Birthday Blossoms

I'm having a play with my new stamp set - you've totally got to love a stamp set that has gorgeous fonts and greetings, as well as a great flower that coordinates with a punch - easy peasy crafting!!

This card coordinates Birthday Blossoms with Petite Petals and uses the great colours from the colour challenge at JAI this week AND it's a little square card too!!

Be sure to jump on over to these two challenge sites and check out all the fantastic inspiration from the design teams!!

What do you think of the vellum brick wall?? Doesn't it look fabulous!!
And those little flower centres were punched from some washi tape stuck onto cardstock using the little flower from the Tree Builder Punch, and the larger flowers feature a 1/2" circle and washi tape centres!!  What a great way to have some lovely shiny centres!!!


  1. Birthday Blossoms is my new favourite stamp set, and I love how you've used it, Julia. Cute flower centres! Thanks for playing along with us at Just Add Ink this week. :)

  2. This is a delightful card spilling over with flowers Julia. I love your idea of creating shiny washi centres. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.

  3. So, so gorgeous!! Absolutely love that vellum wall, was wondering what it was made of! And those flowers look brilliant all layered on each other. Stunning card and I'm so glad you joined us at Just Add Ink this week!
