Week 41 of the Colour creations Blog-Hop 2023-24 - Poppy Parade


Hello and welcome to you all. This week we are featuring Poppy Parade, This is a lovely bright red colour and part of the Brights Collection. I have chosen to make a male card this week using the Trusty Tools Bundle and the DSP from the Sale-a-Bration Catalogue. I'm really loving this set as it's just so lovely for a man....
This is called a Criss Cross Card, so I started with a Poppy Parade card base and using the lovely DSP added my front layers to the card. I then punch out the Decorative Circle and added a 2inch plain circle, that I stamped with the nuts & screw stamp. I cut the tools out of the DSP and placed these on top. Attaching to the front of the card with dimensionals.  The insert for this card slides out for you to write your message onto. I stamped my message at the top and more of the nuts and screws.

But I don't like cards that wont stand up on their own, so I added a stand to the back of the card so that it can be displayed nicely.

All the items used in this project a current at the time of being published, but the DSP will finish on the 29th Feb 2024 as this is a Sale-a-Bration item. If you would like to know more about these product on the design of my card please feel free to contact me. I have no idea who will receive this card at the present time. But I'm sure they will like it as much as I do.

  1. What a fun fancy fold! It's a great choice for this DSP. I love how the sentiment does double duty on the card.

  2. Such a great, creative, style of card, Di. Trusty Tools is a wonderful bundle, and the paper so much fun to play with. You've showcased Poppy Parade beautifully with these fun products.

  3. I love your fancy fold Di and the stand on the back is a great idea, I don’t like cards that can’t stand on their own either

  4. Such a great fancy fold card Di and a fabulous way to feature the Trusty Tools paper.

  5. Totally agree with you, Di, this bundle is awesome. I love that you added the stand at the back, as I like to stand my cards up to display also.

  6. Oh Di, this criss cross card is perfect for a man and I particularly love the stand you have created at the back.

  7. Fantastic card Di! I love that you made a stand for it! I too dislike a card that won't stand so have to make stands for the ones that lay down! Love the criss cross and the pull out design!
