Tall Poppy by Laura Drahozal


  1. ​Cut the base card stock to 8 1/2" by 5 1/2" and fold on the side.
  2. Using the clear handle and the Versamark Ink, stamp the wired stamp onto brown card stock.  Stamp it several times.
  3. Pour Aged Copper Enamel over the top of the card stock and pour off the excess.
  4. Use the heat tool to emboss the enamel.
  5. Cut the metal to slightly larger than the Poppy Stencil.
  6. Place the poppy stencil face up on the base of the manual die cut machine.
  7. Place the metal, green side up on top of the stencil.
  8. Cover the metal with the rubber embossing mat and the embossing mats for your machine.
  9. Run the project through your machine, but do not remove the metal from the stencil.
  10. Use the teflon tool to press the metal around the inner edges of the poppy and leaves.
  11. Drop a couple of drops of alcohol ink remover into the poppy sections that you would like to color.
  12. Use the cotton swabs to soak up the excess alcohol ink remover.
  13. Drop a couple of drops of color in each part of the poppy except for the leaves.  Pick up any extra with the cotton swabs.
  14. Sand the project while the stencil is still attached.  This way, you can remove all the color from the background of the poppies.
  15. Remove the metal from the stencil and place on one side of the couble sided mounting paper (cut to size).
  16. Assemble the card.
