Poppy Gift Set


On today's Free for All Friday, the team is showing off some pretty creations with our lovely Poppy Patch Set.

I've got some pretty orange poppies at home, so I was inspired to create something with orange!  Actually this was a little card and gift card holder I made for our youngest son's teacher at the end of the school year.


This set was watercolored with our Letraset Aqua Markers on watercolor paper, it really gives you that vivid orange you're looking for which is fabulous.  


Card, using some accents with my Spellbinders and some seam binding.   


I created a little wrap for my gift card...inside pictures ahead...


Here it is open, with stamping of the poppies on the inside as well.  Sorry it was a wonky angle and my lamp was in the way :)  I always think that FUN reading is a good gift for a teacher in the summer, so a gift card to a bookstore was what it was this year.  


Folded up a little.... I believe the dimensions were 3 x 11, I just can't remember the score marks, sorry!  It MIGHT have been 3.5, 4, 7.5 and 8.  That made the cover just a wee bit shorter so that the oval could be attached and hang over.  

And a closeup of the coloring.  I just LOVE these Prima Monarch Flower Centers.  I think they add the perfect touch of bling to the closure!

Now what's really cool is that we're offering a new cut file for the Silhouette for the Poppy Set!  The link is located HERE.  

Letraset Aqua Markers used:  Spring Green, Citrus, Bamboo, Scarlet, Flame Red, Sunburst Yellow, Rose Carmine and Aquamarine.  

Check out what the rest of the Design Team has to show you with this lovely set today!
