Poppy Parade is another one of this years new In Colors. Don’t you love it?
Although I would consider Poppy Parade a red it has a definite hint of orange to it as well. Since it is such a vibrant colour, I knew it would pair well with the Newsprint designer series paper that will be in the next catalogue. These papers are really neat – dictionary pages, old catalogues, vintage maps, music and more. And do you wanna know a secret? The new catalogue has coordinating sets and accessories for this vintage looking paper. The Newsprint designer series paper is Basic Black and Very Vanilla so I choose to use only those colours with Poppy Parade for this card.
To make this card, I Iayered a 3-1/2 x 4-3/4" piece of Newsprint paper onto 3-5/8" x 4-7/8" Basic Black cardstock. I wrapped this piece with Basic Black satin ribbon and Very Vanilla grosgrain ribbon tying a small knot in the grosgrain.
I made the daisy with the Daisies #2 die for the Big Shot in layers of Basic Black, Poppy Parade and Newsprint paper. To hold the flower together, I added a 5/8" Vanilla jumbo brad to the center.
After adding a greeting in Basic Black ink on Newsprint paper and punching with the Modern Label punch, I layered onto a larger piece of Poppy Parade cardstock and added a 5/16" vanilla jumbo brad.
Finally, I layered Poppy Parade cardstock onto a Basic Black card and assembled the pieces. A really easy card!
This card has more of a shabby chic look to it than most of my cards. Do you like it? Please leave a comment and let me know.
