Floral Birthday with My Favorite Things

Hello and Wellcome to my blog!


Today I am sharing a birthday card I created for my mother-in-law for her birthday using products from My Favorite Things, Altenew, and Simon Says Stamp.


I don't know about you but I have ordered many products over the years and sometimes they sit for quite awhile before I have a chance to use them. That is the case with these products.

I started this project by stamping the MFT Painted Prints with Altenew Inks. I used Frosty Pink, Coral Berry, and Ruby Red for the flowers and Frayed Leaf and Forest Glades for the leaves. I die cut the flowers with the Coordinating Dies.

I used MFT Dynamics Flower Vase die to die cut a vase with white cardstock. I inked the vase with some Distress Oxide Ink in Spun Sugar and added a little gold detail with some gold thread from my stash.

I arranged my flowers and leaves in the vase and set it aside.

I took a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock and embossed it with a Sizzix embossing folder to give my card some texture. I layered it on my card base and added a tag that I had splattered with a little Altenew Watercolor that coordinates with the ink I used for the flowers. To the tag I added more of the gold thread,

For the sentiment I used the Handlettered Happy Birthday Die from Simon Says Stamp. I die-cut the sentiment in white cardstock and heat embossed it a few times with some Recollections Sparkling Clear Gold Embossing Powder. This matched perfectly with the gold thread I had used on the vase and tag. The sentiment die is actually long so I cut it apart so that I could stack it on the card.

Once I had all of my elements completed I layered them on the card.

Thank you for stopping by! I hope to see you again!
