So many ways you could go with this! It’s perfect for soft florals, awesome for pretty baby and a wonderful wedding combination!
I’ve chosen a boho meets tribal theme…
I started with the arrow stamp (which I LOVE!) from the Heartfelt stamp set in Smoky Slate. I then created a floral posy using a combination of dies including the new Ladybug Dies (great for things other than ladybugs!) and the Bouquet Bunch Dies.
To get some colour variation from only two colours (Petal Pink & Soft Sea Foam), I used a combination of dies cut from ink blending on Whisper White and dies cut straight from cardstock.
Vellum always adds a nice touch to any floral spray and pearls are a great embellishment when you want a little extra elegance.
The card front was layered on Parisian Blooms DSP – Petal Pink with champagne foiling for the words.
I’ve left this card sentiment free, because I really love having cards in my stash that I can use for any occasion.

Spoiler alert team – if you don’t want to see what your birthday card for 2020 might look like, look away now!
I love celebrating birthdays! They are the most common reason I make cards and for this reason, I look for stamp sets and other products that will help me create something special for someone’s special day!
When I saw that the Ladybug Dies – one of the coordinating product releases available this month – had a swirly stitched die that looked exactly like a paper aeroplane trail, I was excited!!! My Stampin’ Up! team are called the Paper Adventures and our team motif is a paper aeroplane.
I’ve been very kindly gifted a fabulous Lawn Fawn paper aeroplane stamp set by a team member and use this for team cards, tags, stationary and wrapping. This year, the team birthday cards will feature the aeroplane & swirly trail – it’s a great match!
Here’s the first one of the year…
That lusciously pretty paper you see is another coordinating release – Pleased As Punch DSP. It features 3 sheets of 4 designs and the main side coordinates with 4 different punches (Tulip Builder, Umbrella Builder, Heart Punch Pack & Small Bloom (SAB)). The reverse side – which is what I’ve used here – is another 4 great patterns.
The happy birthday sentiment is from the Little Ladybug stamp set – which is free with every $500+ order until 31st March 2020 as part of the Sale-A-Bration fiesta!
As much as I love the amazing quality of Stampin’ Up! envelopes, sometimes I change things up a little and skip on the envelope, using a cute paper bag instead. This card is going to my birthday celebrating teamie in a Copper Dotted Treat Bag!
The card plus a small gift (which I can’t show you because that really would spoil the surprise for the whole team!) fits beautifully in the bag.
I won’t give anything away, but I will share that my gifts are always personalised and always a good addition to crafting life. Last year it was decorated notebooks everyone’s crafty ideas and notes.
