Welcome Digi Divas! I'm excited to share with you My Patriotic Poppies Card! I was recently reminded that Armed Forces Day is May 20th, National Poppy Day is May 26th and Memorial Day is May 29th.

Let's get started... Using 4095J- Patriotic Poppies Digital Stamp Set, size the main image to 3-1/4"x5-1/2" on one half of the page. Copy and paste one second half of the page.

Pick a sentiment, size and place at bottom of page as shown.

Print on Hammermill® White 100lb. Coverstock.

Color as desired. I chose to use Copic® Markers.

Copic® color list is attached for the colors I used. Full list is above.

Cut around the bottom of the flower stems. Slide the largest Elizabeth® - Fitted Ovals die under the stems, align and run through the Big Shot®.

Fussy cut the blooms of the second image.

On the backside of the Gold foil cardstock trace around the outer side of the largest Elizabeth® Fitted Ovals die and fussy cut.

Edge the oval image using Dew Drop Brilliance® Galaxy Gold.

Center and adhere the oval image on to the Gold Foil oval.

Apply Foam® Tape to the backside of the fussy cut blooms.

Align the fussy cut images over the blooms on the oval and adhere using Foam® Tape.

Cut a 2-1/2"x7" rectangle of stars and edge using VersaMagic®- Ocean Depth. Cut a 2-1/2"x7" rectangle of the striped and edge using Distress Ink® - Candied Apple.

On the 5"x7" gate fold cardbase adhere the

2-1/2"x7" star rectangle to the left front flap.

Adhere the 2-1/2"x7" striped rectangle to the right front flap as shown.

Center and adhere the oval image to the star front flap as shown. Be careful NOT to adhere the image to the striped rectangle.

Using the Nesting Stitch® Party Banners Die,

center over your sentiment and run through the Big Shot®.

Edge the sentiment using Dew Drop Brilliance®- Galaxy Gold and adhere about 1" from the bottom of the card using Foam® Tape.

OPTIONAL: I like to use strips of leftover cardstock, edge, arrange and adhere to the backside of the cardbase with a name plaque as shown.

A completely "Patriotic Poppies" creation perfect for your Hero.
