I used the Whisper White Narrow Note Cards
from the Occasions Catalog
for the card base. Then I used the
vine emboss folder from the Petal Pair
Embossing Folder on a
4 1/2 x 1 piece of Whisper White. I cut a
4 1/2 x 1 3/4 piece of the Petal Passion
DSP paper. I lightly sponged Pool Party
on the DSP. I adhered both of these pieces
together with the embossed piece on top of the DSP.
I cut a 5" piece of the
Bermuda Bay Shimmer Ribbon from
the Sale-A-Bration Catalog and adhered it
with glue dots over the seam of the
two paper pieces. Then I adhered this
piece to the front of the card.
Using 1 3/8" Scallop punch found in
the Occasions Catalog,
I punched out the Pool Party back panel
for the bird. I used the 1" circle punch
to create the white inner circle and glued
these two pieces together.
I stamped the bird in Basic Black, using Petal Palette
stamp set, on a piece of Whisper White. I die cut
the bird using the Petals & More Thinlits. Then I
lightly colored in the breast using the Light
Pool Party SU Blend Pen. I glued the bird
to the Pool Party & White Circle. I added
this completed piece to the front
using SU Dimensionals for a little pop.
I lightly added some Wink of Stella to the
bird's breast for a little bling. I didn't want to
add a sentiment to the front because I thought
it would make the front of the card too fussy.
I hope you enjoy this card and are inspired to
create your own cards with your favorite
stamps, inks, dies, and paper.
