Birthday Bunch

Sorry for the super poor quality of this photo - can't wait til its summer and its light for longer so I can photograph outside in the sunshine and warmth! 

Today's card was for my downline, Sue, co-incidentally also my auntie-in-law.

Birthday Bunch

Stamp Set: Everything Eleanor, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Crumb Cake, Wild Wasabi, Perfect Plum
Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Wild Wasabi, Perfect Plum
Punch: Scallop Circle, Corner Rounder
Accessories: Linen Thread

I wanted to just try and make a little bit of a different card using my favourite stamp set, Everything Eleanor! I cracked out the stem - not one I've felt inspired to use until now! So I stamped the stem twice and then using the scallop circle and cutting each petal almost to the centre wrapped them up tightly and adhered them to the Vanilla cardbase. I used the fancy frame down the side, stamping it 3 times without reinking for differing shades. Finally I stamped the sentiment in Perfect Plum and tied some linen thread around the stems. Hope you liked this little one.

Catch you tomorrow for another Simply Stampin' Challenge!

  1. Such a pretty card! Love the 3D flowers!

    1. Thanks. Think next time I might do a bit of sponging to just make them a little more realistic! x
