folksy floral altenew

Welcome to a fun blog hop as we celebrate the April stamp and die release by Altenew.

Start the blog hop from the beginning here: Altenew Card Blog

For today I created a lovely tulip garden in a window card. I have been traveling last week in Amsterdam so I am still into a tulip mood

This is a birthday card for a very good friend of mine. She had her birthday while both our families were traveling together in Amsterdam. She gets a birthday card every year from me so I had to make one appropriate when we came back. You can see the inside message if you watch the video 🙂

For my card I used the Folksy Florals Stamp Set ( ALTN | SBC | SSS ). It’s a cute flower stamp set that you can use by mixing and matching stamps to create your very own flowers. I chose to go only with the tulips for my card but there are so many other designs you can use.
