Birds & Branches Beauty

This card was what I call an “unintentional” card! I really was just playing with the Birds & More dies to see what they look like. I then did the next thing I do in the design process and choose colors. I saw a Crumb Cake piece that was already run through with the Subtle 3-D folder and then a Soft Suede piece. I will be honest, this set was hard (at first) to come up with a design. I literally placed all the pieces onto my craft space, and they landed like this! Then, the wheels just started turning!!!

I grabbed the stamp set and some Soft Suede ink and started stamping the birds. It took a few tries to get the right balance of color. I stamped the detailed image with the Soft Suede ink and then stamped off Crumb Cake ink for the body fill stamp. (stamping in this order was easier to line up the 2 step stamping) I cut them out with the dies, and then started stamping the background so it fit inside the detailed circle.

I then stamped off Rococo Rose flowers and cut them out. I did distress the edges of the flowers with a sponge and Rococo Rose ink. Next, I grabbed some Vellum Card Stock and cut out 2 of the vine borders. I chose where to ink the feet of the birds and then adhered them with dimensionals. I finished off the card with gold twin from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo pack, some pearls, and the sentiment.

Stay tuned for more creations from my open house that kicked off the New 2020-21 Annual Catalog! It was so nice to see my customers again! I had them schedule their time so I had no more than 2 at a time. I was able to visit and not feel rushed too! Plus, I was able to clean the Make n Take items between guests! It was a success and I think I will keep the scheduled times going forward!

So I have to share this silly picture of one of my two cats, Jasper! I was prepping to take pictures of cards with my photo box. And he had other plans!
