My friend Carri over at Double Click Connections AKA A Busy Bee, is a proud DT member at both The Creative Cutter Room and Bitten By the Bug 2. I love supporting my bloggy friends by entering in challenges where they are design team members.
The challenge over at Creative Cutter Room, is to make a card that includes the following:
a thank you card, a stamp, at least 2 buttons and embossing.
My card shapes comes from a tag on the Preserves cart, but you can use any tag from any other cart too. I sized it to 4 1/4"tall x 5 1/2" wide. The coordinating layers are sized down by 1/4". The white and brown paper is generic card stock. All the green is Heidi Grace paper (I love the pattern).
I embossed the Scrappy Mom's stamp in white embossing powder to coordinate with the white gel pen stitching. It got a little messy... I really need to get an embossing buddy. :(
The glittery white paper on the bird house is from DCWV's glitter stack (I think) and came from my scraps. I added a little Star Dust Stickles to the pink layer. The birdhouse is mounted up on 1/4" pop dots. The birdhouse is from Cindy Loo, cut at 3".
I laced the three little green button with some white craft twine. I inked all the green layers using forest green ink and my finger dauber. I also inked the white layer of the bird house and all the little leaves the same way. When I attached the branch (Cindy Loo, cut at 4 3/4" wide), I glued the brown branch layer down directly to the card, the leave are all attached with 1/8" pop dots. I love the dimension this technique adds. :)
One last look at my Birdhouse Thank You Card. I love it. I'll have to come up with a really good reason to give this one away.
