Blossoming Cherry Shaker ~ Power Poppy


Happy Friday!!  It's been awhile since I've posted, and I am so glad to be back.  Sometimes life gets in the way of creative time, and when that happens, I get itchy to get back in my studio.

Today I used a Power Poppy digital image called Blossoming Cherry.  It's so soft and delicate and I just love this sentiment that comes with it.  Now, let me start by saying how much digital images used to intimidate me.  I used to avoid them at all costs.  Now, I love how versatile they are.  I can make them any size I want, and manipulate them to my hearts desire.  That's what I did with this Blossoming Cherry image.  I wanted a floral frame, so I just kept turning the image until I created the type of frame I was looking for.


I also wanted to make it a shaker card to amp up the "fun" and interactive aspects.  So here you have it.  My Blossoming Cherry Shaker card.  It's 5 1/4" x 5 1/4".  It's rather large.  For the background panel, I just cut it to size and scored every 1/4" both directions.

That's it for my project today.  For some more delicious Power Poppy inspiration, check out the following blogs:
