Hello and thanks for stopping by....
This is an easy way to create a background for your card makes and I'm showing you 3 different looks using the same technique.  There will be a YouTube video available later today at:
Poppyfield Card Crafts JF

All the cards are 5"x7" with 3 panels decreasing by an eighth of an inch

Glue the top 3 panels together and set aside

 You must use glossy card for this technique

Cut the card to size then scrunch a piece of wax paper tightly then open it out

Place one glossy card face up, cover with the wax paper then place the second glossy card face down

Cover the area with a piece of copy paper then, with a hot, dry iron apply the heat to this area for approximately 1 to 2 minutes
Cover the glossy card with your chosen ink colour then, using a paper towel, polish the card (this removes the excess ink and leaves a shine).  Glue this to the panels then adhere to the card base

On the blue card I added a die cut from the striplet range (Creative Expressions), a swirl of black gems and a sentiment (Chinese Proverb)

The red and black card had black ribbon adhered to it, the sentiment was stamped and heat embossed onto black card, this was then glued to red card, mounting foam added to the back and 3 black gems adhered to the ribbon

The 3rd, white card base, has panels of brown and primrose card.  Once the top panel was coloured and glued to the other panels a yellow ribbon was adhered to it then these were adhered to the main card

Narrow, oblong panels of white, brown and primrose were cut to size and glued together, the sentiment was stamped onto white card with an Archival Ink Pad in Coffee

Until tomorrow....

Hello everyone After much heart and soul searching I have finally made the decision to close Poppyfield Card Crafts blog and YouTube channel...
