A tropical birthday

Although summer is well and truly over here in the UK, I just HAD to try my new Blissful Blooms set from My Favorite Things for a birthday card. I went for a tropical colour theme but you could definitely change the colours for a completely different look.

MFT Happy Birthday flower card ECI tried out my ZIG’s again and loved how vibrant the colours turned out.

I’d never used solid die cuts before but managed to get the hang of them after cutting out all these flowers and leaves! If you’re careful, you can get a really accurate cut.

I cut out a circle for the shaker and placed the flowers round the edge to cover the shape. I wanted the yellow background paper (a Lawn Fawn Let’s Polka 6×6 sheet) to peek through. I filled the shaker with Pretty Pink Posh sparkling clear sequins, some micro beads and a pinch of chunky glitter.
