   For this card I cut away a 1.25 inch strip from the the front of a 5 inch by 7 inch card and then matted juniper coloured card to the inside and front. Patterned paper from a paper bag was matted onto the front piece.


 The poppy seed head image from an Exclusive Images (now Chocolate Baroque) stamp was coloured using Promarkers and matted onto pale green card. Faux stitching was done using a Sakura souffle pen around the edge and then it was fixed to the right hand side of the inside card. Plain white card was also matted onto a piece of green card and fixed to the left of this so that a personal greeting could be added.

  A poppy image, also from Exclusive images, was created in the same way as the seed head image and fixed centrally to the front of the card. Butterflies were stamped, coloured and glittered and then fixed to the card with glue gel along with swirls and a sentiment.
