In bits and sprinkles this weekend, I put together a card for my very dear friend, Shelly, who was involved in a car accident last week. I have been waiting to use this cute little stamp with a birdie on it. It has a sentiment that says ""Merci" but I just put tape over that part when I stamped it in white ink and then pulled off the tape before I stamped the paper. I also just Love the Baja Breeze color paper from Stampin' Up - I bought both the paper and the ink! My living room is also that same color with cream and dark brown - somehow the greyish aqua is a color I always feel is calming and serene (the exact opposite of my life! LOL!!)
|I stamped the image in white, added clear embossing powder and heat set it. Then I used my Copic Markers to color in the birdie and flower. Here you can see the paper bag colored Bazzill paper I crimped using a roller you can buy at Michael's.|
|The ribbon is from Stampin' Up and is 1 1/4" wide which I thought was way to wide, but it ties in a bow beautifully - they make great grosgrain ribbon!|
|Here's a side view. I popped up the sentiment onto the oval circle which I cut out with George and Basic Shapes on my Cricut. The scalloped oval is from Marvy Uchida.|
|This is the inside of the card. I added the birdie paper for decoration and also to get a continuous length of paper 14' long to fold in half. The sentiment stamp is from My Pink Stamper!|
|I hope she likes it!|
Take care and enjoy your week!
