Happy Wednesday friends! Amy here sharing a card that features the new stamp set, A Bird's Life and a set from last month's release, Friends & Family. I thought these two paired very nicely together to create a flower background, setting the stage for the birdhouses.
To create the front panel, I trimmed smooth white cardstock to 5"x 3.75". Using a Misti Tool, I placed the birdhouses and the sentiment where I wanted them to go and stamped it using black ink. To create a flower background, I stamped a variety of the bold flowers and leaves with pastel dye inks. I stamped them around the birdhouses, spacing them as evenly as I could. I did this using the stamps in the order of largest to smallest. This allows the smaller stamps to fill in the open areas.
I wanted this card to have some dimension so I stamped the birdhouses and the cute little birds on the smooth white cardstock and colored them with Copic markers. I also stamped the bows with dye ink and die-cut all of them using the coordinating A Bird's Life dies. Then, I went back to the front panel and drew a line with a green Gelly Pen from the top of the card to the roof of the birdhouses. To finish my card, I added foam adhesives behind all the images and adhered them to the front. Isn't this card tweet? I hope you like it!
Thank you so much for stopping by today, and I hope you have an awesome day! See you next Wednesday.
