3D Hydrangea Card

My favorite flower is the hydrangea. The soft colors and lush blossoms just take my breath away. Ours are blooming right now- almost a month ahead of schedule- but I am always happy to see them whenever they decide to make their appearance.

Here's a card I made using the Bigz Borders & Hydrangeas die, part of the new Sweet Treats collection...


...and here's a quick video showing how I made it:






Hope you all are having a great weekend and spending some time enjoying nature!

Eileen

    1. Thanks Nancy- I am so glad they came back- last year my husband went a little crazy with the clippers and I wasn't sure if it would make it...

  12. This is a lovely card. I think I could make it using the Build a Lilac die to make the blossoms, or am I mistaken? Beautiful card, love hydrangeas.
