Garden Goodness Birthday Blooms

Garden Goodness Birthday Blooms

Good morning!

I'm sharing a new project today featuring one of my favourite sets in the Print Shop series from The Greetery.

The Print Shop Garden Goodness set just shouts spring and summer to me, and I love using it for bright backgrounds.

My project today just uses the stamp and stencil combo pack, but there are also coordinating dies for layering certain elements as well as cutting full elements of the background.

What I love about the Print Shop series and other stamp and stencil layering sets from The Greetery is that there's so much scope for combining different colours without having to mask off different areas.

These sets also come with a step-by-step guide with colour suggestions for each layer (there are 6 stencil layers in this case).

That might sound like a lot of steps, but it actually makes for quick work and that background comes together in no time.

The stamped details are also quick to add and really bring those layers to life.

I never really want to cover up too much of this lovely background, so for this card I used sentiments from the ever-popular Opposites Attract stamp set and the coordinating dies for the bold and scripty sentiments in the stamp set.

If you have a foiling system, there is also a hot foil set for the bold Opposites Attract sentiments.

(Some of the Opposites Attract items are currently out of stock, but you can use the out of stock system to be notified by email when they come back in.)

A 50th birthday card definitely calls for fancy numbers and a bit of bling.
So, of course, I reached for my staple number dies, the Bold Numbers from The Greetery, and cut them from Lawn Fawn Metallic Gold cardstock.

I cut the numbers a few extra times from white cardstock to layer the die cuts up for extra dimension, and then adhered all the die-cut elements to the front of my card.

As a finishing touch, I added dots of clear Nuvo drops to the berries.

And there we have it, card done!

Until next time, happy crafting!
