I cannot believe that I haven't posted in over a month. It was a long and busy month. I am back today to share a card that I made last night for my friend Gayle. Today is Gayle's birthday.
The inspiration for her card came from a combination of cards on Pinterest and some Hero Arts bird stamps that are displayed in front of me. I didn't use those stamps, but instead pulled out some of my circle and heart punches and played with them. I also pulled some party hats out of my birthday embellishments clear container and got to work.
I started out by arranging the circles and hats onto a piece of 4" x 5.25" white tag. I didn't attach them to the card at that time. When I was satisfied with the arrangement I stamped the sentiment and embossed it. Next I added legs to the circles. Then I ran the tag through a Sizzix birthday embossing folder and attached it to a blank red card.
Then I glued the circles to the tag and attached the hat stickers. I cut punched out hearts in half to create a wing for each bird. I added some wiggly eyes and used tiny scraps to create beaks.
Here's the card.
Happy birthday Gayle!
Have a great day!
