I need to get together some have-on-hand birthday cards, that could be given to a male or female.
To start my collection I used a new embossing folder, Clouds. I inked up the side with the indentations for the embossing. Turning my white cardstock into a blue sky with pop-out clouds.
The birdhouse was stamped, and heat embossed in black, then colored with the markers. As a final step, I cut out just the birdhouse and its stand. The stamp actually has a frame and foliage around the birdhouse. I used a Martha Stewart punch to create the fence. The hill was made using a Kiwi Lane border template. I can never draw those things free hand.
The sentiment was stamped and heat embossed, then cut out, I inked along the edges with walnut stain distress ink. I popped up the birdhouse, and the sentiment when putting all the elements together.
Thanks for stopping by.
