Bird Ballard Birthday

April 6, 2020

I needed to make a birthday card for a friend of mine so I dusted off my neglected (of late) Bird Ballard Designer Series Paper.  I also used the sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.  Although  the challenge has already well and truly ended, I wanted to use the sketch to create my card.  I began by attaching a piece of the Bird Ballard Designer Series Paper to Whisper White card.  I embossed the combined Designer Series Paper/Whisper White card using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.  I love doing this technique it kind of “welds” everything together.  I attached the embossed card to scored and folded Early Espresso card.  I cut Whisper White card using the Stitched Shapes Dies and attached it to an Early Espresso scalloped circle cut using the Layering Circles Dies.  I cut the birds and flowers for the front of the card from one of the designs in the Bird Ballard Designer Series Paper and attached it to the Whisper White stitched circle.  The whole panel is attached to the card front using dimensionals.  I stamped the greeting from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set onto Whisper White card using Early Espresso ink.  I punched out the greeting using the Classic Label Punch.  I punched the greeting twice so that it just fitted around the greeting.  I inked the edges of the label using Early Espresso ink and attached it to the card front using dimensionals where necessary.

To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the greeting from the Perennial Birthday stamp set using Early Espresso ink.  I fussy cut the bird from the Bird Ballard Designer Series Paper and attached it to the lower left hand corner.

I love this card.  Thanks so much to Freshly Made Sketches for the inspiration and for a reason to use this beautiful Designer Series Paper.

Bye for now,

Kris
