Poppies and Fairies

Hi all,  Madge here for another Wonderful Wednesday.  I have a friend who loves poppies…..and she has retired after 32 years on the job.  By the time this is posted it should be safe, as we are taking her out for lunch and surprising her with a gift certificate.  Did you know that OCS P1010337offers Gift Certificates??  A couple of hints in the right direction and you could be taking advantage of a GC from your hubby or children.

Ok, on with my card.  I made a Tri-fold Shutter card using a stamp set from the fairyopolis Flower Fairy series, doing paper tole on the image and placing it on a piece of watercolored paper.  In the center, I needed to add some stabilizer to the card, so stamped a poppy (from a Flourishes set called Poppies and Daisies) onto a transparency and glued it to the top and bottom.   This time I intentionally coated the image with Base Coat nail polish. 


Here is the closed version of the card.  Only 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. 


Hope you’ll take time to enter the OCS May Challenge for “Mothers”.

Remember, “Stamp up a storm, ink up a wish and send it on to someone to make their day”.

Isn't this a pretty card with the red poppy and fairy in red! I'm a fairy-a-holic and this card has my vote as simply beautiful. I think the fold of this card is cool, too. Hugs, Gail
