Peeking through the snow


This card was inspired by a beautiful single flower peeking through the snow this week…

simply soft peep flower


After embossing the whisper white card, I used a circle punch to create a peep hole for the flower to peek through and the leaves are from the bird builder punch.

By changing the sentiment this card could be used for Mother’s Day, Get Well, Thank you or Thinking of you card.

Here’s what I used:

Stamps: simply soft & happiest birthday wishes 

Card/Paper:  wild wasabi, melon mambo and whisper white

Ink: melon mambo & basic grey 

Punches: circle & bird builder

Accessories: gumball green stitched satin ribbon, embossing folder
