Today, on ANZAC day we show our gratitude as we remember the men and women who have dedicated and sacrificed their lives to give us our freedom. For me, this is an extra special day. It’s 36 years today since I migrated to Australia. This country has offered me so much and provided me with a peaceful home for which I am so grateful, especially on days like these.

I gave a fresh twist on the Poppy Moments Dies, die cutting the poppies from Vellum and blending Poppy Parade ink on the back with a Blending Brush. Then I added the outline with Poppy Parade Cardstock. I really liked the subtle effect of the vellum. I used the heat gun on Setting 1 to dry the vellum from the reverse side to which I added colour on.

For the leaves, I used one of our new In-Colours, Parakeet Party and added Shaded Spruce to blend together on some Basic White Cardstock. Then I die cut the base layer with the top layer die cut from Parakeet Party Cardstock.

I used the Stamparatus to stamp the sentiment several times which created a nice crisp, dark image. Some of our new In-Colour Baker’s Twine and Matte Dots in Parakeet Party were added to complete the card.

My card has been inspired by the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches #532.
