Hello everyone. TGIF! Today’s card was inspired by the My Time Made Easy Pretty Pattern Sketch #53. I have been playing along with their challenges and having a great time. It’s been very inspirational for me. Here is the sketch…
I wanted to make a card for a house warming party so I decided to use a birdhouse theme. Green, blue and brown were the obvious colour choices here (sky, leaves, tree bark). The papers were a mix of scraps I had laying around and the stamp sets I used were from CTMH – Bless This Nest (retired) and Splendid Day. The ink colours are Chocolate and Lagoon.
I cut out the tree branches, leaves and banner pieces using the CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge. A lot of things on this card are popped up with dimensional foam (branches, banner and roof of birdhouse) because I wanted to get the feeling of peeking through the branches of a tree to see the birds and birdhouse. I strung the banner on Lagoon Baker’s Twine from the Paradise Assortment and added blue gems to the bottom of each banner flag for a little bling.
A very different kind of card but it was fun and challenging to make. That’s the beauty of crafts – you never know what you will come up with next. Have a great weekend everyone.
