I wanted to make a birthday card for a friend and I seemed to naturally gravitate to the Floral Essence stamp set. So pretty!

Design Notes for Floral Essence Card:

I think one of the first things I notice about a card are the colors. The colors I used for this card happened a little by chance. I knew I wanted to use the Rococo Rose and Pear Pizzazz. The piece of Pool Party card stock was sitting on my desk from an another project but seemed just right. Like this color combination?


I had some fun with the Detailed Trio Punch. First I rounded one of the corners, then added a little floral like touch with another punch. What a fun tool – really three punches in one!

The Floral Essence stamp set has some great sentiments but since I wanted a birthday sentiment, I used something from the Parcels & Petals stamp set.
