How To Guide - Step 1

Stamp the Poppy in Midnight, on to white card and use the coordinating die to cut it out. 

How To Guide - Step 2

From the Bokeh paper pad, die cut THREE different sized circles, each from a different patterned sheet. 

Adhere them to white card trimmed to 7 x 5" and use foam pads to affix your 3D Poppy over your Bokeh circles background. 

How To Guide - Step 3

Add a little water to the Black Soot and splatter over your artwork. I like lots of splats...but the choice is yours!!

How To Guide - Step 4

Trim another sheet from the Bokeh collection, to 7 1/4 x 5 1/4". 

How To Guide - Step 5

Adhere your artwork on to the Bokeh sheet and then on to your Teal card blank. Pop your card to one side. 

How To Guide - Step 6

Using the dies as a guide, cut ONE drop from the typewriter washi roll. Lift up the backing sheet along one end of the tape and adhere across the top of an A4 sheet of white card. Slowly peel away the backing, as you use your hand to smooth the washi tape down on to the card. Once the backing has been fully removed, you can burnish the washi to ensure there are no air bubbles or creases. 

How To Guide - Step 7

Line up the first die, securing with low tack tape and run it through your machine. 

How To Guide - Step 8

Line up the second die and run it through your machine. 

Pop out all the sentiments, pick out the one you are using for this project and keep the rest in a tub for future projects. 

How To Guide - Step 9

To finish, adhere your chosen washi sentiment, with foam pads, across the base of your 3D Poppy.
