Flower of the Month

It’s been a couple of weeks since I joined in with my old friends The Daring Cardmaker’s,  but today I thought I’d make a card for their ‘Flower of the Month’ challenge and there are two to choose from this month, Poppy or Gladioli.

In a bid to use up some very old craft bits that I brought way back when I first started card making I thought I would use some Peel-Off’s.

Now I know that peel-off’s have a bad name in some camps and if I’m honest I don’t used them often myself other than the occasional greeting, but I remembered that I had these rather nice Poppies sitting in the box and they don’t look to bad when they are coloured.

I've printed the background directly onto my card, using the Artylicious ‘Season’s Greetings’.
I love this CD because although it’s intended for Christmas, there’s an awful lot that can be used at any time really, making it a good buy.

The Peel-Off’s were stuck to white card, coloured with Promarkers and then cut and layered along the edge of the card and around the bottom edge of the ovals that I cut with my Nesties.

And there you have it…..quick and easy, the way I like them!

What I’ve used:

Craft Creations – Embossed Hammer Card Stock

Craft Creations – Poppy and Butterfly Peel-Off’s

Craftworks Cards – Greeting

Promarker Permanent Ink Pens

Artylicious ‘Season’s Greetings’ CD

Ranger Distress Ink – Black Soot & Barn Door
