Red Poppies with a Bee

My aunt has always sent me small note cards and I have loved them. I have been so focused on A2 size that I forgot there are many sizes that will mail with a single stamp. This one is 3 1/2×4 1/4. That is the leftover size I can get from cs when I cut a 5 1/2×4 base. See how out of the stuck spot I am getting? I make my own envelopes so they came in what ever size I want.

For this care the poppies were Silhouette cut on white cs then stamped in black and then water colored. The bee was jet printed on tissue paper, fussy cut then white glue watered down over pp, placed bee and added more glue. Once dry the pp strip was adhered to white cs base with glue dots. Popped up the poppies with Pinflair Glue Gel. Mat for sentiment was Silhouette cut then stamped in black ink and adhered with glue dots. I had areas where the glue gel got away from me so I used shimmer spray over finished project to hide those areas.

  • Tip: Here is my go to site when looking for graphics (this is where I got the bee used here): Graphics Fairy
  • Help aid: Best page to confirm my card will go through mail: Sizes for Letters
