With time so limited lately, I tend to go for the fast and easy card with a little "punch." Can you tell I am hooked on using the designer papers for these fast cards? This paper is from the Flowers for You pack. This card is one that I made for a swap and also had as a make and take at a recent workshop. I think the set "A Little Birdie Told Me" is so cute.
It may be hard to tell from the picture, but the birdie is not colored in. He was first stamped onto the white layer. Then the birdie's body was stamped in tempting turquoise ink on designer paper which had a very subtle pattern to it (the reverse side of the paper used at the bottom of the card). The birdie was cut out and layered onto the birdie stamped on the white giving him a little more dimension and interest.
The double-stitched Wild Wasabi ribbon was used on this card as well as the small and large oval punches.
