Thank You Poppies

Today's card is bright and cheery, and was the perfect foil to the gloomy day that it was created on.  I'm not typically a fan of yellows and oranges, but they really pop on this card, and draw out the warmth of the gold embossing.  

Colorful Poppy Flowers frame the golden heat embossed Thank You on this handmade stamped card.  Mutiple colors of hybrid fusion ink were layered to create the beautiful flowers.  Using Fun Stampers Journey Poppy Days Stamp Set, and Everyday Script Stamp and Die Set.

I started by cutting my card base and mats.  I lined them up, and positioned my die and stamp where I wanted them.  Using a bit of painters tape, I was able to secure the die in place to cut out the top layer of the card.   Then I lined my layers back up, and stamped my sentiment in Clear Embossing Ink in the die cut area.  I heat embossed the sentiment in gold, then moved on to stamping my flowers on the top layer.

I used Post-It note masks to keep the stamped images from overlapping as I stamped.  Once my flowers were in place, I sprinkled some Gold Silk on the top panel.  Then I layered my panels together with Foam Squares, and adhered everything to my card base.
