Today I’m taking part in the Pootles Team Birthday Blog Hop for birthdays in July, mine is on the 25th and for this hop I decided to use my favourite products to create a birthday card for myself…just in case hubby forgets!
So here is my card
Can you guess how old I am? For this card I used my very favourite stamp set Blooms & Wishes and four of the new In-Colours: Fresh Fig, Berry Burst, Powder Pink and Tranquil Tide. I used all three of the large flowers and a couple of the smaller ones and stamped them in a random pattern all over my card. I added some leaves in Tranquil Tide and to fill in all the little gaps I used the small dotted stamped from Birthday blooms in Powder Pink.
I die cut the Happy Birthday Thinlit in Copper Foil and cut it in half to create my greeting. I also cut out the numbers 3 and 4 from the Large Number Thinlits set. I made a middle strip to mount the greeting on with Powder Pink.
I cut out the largest scalloped circle from the Layering Circles Framelits in Powder Pink and the largest circle in Whisper White. I then took the “TH” stamp from Number of Years and embossed it in copper a the edge of the circle.
To finish the card I mounted the numbers on my circle and added it to the card.
I hope you enjoyed me card today. To see other cards in the blog hop click the blue box below.

Wow! such a gorgeous card 🙂
Beautiful Card, TFS x
Love this card! Thank you for sharing. I’m trying to work out how you made it and I’m struggling with the dimensions of the base card. Could you please let me know what size you used. I think it is a non standard size but can’t work it out. Thank you 🙂
The card base is bigger than a normal card. It’s a sheet of A4 folded in half, so the size would be 21cm x 14.5cm
Beautiful card and a Happy Birthday for the 25th of the month. xx
