Birthday Card Design With Detailed Dogwood

Explore the laid-back vintage vibes of my latest birthday card design

I finally decided to break out the Detailed Dogwood stamp set.  Oh, boy, it's a game-changer for that effortlessly cool shabby chic look.  And the best part?  You can snag this fantastic set for free with just a $100 order — how cool is that?

Mixing and matching stamps from the Notes of Nature set was a creative joy, resulting in a beautiful blend that adds a unique touch.  For the greeting I opted for the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Garden Meadow set.  Using the rough-edged die from the Gorgeously Made Dies collection to cut it out helped to keep the feel of old and worn.

Birthday Card Design -
Fussy Cutting Can Be Worth It!

Sure, there was some fussy cutting involved for the flowers, but it turned out to be a breeze and totally worth the effort.  And the extra foliage was cut out using Notes of Nature Dies, so that was easy.  I did use a sponge dauber to ink up a lot of the elements and all around the torn cardstock to tie everything together.

Finally, I added just a sprinkle of Iridescent Foil Gems for that perfect touch of sparkle — it's the little things that make it pop!

This birthday card design isn't the only one rocking that shabby chic feel.  Check out this birthday card idea for more inspiration.
