Timeless Tulips Wishing You Happy Birthday

Timeless Tulips Wishing You Happy Birthday

When tulips start showing up through the dirt and/or the snow, we know that spring will soon be arriving!  And I was thinking of spring when I decided to make the birthday card using the Timeless Tulips stamp set.  These are Distinktive Stamps so, when used, the images look like they’re shaded – an easy way to get shaded flowers!   And photopolymer stamps make it easy to place the images exactly where you want them.

SAB 2020 – Happy Birthday to You with Birthday Dies

SAB 2020 – Happy Birthday to You with Birthday Dies

This is a sample used for a recent Monthly Card Club class.  You’ll notice that it doesn’t have a sentiment because I think it could be for a birthday, an anniversary, a wedding, an engagement or maybe thinking of you!  The inside is blank so you can write the appropriate greeting when you decide it’s occasion. The title of this post uses the name of the stamp set.
