For this weeks hop, I decided not to go with a Christmas card, although I still have plenty left to make! I went for a birthday card. It was one of our fellow Pootler’s birthday last week, Ania! it was also my daughter’s birthday yesterday so sticking with birthday’s I made the card below.


For todays card I used the Cottage Greetings Stamp Set. I wanted this stamp set for so long, it is so pretty but up to yet I have not got around to using it.


For my card base is used Mint Macaron A4 Cardstock cut at 4 1/8 inches and scored at 5 7/8 inches.


Then taking some of the Pretty Petals Designer Series Paper Stack I took the main piece measuring 3 5/8 inches x 3 5/8 inches and the smaller piece measuring 3/4 inches x 3 5/8 inches and adhered it to a mat of Very Vanilla Cardstock measuring 3 7/8 inches x 3 7/8 inches and 1 inch x 3 7/8 inches. I popped these up on to my card base with some Stampin Dimensionals.


Taking the Banner Triple punch and some more DSP and Very Vanilla cardstock I punched out two banners. I sponged the edge of the Very Vanilla cardstock with some Mint Macoron Classic Ink. I popped this up on some Dimensionals and added some In Colour Blossom Accents.


Taking one of the itty bitty flower images from the stamp set I stamped this on to some Very Vanilla Cardstock and punched it out with the 7/8 inch Scallop Circle Punch. I took the 1 inch circle punch and punched out a piece of the Mint Macaron Cardstock and again with the 1 1/4 inch scallop punch punched out a piece of the Very vanilla cardstock. I sponged all the edges and popped this up on some dimensionals.


For the inside of my card I used a piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock measuring 3 7/8 inches by 5 5/8 inches and stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment in Mint Macaron Classic Ink and using some of the gorgeous flower stamps, stamped along the bottom for added decoration and because I couldn’t help myself, they are adorable!



So that’s my card for this week, Ania I hope you had a lovely birthday!

Thanks for hopping by today xx
