Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I first stamped the Justrite Stitched Circles Background onto Coconut White Card using Stonewashed Adirondack Dye Ink. I made sure the ink was dry and then ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Small Dots Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design and inked around the edges with Stonewashed Ink.

I cut a Spellbinders Luscious Labels One and inked through the die with Stonewashed Ink. I stamped the birdhouse from the Justrite Home Tweet Home Clear Stamp Set onto some patterned Foundations Paper using Jet Black Archival. I cut it out using scissors and popped it on top of the Luscious Labels One die cut.

I stamped the litttle bird from the same stamp set onto Custard Card and cut it out removing the beak and legs. I glued it to the birdhouse as shown and drew the beak and legs back in using a black fineliner pen.

I stamped the bow from the same stamp set, again onto Custard Card using Jet Black Archival.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set onto Coconut White Card using Jet Black Archival. I cut it out using a Spellbinders Decorative Labels 8 die and inked through the die with Stonewashed Ink.

I assembled the card as shown adding a White Mini Pearl Swirl, some White 5mm White Pearls in the corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Vanilla PVA around the edges.

Kim Robertson has shows on Create & Craft today at 10am and 4pm. She has some great new products so please try to tune in.

Thanks for stopping by.
