Cut a piece of red paper 5" x 7.5" and ink round the edge with Harmony Water reactive ink pad Chinese Red. On this paper stamp the Heartfelt Creations Blazing Poppy Stems using Black Versafine Ink and colour in using Spectrum Noir Aquablend Watercolour Pencils. Adhere this to the mirri card using red liner tape.

Stamp the Heartfelt Creations Blazing Poppy Stamp onto white card stock and colour with Harmony Water Reactive inks Chinese Red & Bordeaux. Then place the die Heartfelt Creations Blazing Poppy in position over the top and die cut.
Shape the flowers using a flower shape tool, adhere the smaller petals on top of the larger ones with gel glue to make the flowers and put to one side to dry.

Die cut two Heartfelt Creations Regal Boarders & Pockets with the straight edge and die cut one Creative Expressions French Collection Burgundy omitting the center piece, put these to one side.

Adhere the two Regal Boarders & Pockets dies to the top and bottom of the card as seen using PVA glue then adhere the burgundy die with banner under the top die cut so you can still see the stamped Blazing Poppy Stems underneath.
Place a Black sparkly gem in the center of your poppies, arrange and adhere them with gel glue to the side of the card so they cover the edge of the Burgundy die and banner.
