SBTD April Blog Hop Flowers

Welcome to the Stampers By The Dozen (SBTD) April Blog Hop as we showcase projects featuring flowers. You will be visiting with Stampin' Up1 Demonstrators from around the world as we share our ideas to help inspire you to create your own beautiful projects. Flowers are so versatile and can be used all year round, for a variety of occasions. 
 Today's card design features products from the Peaceful Poppies Suite in the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog. I paired the Peaceful Moments Bundle (item #153824) with the Painted Labels Dies (item #151605) to create this soft and pretty birthday card. 
 To create this card design, I used Pool Party cardstock for the card base and added a layer of Pool Party cardstock that I embossed with the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder (item #149634) to add subtle texture. I die cut the large label from Whisper White cardstock using the Painted Labels Dies and attached it to the card front with Snail adhesive. I die cut the circle swirl from Bermuda Bay cardstock and attached it to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals so that it overlaps the Whisper White label. 
To create the sentiment, I die cut a circle from Whisper White cardstock using one of the circle dies from the Stitched Shapes Dies (item #145372) from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog. I heat embossed the sentiment image from the Peaceful Moments stamp set (item #151595) using Silver Embossing Powder. I attached the embossed circle to the center of the Bermuda Bay Swirl using Snail Adhesive. 
 Using the Poppy Moments Dies (item #151594), I die cut two of the smaller base flowers from Blushing Bride cardstock and die cut two of the coordinating detailed outlines from Rococo Rose cardstock. I attached the detailed outlines to the bases using Snail Adhesive. Using Basic Black cardstock, I die cut two of the small centers out and attached them to the center of each flower. I die cut four of the small leaves from Soft Sea Foam cardstock and added two of them to each of the flowers using Snail Adhesive. I attached the flowers to the card front on the top and bottom side of the Bermuda Bay swirl using Stampin' Dimensionals. To finish off the card design, I added Basic Rhinestones to the card front for a touch of bling and colored the black centers and the outlines of the flowers with Clear Wink of Stella for a touch of shimmer.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today. I hope that my card design inspires you to try creating your own projects using flowers. There are so many wonderful possibilities to try.
