Blossoms in Bloom Birthday

This is the first time I used the Blossoms in Bloom stamp set and it was super easy and fast to create this birthday card.  This stamp set has coordinating dies, Many Layered Blossoms (offered as a bundle for a 10% savings), but I didn't use them on this card.  I'll be featuring a card with those dies later this month.

The Bermuda Bay cardstock seemed a little "Plain Jane" so I used the Tasteful Textile embossing fold to jazz it up a bit.  If your card seems like something is missing, try using an embossing folder or some "bling" to add texture and dimension.

Background Pop Technique

The Background Pop Technique was a fun technique to create.  This technique adds a unique pop to the magnolia on this card.

The greeting on the inside is a true testament of the uncertain times we're all experiencing right now, but with love, the support of friends and prayers, we will get through this together!  This card is going to a very special friend that is having an extremely challenging time in her life.  I hope this card will let her know that she's not alone in the struggles she facing.
