It's my sister's birthday today, here's the card I made for her.
The poppy was made with a Sizzix, Susan's Garden die, I coloured it with Spun Sugar Distress Ink and black Pan Pastel, then shaped the petals with the Susan's Garden tool kit, that I got for my birthday. The tool kit is amazing, a real asset to anyone who regularly makes their own flowers, I can see mine getting very heavy use. The die too is lovely, I feel a collection from this range coming on, so far I only have to poppy, but I expect I'll pick up a few more at the SECC next month.
To embellish, I've used lace, ribbon, a bow, feathers, a twine threaded button, pearls, gems, and I've finished off with a sentiment stamped with a Kanban ticket stamp.
