Sending Love

*This card will be published in CARDS Magazine January 2011*

Hey there! Happy Hump Day! Today, I made another clean and simple layout card with a flair of elegance. Using some of my new goodies, I had fun creating. I'm feeling the need to get back into a zone of crafting after being so project-focused for so many weeks. It's almost like I'm free as a bird. So, I thought it was quite fitting to add "Mr. Birdy" here to this card! I don't necessarily like birds in real life, but really like them on my projects. I haven't added one to my designs in quite a while, so I'm happy about using one here. The handwriting font used in the DeNami Design sentiment stamp is just perfect for a personal card to send that touch of love. This color combo is so much fun. You'll be seeing it very soon (wink, wink)!

  1. Trim brown cardstock to about 3.25" x 3.5" and stamp the Moroccan tile pattern, then add clear embossing powder and heat set.
  2. Add vintage trim to the bottom of cardstock.
  3. Add bunched ribbon, then adhere pearls.
  4. Pop bird die cut off stamped background and pop it off an A2 rustic cream card base.
  5. Stamp sentiment on blue cardstock and pop off card base.
