Hop on over to the AAA Birthday blog and see what the Design Team have created and a special welcome to Izzy Scrap as this months guest designer…she has created a STUNNING card this month to inspire you.

  • Stamp post box image onto alcohol marker friendly cardstock. Colour with alcohol markers.
  • Stamp “Post” word on coloured postbox and the “flag” on a spare piece of cardstock with Versamark ink and sprinkle red embossing powder and tap off excess. Set with heatgun.
  • Fussy cut postbox (this comes in two pieces and I adhered them together with foam tape to add some dimension) and cut around embossed flag. Adhere flag to post box with liquid glue.


  • Stamp envelope outline twice onto coloured and white vellum with Staz-on black ink.
  • Fussy cut and fold to create envelope (there is a matching die set but I didn’t purchase it). It did take a few extra goes to get my envelopes to a stage where I was happy with them. I closed one envelope completely and left the other open to slip the happy birthday note into.
  • Add crystal heart to closed envelope.


  • Stamp Happy Birthday onto coloured vellum with Versamark ink, sprinkle with fine detail embossing powder and tap excess off. Set with Heat Gun.
  • Adhere inside envelope with small piece of double sided tape on back of note.


  • Cut a piece of white vellum down about 1/4″ smaller than card base.
  • Stamp flower bouquet three times onto vellum with Momento Tuxedo Black ink. I laid the finished elements onto vellum so I knew where to stamp the flowers.
  • Turn vellum over and colour bouquet with alcohol inks on the back of the vellum. As the vellum mutes the colours a bit you can go darker with your chosen colours.
  • Adhere small crystals to centres of daisies. I used red to pick up on the red on the postbox.


  • Adhere postbox and envelopes to vellum background.
  • Adhere vellum to card base using double sided tape behind the elements only so it doesn’t show.

I hope you’ve been inspired to join us in this months challenge.

Thanks for stopping by and have a good day.
