Today’s card is one I made for my monthly Stamp Club. It features the Bloom & Grow Bundle (Bloom & Grow stamp set and Budding Blooms Dies.) Every time I see the name of this bundle, I think of the song Edelweiss from The Sound of Music. There’s a lyric that goes “Blossom of snow may you bloom and grow, Bloom and grow forever.” You can hear the song at the bottom of this post.


Here’s what I made:

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my paper trimmer:

  • Granny Apple Green card stock (CS) cut to 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, then scored in half at 4-1/4″
  • Basic Black CS layer cut to 5-1/4″ x 4″
  • Whisper White CS layer cut to 5-1/8″ x 3-7/8″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 5-1/4″ c 4″ for the inside of the card base

Stamped with the Bloom & Grow stamp set:

  • sentiment in Gorgeous Grape ink onto the center of the Whisper White CS layer
  • flowers in black Memento ink on the top right and bottom left corners of the Whisper White CS layer

Cut using the Budding Blooms Dies:

  • tiny flowers from scraps of Purple Posy, Highland Heather, and Gorgeous Grape CS

Colored using Stampin’ Blends:

  • flowers in Highland Heather
  • leaves in Garden Green

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • Basic Black CS layer glued onto the front of the card base
  • tiny die cut flowers glued onto the Whisper White CS layer
  • Whisper White CS layer glued onto the Basic Black CS layer
  • Whisper White CS glued onto the inside of the card base

Here’s the song Edelweiss:

Edelweiss Edelweiss
Every morning you greet me
Small and white
Clean and bright
You look happy to meet me
Blossom of snow may you bloom and grow
Bloom and grow forever
Edelweiss Edelweiss
Bless my homeland forever
