It’s been quite a while since I’ve done any crafting, I just haven’t felt inspired recently despite having loads of gorgeous products to play with. Anyway it was my mum’s 60th birthday this weekend and I knew I wanted to make a special card for her that showed I cared, so I got out the Botanical Blooms Stamp Set and matching Framelits and had a real good play making all kinds of flowers. Here is the card I came up with
I really love how this card turned out and can highly recommend the Botanical Builder Framelits for bringing back you mojo if its gone walkabout. The colour scheme I chose came from the Falling In Love DSP which is just gorgeous, I need more before this catalogue ends. Along with Sugarplum and Very Vanilla I used the gold foil cardstock and some Mint Macaron as an accent colour.
On the inside I just stamped a boarder along the bottom using the flowers from Botanical builders and the leaf stamp comes from Blooms and Wishes, which had to be part of the card as its my favourite set. The greeting in the card comes from Balloon Adventures.
The card base was an 8″ x 8″ one which I had in my stash from my pre Stampin Up days. You could make a similar one using two sheets of Thick Whisper White and joining together.
I’m pleased to report my mum loved her card and I hope you did too.
