Pretty poppies dancing across your card are sure to make you smile.  The world looks so much more cheerful with an explosion of happy colors.

How to Make a Z Fold Card

Z Fold Card Tips

Cut Card Base 11" x 4-1/4" then score at 2-3/4" and 5-1/2".  Hint:  Be sure to use Thick Whisper White Card Stock for your base.  It makes all the difference.

Another hint:  When assembling poppies be sure that all your pieces are right side up or you will have difficulty matching the pieces.  But the good news is that they are a breeze to assemble if they are all facing up!
