When I make cards, I usually just kind of throw all my supplies out there for the theme and then sort through until an idea comes to me. Not a perfect solution, but it works for me.
My daughter's 1st birthday is coming up in early April, and we're going with a "blooming flower garden" theme. So I got out floral stamps, punches, and got busy.
(I had already printed out the words I wanted for the inside.)
Here's the inside - a pop-up garden swirl.
My Cuttlebug dies haven't gotten a good thorough work-out since I got them at Christmas. Time to put them to use! I got busy and cut and glued and cut and glued.
And here is my garden. I am going to put her sweet face in the middle of the circle flower. Then off the invites go!
