Card Concept Birthday set


I've been on a mission to make some more birthday cards for my stash, so when I saw the current challenge at Card Concept I thought it was a great opportunity to create some cards for my collection...

I was inspired by the flowers, the fab frosted cake and the woodgrain in the background, and so came up with this...

I used a combination of the Blossoms originals die as well as the pansy punch to create the flowers with Real Red and Strawberry Slush and Pool Party card. I added a Naturals button in the centre of each. I had so much fun making one card that I ended up making some more...

I think these definitely fit the 'clean and layered' card style!

Here's the recipe:
Stamps: Hardwood, Blooming with Kindness
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake
Paper: Naturals White, Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Real Red, Strawberry Slush, Pool Party, Pear Pizzazz
Accessories: Naturals buttons, Crumb Cake seam binding
Tools: Angled Tag topper punch, Beautifully Baroque EF, Little Leaves sizzlit, pansy punch, blossoms die

These also fit with the Paper Players challenge this week:

I've followed the top line: a birthday card using the tag topper punch, pansy punch and blossoms die with some ribbon!

Thanks for stopping by...
