Bloom and Grow Pinewood Planks Birthday Card

by Joanne James30. August 2019 09:00

Woohoo, it's Friday! I have another 'Bloom and Grow' card for you today, this time using both the sketch and inspiration photo over at Fusion:


Today's card is a little more 'stepped up' than my earlier clean and simple version (you can see that card here if you missed it) with a few more tools involved - take a look:

On today's card my sentiment is in the same place, however I have added a split top layer of Costal Cabana cardstock that I first embossed with the Pinewood Planks embossing folder. I coloured my row of five flowers with my Stampin' Blends and cut them out using the co-ordinating Budding Blooms Dies before popping up with dimensionals across the edge of the mat layer. This card just shows how a few well chosen additional tools and accessories can create a completely different card with the same stamp set.

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:


You can see all of my 'How To' summaries on my 'How To - Tips and Techniques' Pinterest board in case you've missed any. I am really loving this stamp set at the moment; I made the cards for my in-colour club with it too. It makes such great feminine birthday cards and is really easy to work with.

Enjoy your day and I'll be back tomorrow with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!

I liked the first card but this one - wow - even more beautiful. I love the colours and the use of the Pinewood Planks folder is just perfect.

Nearly missed this stunning card Joanne! I really love the embossing on the Coastal Cabana card stock and the flowers are gorgeous - and beautifully coloured. Nicely repeated on the envelope too Smile
