Do you need a thank you card for your boss? Maybe you received a nice gift or even a bonus for the holidays and would like to express your appreciation. If your boss is a woman I think she'd love this handmade card. It's made using a few products included in the new Peaceful Poppies Suite Bundle. What do you think? These products are included in the upcoming Occasions Catalog, which begins January 3, 2020.
How to Make the Fancy Oval Design
The Stitched Shapes Dies were used to cut out same-sized ovals from Poppy Parade Card Stock and another one from Whisper White. Then I used a smaller oval to cut out the center of the Whisper White one.
Next I cut out the intricate floral design from the Poppy Moments Dies in Whisper White. I glued it to the back of the larger Whisper White oval with the center cut out. After it dried I cut along the outside of the oval to remove anything that extended beyond the edges. Then the white design was layered over the top of the solid Poppy Parade oval. I attached the poppy over that.
A paper pattern from the gorgeous Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper collection was chosen to run underneath the framed poppy. I layered that over a slightly larger piece of Poppy Parade Card Stock, after ripping the bottom edge a bit for some texture.
Before attaching the patterned paper piece to the top card front I wrapped a piece of Scalloped Lace Trim near the bottom and taped it to the back.
The “thank you” greeting came from the Free as a Bird stamp set. I wanted something smaller than the one that comes in the Peaceful Moments set, and I like the script font, too. It was stamped in Poppy Parade Ink on white card stock, then layered over a strip of Olive Green Card Stock.
Finally, a few Peaceful Poppies Sequins were scattered onto the front of the card.
