One more Card for today
I absolutely love the Birds and Birdhouses collection from SVGCUTS - I had to have it, but it has taken me this long to do something with it.
My inspiration for finally using it was the stamp that I have used on this card and one that I posted earlier today. It says "a little birdie told me" and in between told and me, there is actually a bird on the stamp. I simply masked the bird off before inking my stamp and then filled in the space with a little cutout bird on a foam dot. Oh, and did I mention - I found this cute stamp in the DOLLAR BIN at Michael's - its part of the brand new spring stuff!
This card features a scrap of basic grey paper that was in my bin, Core'dinations cardstock, bazzill cardstock, some pigment ink and I used the cuttlebug divine swirls embossing folder. The birdhouse and bird cut are from the aforementioned Birds and Birdhouses collection. My birdhouse is 3 layers - a blackout of the image as the underneath layer, the embossed front elevated on foam dots and then a 3rd layer that I used to cut the roof lines in a contrasting color - also elevated on foam dots.
That's it for me tonight - headed to bed. See everyone tomorrow!
