Sweet birthday wishes... turning flowers into ... ice cream!

Hi there!

A long post title... but if you are reading this, I guess I was successful to make you curious enough to click the link and take a look at today's card!

I am still busy with the Altenew brush art floral set, disguised as scoops of ice cream  this time :)

A closer look:

I don't own a large amount of stamps... so I am always on the lookout for ways to use what I have in an original and creative way.

Don't you think it looks a lot like the ice cream in the inspiration photo at The card concept this week?

Just the right shape and texture!

Take a look:


I masked the circle, with a die cut and stamped the 2 largest flowers 5 times.

Colors used:

  • Peony (Colorbox)
  • Fizz (Avery elle) 
  • Rosa (Stamperia)
  • Sweet Melon (Colorbox)
After stamping I added my own sentiment to create this clean and graphic card.

I hope you can use it too!

Also adding my link to the anything goes birthday challenge at Seize the birthday and Virginia's view challenge all about the focal point.

Thanks for looking!

Have a great day

This is definitely out-of-the-box thinking, Hannelie, and you pulled it off perfectly. I tried a similar idea and hated it so much I'm not even posting it.
