was adhered in place with low loft foam tape.

The sentiment was stamped with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed white. A sentiment label die was used to cut it out. It was adhered in place with a combination of liquid glue and foam tape
