Fragrant hyacinths and butterfly accents at the palace gateway



Today’s card was inspired by the hyacinth bulbs that I received as a Mothers’ day gift two years ago, that are getting ready to show their blooms again.

This card features the Heartfelt Creations palace gateway as the backdrop for the flowers. This die set creates beautiful shaped cards (though it can be used on square cards as well) - that immediately create an “aha” moment for the recipient. The die set can be used in different ways. For this card, I omitted the central die, so that I would have space for a stamped or die-cut sentiment.
The main flower was created with the fragrant hyacinth stamp-and die set. For fullness, I added cosmos-like stems from the Butterfly accents set that is part of the latest Floral butterfly collection. The card just NEEDED a butterfly, so I created one from vellum, using the Small butterflies stamp-and-die set.
