This stunning z-fold birthday card features one of the most popular suites of the new January-June 2020 Mini Catalogue - the Peaceful Poppies Suite. Not only does it star on the front cover, but you can also find numerous project ideas on pages 24-27 of the Mini Catalogue. I used the Painted Poppies stamp set and coordinating Painted Labels Dies to compliment the gorgeous Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper to create this birthday card...

You may have noticed that the bow on the front of this card is not-quite-Whisper White. I have taken the Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon and subtly coloured it by stamping the splatter stamp all over the ribbon with Soft Sea Foam ink. What I love about this technique is that you can take a soft hand to colouring the ribbon, like this one, or make a bold statement by colouring it with a bright stamp pad or markers. One ribbon, many colour options!

I saw this fabulous z-fold card design by Dawn Griffith quite a while ago and finally had an excuse to give it a go, altering the dimensions to suit the size of our A4 cardstock. What looks like a straight-forward card, opens, and opens again! Inside is a place to write a special message and a perfectly sized pocket for a gift card voucher. Surprise!
I loved creating this gift card holder and have plans to re-create it again. It's the perfect card design to send to those who are hard to buy for. Now to just decide what gift card to purchase!
