Heartfelt Creations Wednesday Blazing Poppy Thank You Card Tutorial
Happy Heartfelt Creations Wednesday! Today I have a bright, bold Blazing Poppy Thank You Card to share with you, along with a tutorial so that you can make your very own.
I did some stamping, some die cutting, some embossing and lots of layering on this 5″ x 7″ card. This poppy red cardstock and the black accents just seem to be a match made in heaven.
I spritzed my stamped and colored image with some Gold Glimmer Mist. The flower centers are either beads, or Prima Flower Centers.
Black satin ribbon and gold metallic string carry out the theme. I also added some pretty Antique Gold Faux Wired Burlap to the card base to add texture.
I created a fun gift card pocket on the inside of the card.
Here’s the tutorial: (I’ve linked all the HC products to the online store for your convenience.)
