In Bloom Birthday Card - Stampin' Dreams - Scraps

Hi Everyone,

I'm hopping today with the Stampin' Dreams group and the theme is 'Scraps'. I had a lot of bits of coloured card and wanted to play with the Pierced Blooms dies as they are retiring soon. I love making cards with these dies, they are so pretty, I'm really going to miss them but I'm sure there will be something equally gorgeous coming in the new catalogue that I will love just as much.


1 piece of bermuda bay card stock 5 7/8" x 8 1/4"
2 pieces of basic white card 3 7/8" x 5 5/8"
Scraps of bermuda bay, polished pink, daffodil delight, granny apple green to make the flowers
Polished Pink ink
In Bloom stamp set
Pierced Bloom dies
Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine
Simply Scored
Bone Folder
Take Your Pick Tool
Brushed Brass Butterflies
Iridescent Rhinestones
Blue adhesive backed gems
Multipurpose adhesive


On the long side score the bermuda bay card at 4 1/8" and fold and burnish to make the card base.

Die cut a selection of flowers and leaves with the dies.  Arrange the flowers on a piece of white card and when you are happy with the arrangement, adhere them in place, I have used multipurpose adhesive and dimensionals to give some dimension to the card front.

Stamp a sentiment in the bottom right hand corner of the white card in polished pink ink and then adhere this layer to the card front. If you are worried about stamping, you should do this before you arrange the flowers (I was lucky and it worked out fine).

I've used a combination of iridescent rhinestones and blue adhesive backed gems for flower centres on some of the flowers and then added 3 butterflies (I love these).

Stamp another sentiment on the remaining piece of card and add to the inside of the card.

Card done! A quick and easy card to make with a handful of scraps.
