Build a Poppy Card - Poppy Appeal

I wanted to highlight a stamp set that is a good price yet still donating £1 to the Poppy Appeal for every set purchased, the Papermania Signature Build a Poppy stamp set is retailing at around £5.99 at many stamp shops.
The poppy was very easy to put together, I stamped with black ink onto read card stock then cut around the images 4 to each poppy then joined them together with a black brad, the brad is hidden as I dotted the center with black stickles. I used the Nestabilities circles to mount the poppy onto and a white base card was stamped at each corner with the sentiment. I finished the card with a black velvet ribbon and bow.


A close up photograph of the Poppy, I dotted the centre with Black diamond stickles and used a deep red promarker to give some depth to the flower.

Beautiful card Jak. I bought the stamp a couple of weeks ago. It really caught my eye and raises money for a really good cause as well.
