Hello everyone! Happy Friday! I drew the flower pod in our Flower Circles Stamp Set
with a poppy pod in mind. It makes me smile every time I see it in use. This week's Five for Friday, I'm sharing some love for poppy pods.

I like how Michelle describes the poppy pods: they are "like little jewels of the garden".
Poppy Pod Bouquet Card
I was so inspired by the poppy pod bouquet photo that I made this card:

Poppy Pods: Flower Circles Stamp Set
"Love You": Notions Stamp Set
Sentiment Diecut Surface – Tag Die – Scallop Add-on.
Here is how to create this look:
1. Stamp 5 pods on some scrap piece of white cardstock, using Peeled Paint
2. Cut-out closely following the stamp. Don't worry if you have white edges, the inking will cover them all up. Color the bottom half with Evergreen Bough
3. Color the top portion with Peacock Feathers
distress ink. Blend together. Add more color if needed.
4. Cut thin stripes of white cardstock (about 1/8") and color as shown below for the stems.
5. Adhere to card with foam adhesive for dimension.
Easy, right? I don't use my distress inks often but every time I use them, I am impressed with the results :) I had a lot of fun making this card!
