Designer Tip: You can choose to “fussy-cut” the stamped suede poppies, or use the matching die-cuts to make it easier.

- Card front: Place a blank card with the fold your left and cover with black cardstock.
- Using the #2 stamp from each large poppy (the three stamps that have stems), stamp three stemmed poppy images onto 4 ½”x6” white cardstock. Do not stamp the rest of the layers. Stamp “Where flowers bloom, so does hope” in the bottom right hand area. Place the ruler 1/8” from each edge of the cardstock and use the pen to draw a broken squiggly line along the straight edge, with dots, as shown. Glue the panel centered on your card.
- Stamp the three stemmed poppy images onto red suede paper, letting the stems go off the edge of the paper. Place the matching poppy cutting dies over each stamped suede image, tape in place, then run through your die-cutting machine. Glue the red poppies over the black and white poppies on the card.
- Card inside: Stamp one stemmed poppy, then stamp again on suede, cut out and glue the poppy in place. Stamp “Where flowers bloom, so does hope” on scrap paper and loosely cut around the sentiment, then cut away the word “hope”. Lightly glue this mask onto your card below the flower, then stamp the sentiment onto the mask again, aligning the words. Remove the mask and the word “hope” will remain. Draw a broken squiggly line 1/8” from the left and bottom edges, as shown.
