Floral Inspired Birthday Card


bgh march inspired birthday

This card was inspired by the cover of the March 2014 (current) issue of Better Homes and Gardens.

I stamped the flowers with VersaMark, embossed with clear embossing powder, then die cut them.

Here is the magazine cover:

  1. As soon as I saw the inspiration I was looking forward to this card. I really like it and would love for you to put one aside for me.

    • Done! There was just something about that BGH cover…I have been contemplating for several years dropping my subscription (the magazine has gotten so thin, and every other page is an ad), but then they offer a deal so it is almost free. But the covers offer so much inspiration!

  2. You’re so freakin’ talented! I love where you find your inspirations and how you translate them to your cards.
