Rainbow Lino Backdrop Poppy Birthday Card

I can never resist bright colours on a card and regularly use my favourite combination of Distress Oxides. These new stamps from Clarity work perfectly with them.
Trim a piece of Clarity stencil card to 20cm x 13.8cm. Ink the small Distressed Linocut backdrop stamp with Festive Berries and Carved Pumpkin Distress Oxides and add it to the left-hand side.
Add the same stamp twice more in Mustard Seed and Mowed Lawn and also Salty Ocean and Wilted Violet Oxides.
Add ‘With Love on Your Birthday’ in Night Sky archival ink along the top using the Entwined sentiments stamps. Stamp twice to create a drop shadow effect.
Add the large poppy from the Poppy Linocut Flowers set into each rectangle in Nocturne Versafine Clair ink.
Add the small leaf inner from the same set to each poppy in the same way.
Use the same colours as before but this time in Distress inks to add the solid poppy heads and leaves to the flowers.
To finish, mat onto black card leaving a narrow border and add the topper to the front of a white A5 card blank.
