Here is another card which I was asked to make for a very special 80th birthday. I used the Blossom Party die which, unfortunately, was only available in the Spring Mini but let's hope it makes it's way into the new main catalogue in October. This is a lovely die and one which I probably use more than any other as you can make so many different flowers using different layer combinations. The DSP is from the brand new Twitterpated available in the Summer Mini, the leaves are cut with the Little Leaves Sizzlits die (in Old Olive & Certainly Celery) and the tiny flowers are punched with the Boho Blossoms punch. 'Mum' is from For my Family, 'Happy' is a retired stamp and the 'th and birthday' are part of a stamp from Perfect Punches inked with an Old Olive marker. I cut the 80 from the Timeless Type Junior Alphabet dies in Old Olive and some Basic Pearls were added to finish the card off. The A5 base card is Old Olive matted with Whisper White. I made a bag to put the card in, decorated with leaves, some tiny flowers and the sentiments with handles made from Old Olive satin ribbon.
