Quick and Simple Card - Free as a Bird

I was in the process of making a card on Friday for my upcoming class and couldn't decided whether I wanted to mount the card front onto a Whisper White base or Early Espresso. So I posted a poll on Facebook for help and after more then 30 responses, I was still none the wise. The vote was split. So I did the only think that I could do, I made two.

I love these little birds from the Bird Ballad designer Series paper. Unfortunately we don't have a die for them, so fussy cutting is the way to go. Unless you have an electric cutter like me and then it's literally a piece of cake.


I also did a very quick FB live video, showing a tutorial and how I made these fun cards. I have since uploaded it to YouTube for you guys to watch it too.

Card Measurements

Base: 11 1/2" x 4"
Mossy Meadow Panel: 3 1/8" x 4 7/8"
Whisper White Front: 3" x 4 3/4"

Sometimes it's all about the dies - Foliage Framelits

Have you ever brought just the stamp sets or just the framelits? Have you wondered if people even do that? Well I didn't for this set, but I really could have done, because the dies are absolutely amazing on their own.

Don't get me wrong, I love the stamp set too, but the different leaves, branches and sprigs in the Foliage Framelits are to die for and this card really celebrates them all.

Oh and just quietly, I'm head over heels for this sentiment banner stamp and die. It's a gorgeous shape and size if you ask me.

The colour combination was completely inspired by the colours in the Share Wat You Love designer series paper. I probable would never have put the four colour together, but they absolutely work.

My girls really did love making this card in class and I think out of the three designs we did, this was agreed to be everyone's favourite. Plus, how could I have had this cute Petal Pairs embossing folder for almost a year and only just used it!?!?!? And the other one in the set is just as stunning. That will be finding itself on a card very soon too!

Happy Crafting,

Watercolours in Cornwall - By the Bay Sale-a-Bration

I'm sure I'm not the only one who thinks the By the Bay stamp set reminds them of the houses and coastlines on the Cornish coast in the England. It brings to mind, long sunny days, eating strawberries and ice cream. I spent lots of time in Cornwall and really hope to take the children there when we go back to visit again soon.

The pretty little house in this set, just called to me to water colour it and I wanted to use this card for a man or a women so I left the colours pretty neutral for that reason.


I wanted to keep this card as simple as possible and I thought the little sentiment was just perfect and all I needed to add to finish it off.

So many of the Sale-a-Bration goodies are selling out so don't hesitate, place an order and grab your favorites today!

Happy Crafting,
Chlo
