A Handmade Floral Birthday Card For My Daughter

My daughter turned 31 last month.  Can you believe it?  I can't believe I have a daughter in her thirties.  She asked for houseplants in cute pots for her birthday and this is the card I made for her to go with her gift.


This is an old MFT sketch.  Designer paper was cut on on angle to create an envelope look.  I stamped the flowers on separate card stock and cut them out with scissors.  Some of the flowers were popped up on dimensionals and some were just glued directly to the card.


The leaves and sentiment banner were cut with MFT dies.


All the stamps are super old and no longer available, but you could easily re-create this card with just about any floral stamp set and sentiment.


Have a Great Day!  Amy

    1. Thanks so much! People sometimes say we look like sisters, but not that often. Most people just think I'm a young mother/grandmother.
