ID: Easel Poppies - So Sorry card
size: 6.5"w  x 4.5"h (card closed)

Created: February 22, 2015

This is one of those rare times I'm not using a  Quietfire Design  calligraphic stamp... I had to do a bit of my own calligraphy...

I used cream cardstock for the whole card.


I die cut the Spellbinders "Fleur De Elegance" and sponged Distress "Scattered Straw" and then lightly with "Picked Raspberry". Removed from die. Used the negative shape to create an under layer image to cut with my electronic cutter.

I welded two under layers and cut out to create my easel. Folded where necessary. Cut another under layer and adhered it to the front.

Inked the poppies stamp (Rubber Necker) using Distress mini pads. All over the flower area with "Spun Sugar", then here and there with "Barn Door" and "Black Soot". All over the leaves & stems with "Peeled Paint" then lightly with "Forest Moss", misted with water and stamped, leaving the stamp in place for a count of 30. Adhered this layer to the front. Added the two teardrop red rhinestones.

For the floor, cut another under layer and dry embossed with Cuttlebug "Plum Blossoms" from the "Asian Bundle". Hit the high points with the raspberry sponge. Adhered to floor.

Die cut the smaller frame and created an under layer for my cutter. Sponged the die cut like the front piece. Calligraphed my words using a 2.5mm Parallel Pen and Sumi ink and Fraktur lower case letters. Adhered the two layers together then adhered to floor with 3D foam tape.



Die cut the ivy (Creative Expressions "Sue Wilson "Ivy"). Removed from die and used Distress acrylic daubers, first in "Antique Linen" and while wet, with "Peeled Paint". dried. Hit lightly with a Distress pad "Forest Moss". adhered to floor.
