Card-io "Baskets and Bows" Floral Birthday Card

I seem to be chasing my tail so much that I decided to make a list of things that I needed to do and just work my way through them.  The list consists of cards to be made, presents to be wrapped, posting Christmas cards and renewing stuff too.   This seems to have worked as I have managed to put a line through a few of the tasks.

This is a card I have made for a friend that likes to garden, which was ideal as I wanted to try out a Card-io clear stamp set I had recently purchased, called "Baskets and Bows".

I've used four different Card-io stamp sets for this card:  Basket and Bows, Wild Flowers, Tiny Trailers and Sweet Hearts.  I've stamped in an assortment of inks, includine Versafine Clair, Memento and Distress Oxide Inks.  I've used touches of gelly roll pens and coloured pencils too.

The sentiment is one from a Simon Says Stamp set called "Tiny Words - Birthday" which I absolutely adore.  I'm not one for huge, smack you in the face verse and sentiments so this stamp set is ideal for me.


  1. A fabulous birthday card,the colours of the foliage and flowers is beautiful

  2. This is beautiful and the trough shaped basket is just perfect for filling with this wonderful mix of flowers and foliage, and love the sweet butterfly and small and delicate sentiment which looks great Sam. x
