Peaceful Poppy Napkin Die Cut Technique

I’m not sure which I like more the way the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series paper has the distressed looking highlights or the unique coloring created by the napkin taking up the ink, but I really do like the amount of depth and the soft look that the combination creates. The only difficult part making this card was actually adhering the colored napkin die cuts to the card. If you get glue on your hands they tend to stick to the napkin and pull the layer apart. So that is my one caution with this technique, keep your hands free of glue!


1.  Start with a card base of Thick Very Vanilla.  Cut 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″.  Score at 4 1/4″.

2.  Cut a piece of Peaceful Moments DSP 3″ X 5 1/2″ and adhere to center of card front.

3.  Fold the white napkin so that there are 8 layers. Die cut the small outline poppy and the leaf stem.

4.  Place a drop of Cherry Cobbler ink in a painters tray well or onto a clear block. Add a drop of water from the Aqua Painter and mix with the ink. Place the napkin cut outs onto a silicon mat. Use the Aqua Painter to paint the napkin poppy outline. Do the same with the Old Olive ink and leaves.

5.  Let dry completely before moving.

6.  Cut out a solid background poppy from watercolor paper. Use the Aqua Painter and Cherry Cobbler ink to paint. Let dry.

7. Use Tombo liquid glue to adhere the poppy and leaves to the DSP.

8.  Add greeting with Tuxedo ink.
