This week I’ll be sharing several projects all using the Painted Poppies and Poppy Parade suite of products in the Stampin’ UP! Jan-June mini catalog. Be sure to come back Wednesday for a Congratulations card and Friday for a Happy Birthday Card with a cool new box to store or gift the cards in.
The Poppy Parade Designer Series Paper is certainly the star of this show. I wanted something soft for a sympathy card. There are many ‘happy’ designs in this paper stack that didn’t fit my needs but these three certainly did.
I used a really simply ‘fun’ fold layout today. The 4-1/4 x 11 poppy parade cardstock is scored at 5-1/2 and 2-3/4. The remaining measurements are down below.
I jazzed up the inside, without adding any bulk, by embossing the two label dies from the Painted Labels die set. To do this I used Big Shot Embossing Mats. Instead of cutting the paper, the die simply embosses it to add texture.
- Poppy Parade card base 11 x 4-1/4 scored at 5-1/2 and 2-3/4
- Whisper White 2-5/8 x 4-1/8
- Poppy DSP 2-1/2 x 4
- 2 pieces of Whisper White 2-3/4 x 4
- Blackberry Bliss DSP 2-5/8 x 3-7/8
- Pool party striped DSP 4×5-1/4
- Scrap Pool Party and Whisper White large enough for die-cutting
