Layered Spring Poppy Card

Here is the three-layered dimensional card I made with Memory Box's poppy die:

First of all, I die cut two negative poppy images on the white cardstock and save the positive image of the left side. I also die cut another positive poppy from a piece of white cardstock.

Then, I colored the poppies with Dover Blender and pigment ink pads. I also colored the negative portion for the right-hand poppy on the white card. For one of the positive poppy images, I die cut the poppy on the white craft foam and back it up with one of the colored poppy images to create dimension (see below photo).

I stamped the white cardstock background with light grey text stamp and used the die cut inlay technique to attach the left-hand side poppy into the text background. Then, I attached the text background with foam tapes on top of the white cardstock - make sure to align with the right-hand side colored poppy. Final step is to attach the poppy backed with white craft foam in the middle of the poppies. Finish the card by stamping the greeting and glued some silver dots of Irresistibles Pico Embellisher. Below is a side look of the card to see the three dimensions of poppy layers:
