Using Mint Macaron* cardstock, a die cut flourish was adhered, followed by a punched/die cut Delphinium in blue, white and black cardstocks to match the DSP flower.
Three pieces were freehand cut from shades of pink cardstock and the edges sponged to match the poppy in the DSP. The pieces were stacked with thin foam tape. A punched center in white and dotted in black ink completed the poppy.
The die cut heart border in Mint Macaron* was adhered. A strand of thick twine was wrapped and tied and the stack was adhered to the card base. The inside of the card was decorated with a strip of Mint Macaron* cardstock. For more information visit the AHSC blog.

* This is not a misspelling. A macaron is a sweet meringue treat primarily served in France and is not related to our American macaroon biscuit-style cookie. Macarons are made in many lovely pastel colors.
