The birthday flower for the month of May is Lily of the Valley, a delicate white flower with broad leaves and a very distinctive scent. Despite it’s popularity in gardens and flower arrangements they are not very common in crafting, however, I did find a lovely stamp and die set which I have used for two of the cards.
We are giving away one of these stamp and die sets this week, to be in with a chance to win all you have to do is comment on this post telling me which of the three cards you like best and why. Good Luck!
I used traditional colors for this first card, leaving the flowers white. Stamping onto white card means you don’t have to try and color the flowers just add a little shading.
I went for a tent fold base which is cut from white card measuring 14.5cm x 10.5cm, layered with green card and green paper from a marble effect paper pad. I die cut a tag shape from white card and stamped the flower in black ink then colored the leaves, stems, ground and the tiny little ladybird. I die cut a bigger tag shape from green card and then hand trimmed it to make a smaller border around the white tag.
The greeting is stamped in white on to the same green card and both the tag and the greeting are attached with foam pads to give a bit of dimension. Some white adhesive pearl swirls and an organza bow finish it off.
