Happy Birthday Poppies

This is my first post as new Design Team member on the Tutti Designs Blog....
have you seen these dies?
WOW...they are so intricate and them!!

Hi All, Diane with you today with my very first design team project 
using the new and gorgeous dies from Tutti Designs!

My creation for today is using the beautiful die
'Poppy Edge'.

I grow poppies in my own flower gardens
so this die couldn't be any more perfect for me!

I started my card by cutting the die twice.
Once from white card stock and a second one from orange card stock.

I cut the flowers apart, carefully rounding the cut edges a bit
to look like a real flower.

Two one inch black circles were punched
to put put behind each large flower.

I used a flower tool to give the flowers a bit of dimension.
The leaves and stems were colored with Copics.

Make sure and check out all the great places to
visit the new Tutti Designs dies.

Thank you for visiting with me today.....
"I" will be here each and every Thursday!!
Come back tomorrow for more fabulous inspiration!

This is AWESOME!!! I really love how you modified the poppies ... what a clever idea (I'll be remembering this one - I hope! lol) So glad you're on the team ... you always have such wonderful ideas to share! Have a wonderful day!

Just beautiful. The black circle gives it so much dimension.

LOVE what you did with these poppies! Now I think I need them and I'm totally making a mental note of how you punched the black for behind the centers. Don't know how long that mental note will stick with me. Just preordered five new fall and Christmas Tutti dies. What is wrong with me? Now I really have to get a move on to use my last order. Sheesh!
