Firstly, create a (standard A6) card base from Whisper White Thick cardstock. Next you will need a piece of Whisper White Cardstock measuring 13.4 x 9 cm. This piece will form the main card front.

Use the Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies Stamp Set to stamp the main image, twice, in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Then create a mask by cutting a circle from a piece of scrap cardstock. I used the smallest circle from the Stitched Shapes Die Set.

With your mask in place, use a Sponge Brayer to apply ink to different parts of the image. The colours I used were: Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay, Gorgeous Grape, Granny Apple Green and Mango Melody.

Heat emboss the sentiment in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder onto Basic Black Cardstock. I used a sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Autumn Stamp Set. Cut out the sentiment using the largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Die Set. Make sure that the sentiment is placed towards the bottom left of the die cut. Adhere the circle to the card front and trim with Paper Snips. Finally, adhere the card front to the card base.
