frosted paper pink California poppies

California Dreaming

These delicate frosted paper California poppies are a perfect flower to make with the cutting machine. They have detailed centers and leaves so our text weight frosted paper gives them a pink sky sunset glow. You can even add a gradation with the pale gold PanPastel as I demonstrate in the photo tutorial below.

When finished, you can arrange your frosted paper California poppies into a bouquet as a gift, pop them on top of a wrapped gift, or pot them to create some pretty home decor.
