I can’t believe we are already thinking about birthdays in the New Year, and the start of our Birthday Blossoms feature.
Each birth month has flowers that are associated with it, the birth flowers for January are snowdrops and carnations. I chose snowdrops for my cards as the flower shape is much more distinctive than carnations and as they only bloom from January to March they seem the most fitting for January birthdays.
The first of the three cards uses just the snowdrop from this Robin and Snowdrop clear stamp.
I have to be honest and say my daughter Garcia made the quilled snowdrop, she is the quilling expert, I just made the card for it. She used green and white 3mm quilling paper and a variety of quilling tools to create the different elements. I layered dark green card onto a white 12.5cm square card blank and matted that with blue card that I had inked with white ink to give an appearance of sky and add some texture. I die cut the curved shape from white card and added some lines of diamond glitter glue for a snow effect. The silver happy birthday greeting is a peel off.
Three different cards but all featuring snowdrops, perfect for anyone with a January birthday.
Thanks for looking in, I hope you like them, let me know what you think.
