Best Birds

Here is a very simple card:

The base is Crumb Cake with sponging of the same color of ink around the edges. The mat is Sky Blue, using the Hardwood background stamp and Soft Suede ink. Using the same ink, sponge around the edges with more on the corners.

Stamp the bird, stem an flowers on Whisper White. Sponge on your colors. The flowers actually have a small circle of watercolor, using so saffron, then the image stamped on top with the same ink. Cut everything out with the framelits. SAVE 10% when you purchase the stamp set and framelits together as a bundle! Position everything on the mat. The branch is glued directly to the mat. The bird and flowers are shaped (turn upside down on a piece of foam and using the larger end of the scoring tool, work circles around the edges. This will cause them to curl a bit.) Add them with glue dots.

Tie a bow with the linen thread and attach with a glue dot. Curl the glue dot to fit the back of the bow.

Here is the inside:

The panel is Sky Blue with Crumb Cake sponging around the edges. The bird is cut out with one of the framelits and glued into place.

And the envelope:

I also sponged around the envelope before stamping the bird, all in Soft Suede.

Quick and simple, but I think the recipient will like it. What do you think?

Have a great day and thanks so much for stopping by.
