I was inspired to make this card when I saw the cute little birds on a piece of
paper I purchased. (http://www.3bugsinarug.com/ April Showers collection) I wanted to make a litte birdie for my card that closely resembled the ones in my paper. I used my ornament punch (Stampin Up), a 1 1/4 inch circle, some 7mm wiggle eyes, and a few strips of cardstock. I added my birdie to a card base that has a bit of an unusual fold and embellished with some pretty ribbon. Very simple!
This super easy purse invitation was one of the make and take projects that we gave to each person who registered for Scrap-fest. This one is my sample (we acutally used a different paper) so I was experimenting with ribbon and embellishment choices. I used my I-top to create the matching brad on flower. (not exactly centered but then life's not perfect!)
Sorry I haven't posted much lately. I have been busy with Scrap-Fest (A one day scrapbooking event with lots of classes and shopping that is a fundraiser for Erickson All Sports Facility) In the next few posts I will show some of the projects I taught.
This card was made with vellum cardstock. I colored the inside of the vellum glass with rose red and yellow ink to make the lemondade part. Chunky glitter on the rim is supposed to look like sugar. I added a lemon and a hot pink straw (not pictured) to complete the card. I think it's pretty cute!
