This shaped card was created with the "Elegant Edges" and "Art Nouveau" cartridges.  The card base was created by welding two of the shadow (shift) features of the shape on page 29 of the "Elegant Edges" handbook.  It is sized at 5 1/4."  I then used the oblong (shift) feature for the black layer, again at 5 1/4."  The white layer is the same as the black, just 5."

The poppy image is from "Art Nouveau," page 22.  It is cut at 4 1/2."  I inked the edges of the lighter green leaves with peeled paint Distress Ink.  The flower is inked with tea dye Distress Ink and the black center is flocked.  I also added a little dimension by adhering the front petal with foam tape at the top part.

The sentiment is from My Craft Spot, the With Deepest Sympathy set.  It is stamped with summer sky ink by Tsukineko.  I tied three pieces of baker's twine into a bow and added it to the flower to finish off the card.

I made this for the following challenges:
