White Peonies

March is a big birthday month. I have 4 cards that I need to make for family/friends. Since I need to make a card for both my sister and sister-in-law, I decided I would use the new Peony stamp set.  Inspired by so many white peonies on Pinterest, I used Fresh Snow on Royal Velvet to make this card. 

     Making a background with this stamp is so easy.  Since there is no die to accompany the stamp set, I fussy cut the frame. (WAPITA)
     PTI dies have definitely spoiled me. I remember the days when I fussy cut everything. I used Sweet Blush satin ribbon to match the card base. Isn't the design on that button delightful?
  So if you are wondering who got this card, check in tomorrow as I show case the other birthday card I made using this same set. Thanks for stopping by.

Those white peonies on the dark cardstock are so striking and beautiful. And, your fussy cutting is incredible. You must be so patient.

I, too, use to fussy cut a lot, but have been spoiled since discovering PTI and their matching dies!

You have fussy cut your butt off and quite fabulously so I must add. That frame really does need a die.

I love the colors too. the pink in contrast to that inky cardstock is fabulous! Lovely card.
