I created this card using products from the SU 2018 Occasions Catalog and the SU 2017-18 Annual Catalog. Many of the products I used are now available in the SU 2018-19 Annual Catalog. See the Supply List below.
For the front of the card there are many pieces to
create this beautiful scene. The card base is made
using SU Whisper White Thick. The Whisper
White Embossed piece is 5 1/2 x 1 3/4 and embossed
using the Petal Pair Embossing Folder. The blue
panel for this card was made using SU Soft Sky cardstock
which is now retired. I would use SU Balmy Blue instead.
The panel is embossed using SU Falling Softly Embossing
Adhere the white embossed panel on top of the blue
panel, there will be a small overlap. The two panels
together should measure 5 1/2 x 4 1/4. Take the 7" piece
of white organza ribbon (retired), you can substitute
SU Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon or Lace Trim, adhere it
to the white and blue embossed front panel using
mini glue dots or tape. Adhere the panel to the front of the card.
Using SU Whisper White cardstock stamp 3 birds from the
Petal Palette stamp set in Memento Black. Using SU Light
Cherry Cobbler Blends and the SU Lift Off Blend, color
the breast of the 3 birds. Die cut them using SU
Petals and More Thinlits Dies.
The branches and flowers are die cut using SU Seasonal
Layers Thinlits Dies. The branches are done in
SU Soft Suede cardstock. The flowers are done using
SU Shimmery White cardstock and highlighted using
SU Powder Pink and a sponge dauber. Adhere the
branches first, add the flowers, and then, using mini
dimensionals adhere the 2 birds to the branches. The
third bird will be placed on the inside of the card,
see photo below.
The sentiment is also done on SU Shimmery White
cardstock about 2 1/2 x 3/4, use the
sentiment of your choice.
This photo shows the inside of the card. Adhere
the bird using Tombow glue. You can make a
fourth bird for the envelope.
I didn't use any sentiment, leaving it up
to the participants choice. Many people don't like
to use sentiments on the inside of the card.
They prefer to write their own
note to the person receiving the card.
