Hello, my friends!
I hope everybody is well! This sweet little bird came to say Hello. Today’s card was created with one of my favorite suites in the new catalog The Bird Ballad Suite. This suite makes it simple to create elegant beautiful cards and gifts’ a matter of no time. Today’s card is a gatefold card that uses the new beautiful Bird Ballard Designer Series Paper. I think one of my other favorite things about this suite is that you get to color the images, I find coloring such a relaxing technique and in today’s stressful world relaxation is a key for a balanced life.
The card base is Petal Pink measuring 5 1/2″x 8 1/2″ score at 2 1/8″ on each side, this creates your gatefold.
Bird Ballard Designer Series Paper front measures 2″ x 5 3/8″, the inside piece measures 3 1/4″x 5″ The largest Circle of the Stitch Shape Dies is in Smokey Slate the next smallest one is cut A piece of Whisper White card stock.
Using scrap pieces of Whisper White stamp your Flower and Bird image using Memento ink, colored the images using Stampin Blends Calypso Coral and Pineapple Punch. Using your paper snips cut out the Bird and Two flowers.
On your die cut Whisper White circle I stamped using Granny Apple Green ink the Leaf images randomly across the circle, then using Memento ink and I stamped the HELLO sentiment.
Take your Designer Series Paper cut at 2 1/2″ x 5 3/8″ and adhere to the front of the card then attach your 3 1/4″ x 5″ Designer Series Paper to the inside of the card.
I stamped in additional Sentiment and a few Flowers onto the Designer Series Paper on the inside of the card. Glue down your Whisper White Circle onto your Smoky Slate Circle, I scrunched the Flowers and attached a mini dimensional then adhered it to the circles on the left-hand side. Now attach dimensionals to the back of the Bird attach to your Whisper White circle with the sentiment, attach a small bow using Braided Linen Trim to the right-hand side of the circle. Glue your circles to the left-hand panel of the front of your card.
A simple quick and easy card!
