Sympathy: Flourishing Floral


The Flourishing Phrases is becoming one of my favorite sets for sympathy cards.  I used the Flourish thinlet for this card.  I die cut the green, cutting off the flowers.  Then I die cut the pink flowers and glued them in place.  I love the look of the brick wall in the background.

Birthday Shadow Box with Balloon Adventures



I really liked this design when I saw it on Pinterest, but the die score lines cut into the card's score line.  So the card's score line were a bit too deep.  But other than that, I really like the shadow box effect.  Simple on the outside and fun on the inside.

Island Indigo
Soft Sky
White
Basic Black

Birthday background stamp (very old SU!)
