Have a Wonderful Day Birdie


This card was inspired by Dee Woodland (Hi Dee!!)! She made this card. For this week's Loonie Stamper's Challenge, we were to case another Loonie card. I decided to case one of Dee's cards because she has great layouts and ideas that are very inspirational.

I am combining this card with today's PTI Challenge - card for a friend. The sentiment can be for a birthday, just because, or friend to brighten their day!

I chose to case her layout and use of a bird and distressing technique. I thought it went well together. I changed the color scheme and instead of crackling the bird, I used fun flock (because I have no crackle)!

I hope you all have a wonderful day! Today is the last day you can 'vote' in the poll on blog ideas. Thanks for stopping by!

Have a wonderful day and make this card:
  1. Trim plum pudding, lavender moon, and pattern paper into squares that will fit on the card base and matte on each other.
  2. Distress the edges of all trimmed pieces (use your scissors if you don't have a distresser, it works great)
  3. Adhere Plum pudding cardstock to card base.
  4. Adhere pattern paper on top of lavender moon.
  5. Tie ribbon around pattern paper square.
  6. Adhere pattern paper square to card base on top of plum pudding cardstock.
  7. Stamp sentiment on white cardstock, cut out, then adhere on lavendar moon cardstock and cut out. Adhere to card base with dimensionals.
  8. Bird-Apply generous amount of Gel Medium/Tacky Glue to chipboard and apply fun flock to bird (apply 3 or more coats until you get good coverage).
  9. Adhere lavender moon cardstock to chipboard wing, then cut out and distress edges and adhere to bird.
  10. Adhere bird to card base with dimensionals and add rhinestone to the "eye."

I see you used my fav colour, the plum! The girls always bug me as it isn't their fav, but once they see this, I am sure they will change their mind! Another great card Ash!
