I hope everyone enjoyed the Memorial Day holiday weekend. I have a very simple almost White card to share with you today that puts all the attention on the beautiful frame and I finished the card with four fabulous Red Prim Poppies.
With the M-Bossabilities I embossed the background to start, then die cut the Fleur De Lis Square and Classic square. I created a frame with the Martha Stewart Rain Drop and mounted the Fleur De Lis Square on top using mounting tape to give it some dimension.
I then die cut four Prim Poppies in red cardstock and used Sakura 3D Lacquer glaze to make them shine and when dry glued them inside the frame. To finish I added a few sprigs of green branch leaves. Very simple and fun to make.

With so many Memory Box dies to choice from you can create lots of scenic cards. I like to take a dryer sheet and rub it over the die before I cut, I find it releases the die and bits of paper do not stick to the die.
I have a fun project to share with you today using nothing but Memory Box dies. To create the card scene I started with the Leaf Canopy on the main part of the card. Then I die cut several Arboscello trees and glued them together and used glitter on the leaves. Next, I die cut several Nestled Birds, glued them together and used mounting tape. I used the same technique for the Willow Dragonfly, Puffy Clouds, Deer Trio, Grassland Border and Prim Poppy. The Meadow Leafs and Wildflower Patch are just a single die cut.
Just add a drop of glue and glitter to get the objects to stand out from the card.
I really like how the card turned out and it is easy to make.

To create the background I used the Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page - Raindrop Punch, then layered it with a Tan piece of cardstock and placed mounting tape under the white Quatrefoil frame.
I then added the green Tropical floral die, the Scalloped circle and the blue bird. To create most of the flowers use the Martha Stewart punches and layer them. The red flowers are the Memory Box Prim Poppy die with glitter on them.
Very easy card to make and most the flowers where created using scraps of cardstock.
