I had a bit of excitement on Thursday as my younger brother (who I haven't seen for six years) came home from Australia for a short visit. He brought with him a surprise present from my friend Meryl and it was this Marianne bird die. I think it's gorgeous and it will be used often.
To make this card,
I embossed the base card with a Tim Holtz Damask embossing folder in the Big Shot.
I cut a smaller piece of white card and machine stitched around the edge.
I inked the sentiment with black ink, stamped once on scrap paper and then on the white card (so it wasn't as stark against the white).
I die cut the bird twice, keeping the first intact and only using the leaves and wing from the second.
Then I layered these on the card leaving the leaves free to move.
To finish I used a white pearl on the sentiment.
I have enjoyed this weeks challenge and thank you to all who visited last time and for all your lovely comments. They mean a lot to me :)
As soon as I can get them uploaded, I will be back with pics of party boxes I made for Caleb's birthday.......
