Mellow Bird .. and a special offer

Well its another very (very) chilly day here in Sydney.  I really do not like winter although spending the day in bed is rather nice but it doesnt get things done.

It was nice to receive a phone call this morning from the lovely Lisa to advise me that it actually just got to 10C!!  She is such a sweetie and so thoughtful!

Today’s card is one that I cased however now I cant find where it was that I cased it from – I’ve changed computers so if you do recognise this as your design please let me know so I can give credit where it is due.

How nice is this card?

Recipe:
Stamps: En Francais, Baroque Motifs
Paper:
Mellow Moss, Very Vanilla, Basic Gray
Inks:
Sahara Sand, Always Artichoke
Accessories:
Extra Large 2 step bird punch, Polka Dot Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, sponge daubers, Mellow Moss Taffeta Ribbon, Stampin Dimensionals.

Now when I made this card I wanted the dots from the  Textured Impressions Folder to stand out so I just used my sponge dauber with the sahara sand and gently rubbed over the top just to make them ‘pop’ a little – it doesnt need much just a light touch.

Although it looks involved it is surprisingly simple. Its been a very popular card in my Stamp A Stack classes too.  Its also another good card to show that everyone really needs to have that Extra Large 2 step bird punch in their supply.

  1. What good timing you have in this post Leonie – I am trying to figure out how to finish 2 swap cards that I’m overdue in mailing out….there is embossing on the white part of the card and I wanted to make the embossing “pop” and after reading your post, now I know how! I think it must be my long-distance telepathy at work….! Sending you some really warm weather…it’s been 111 degrees daily here – really taxing the a/c – send me just a dusting of snow if you have it to cool off lol! Mary L

  2. Good Luck Leonie. I hope you manage to reach your goal.

  8. Nice card Leonie, the bird and branch go well with the baroque motifs stamp in the background, they look like they were made for each other.
