Peaceful Poppies with Peaceful Moments

I love these bright poppy cards!  I could not choose a favorite color combination.  Which do you love?

I used several combinations:
Poppy Parade with Flirty Flamingo (all my leaves are Pear Pizzazz and Old Olive)

These Gorgeous Grape and Highland Heather combinations with the Mango Medley - I thought perfect for Easter

Do you see how I changed up the borders a bit? Some show the white base and others don't.  I like to vary my borders and see which look I like best (and then create a lot!)

This one on the left is a combination of Flirty Flamingo and Melon Mambo (a darker pink). and the one on the right is Poppy Parade and Flirty Flamingo

I scattered a few of our classic rhinestones and used the Peaceful Moments sentiment set (that set has had quite the work out over the past few months).

I think this one is my favorite.  Inside the greeting is about having a Peaceful Passover. I don't make too many Passover cards but hope this one works.

And finally a deeper card, no bling, for a sympathy card.

I'd love to know which is your favorite combination.  

Tips on making these cards:  I cut a big bunch of the flowers and tried different layers.  The top pink poppy has a Poppy Parade overlap and the bottom has Melon Mambo

I selected which I liked better and then assembled with the leaves.  Tip: use the white glue only on the center of the flower and let the edges stay unglued as this gives a nice 3d look with the layering.  And otherwise it would be easy to glue everywhere!

I matched the ink in the flowers to the sentiment so the focus stays on the flowers.

Stay tuned, all week I'll be posting projects using these poppy sets.  They are on pages 24-27 in the mini catalog.  

Happy crafting MaryKate
