I am in the process of trying to decorate my boyfriend's house and didn't know what I wanted to do in the dining room. One day I was browsing one of the local Facebook groups that sell things and saw a poppy picture. I knew that would be the start of my decorating in that room and would decorate around that. What does that have to do with anything you ask? I started loving poppies then, this was around the first of the year and all of a sudden, I am seeing poppies everywhere, including the card making business, stamps and dies galore. I Brake For Stamps has a few really pretty poppy stamps including the one I am using on today's card. Here is a link to the I Brake For Stamps STORE. Here is a link to the stamp I am using called, Stained Glass Poppies.
I wanted to do something different so I made a square window card with this stamp. One of my friends lost a family member recently so I wanted to use this one as a sympathy card. I used Gina K Designs White, Red Hot and Sweet Corn card stocks. I colored the stamp with copics, which are listed below. I used a Lawn Fawn die called, Thinking About You Border. It is all one phrase but I cut it apart so it would fit on the card. I used the Silhouette Adhesive Sheets with the die so that all I would have to do is peel off the backing and stick it to the card, no worries about it coming unglued. I used a Cuttlebug Polka Dot embossing folder but only embossed part of the card. I used Diamond Stickles in the center of one of the flowers. The patterned paper on the inside is by Echo Park called Sweet Girl.
I just used a Spellbinders Classic Large Square die to cut out the opening for the window.
