Poppy Birthday

You may remember from my box card-athon a while back that I made a poppy card and decided to keep it for a birthday.

Well, I kept it for Mum's birthday.

I added a little bit more to the inside for a message and made a box for it.

This is the card front.  I've used the Stampin' Up poppies stamp and coloured some of the flowers with copics and punched them out - layering them on more punched shapes.

SU sentiment also on punched shapes and finished with card layers and a couple of itty bitty punched shapes with gems in the centre.

The middle of the card has the main image and I've stamped the flowers twice, cut them out and added them with foam pads for a 3D effect.

I've then added a couple of card layers to the inside and added a tag with an SU sentiment.

And this is the box - not highly decorated but with some of the little flowers to match the front of the card and a tag to write on.

It makes it more of a surprise when you open the box then!


  1. Lovely box JIll...poppies are always a favourite and you done a wonderful job on your box card......a very lucky person who gets this...
