Glorious flowers birthday card idea is to play around with flowers featured on patterned paper. I believe you can regularly find patterned paper filled with pretty flowers. It’s a matter of finding some which allows you to cut out different types of flowers in various sizes to embellish your card creation.
I’ve chosen a piece of Basic Grey “Romani – Romany” patterned paper which has beautiful flower prints on it! Not only did I cut out flowers, but I managed to trim out some leaves to decorate the card too.
Look through your patterned papers and see if you can find some glorious flower designs to use on your next card creation! Have fun!
