No stamps or ink today. Just paper, punches and dies (with a Big Shot) were needed to make this retro poppy card come alive.
Using a Big Shot Die-Cut Machine and Bigz Flower Layers with Leaf Die, I cropped out the large Kiwi poppy and funky Tangerine flower. A large green Circle Rhinestone Brad and 1/2" circle of Chocolate Chip pull everything together in the center.
The "love" sentiment was created using Go Go Boots Alphabet Dies fashioned with Chocolate Chip Textured card stock. The wee heart in the corner is one of Stampin' Up!'s colorful new rub-ons, Bright Delights. The letters are layered over Very Vanilla and Chocolate Chip card stock.
The Eyelet Border Punch was responsible for the pretty detail on the Tangerine Tango Textured card stock. TIP: When I use Stampin' Up!'s Eyelet Border Punch and Scallop Edge Punch (not used here but similar engineering) on Textured Paper, it can leave an annoying little mark above the punched area. The simple solution is to flip the texture side down, when you punch. This way the textured side is perfect!
For a little more definition, I added a skinny strip of Chocolate Chip. It seemed like it needed something.Very Vanilla is matted on a 4.25 x 5.5 card base of Kiwi Kiss Textured card stock. Three green Circle Rhinestone Brads accent the bottom corner.
