Free As A Bird Friend Card - Kylie's International Blog Highlights

   Hi crafty people! How are you doing? It is the start of another week. Did you have a good weekend? They always seem so much shorted in the summer. Well it is that time again where I need your help. Once again I am taking part in Kylie's International Blog Highlights and I need your vote. The theme is always Encouragement as it is always something need in today's society. Here is my card.....

     The DSP (Designers Series Paper) for the Bird Ballad Suite is one of the most beautiful DSPs I have seen since I have been with Stampin' Up! And when I saw this piece I knew I could fussy cut out all the amazing features on it. And as a tip if a piece doesn't fit in the place you want to put it, just trim it. I did this for the upper piece. It had a branch coming off of it that wasn't fitting so I just cut it off and no one can tell.

   For the bird I used the Stampin' Blends to it. I blended the Pool Party Light into the Daffodil Delight Light where they meet so there isn't any harsh lines. Harder to see in this pic, but I embossed the background using the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder. I have fallen in love with this one. I think it will be a lot like the Subtle one, it will become more popular as people see more examples with it. It gives just enough texture to keep the background from looking too plain.

   I kept the inside more simple with a stamped sentiment, flower, and leaf in one corner and the piece I trimmed off of the front piece that I fussy cut out of the DSP. I didn't want it to be wasted. Thank you so much for coming to my blog and I would really if you voted on my card over on Kylie's blog. The button is below and you can vote on up to 5 of your faves!
