Bloomin' Beautiful Hinge Card


I used the Bloomin' Beautiful set along with Bella Birds paper and Pink Pirouette cardstock. White organza ribbon and jumbo brads in white as embellishments. Inside sentiment from Happy Harmony, I stamped the blossom definition repeatedly in pink for a background, stamped the poppy and colored it with markers. The edges wer made with the Martha Stewart border punch. I ran the Pirouette Pink through the Big Shot using the Friends wording texture plate and the Bella Birds paper through using the polka dots plate. Sponged around all edges with Pretty In Pink.
There is a great tutorial on Splitcoast for making this hinge card. It is really very easy and nothing to be afraid of. After making your first one, I think you'll be hooked!
