A Tweet Thank You!



I made this card a few days ago. It is a card for one of my uplines to thank her. She is a wonderful and very talented woman!

All products are from Stampin' Up! I used the bird stamp from the Fun & Fast Notes set and the thank you from the Much Appreciated set. I used started out with the dp from Flowers for You and went with that to coordinate my colors for the rest of the card. I used Lovely Lilac and Tempting Turquoise cs. I also used whisper white cs too! I make the scalloped edge I used my 3/4 inch circle punch and a piece of the Sticky Strip. I first placed the strip on the back of the lovely lilac cs and then pealed off the red strip to expose the sticky tape. I then placed the circles right next to each other. For the bird and the saying, I stamped them in Stazon black. I used my blender pen along with pixie pink, garden green, and sky blue classic ink pads to color in the bird. I also used my so saffron marker to color in the beak. I thought that I would make the bird pop a bit my using my blender pen and the basic gray ink pad to shade around the bird. To the flower, I attached a pink rhinestone brad from the fire collection. I attached all of this to the tempting turquoise and then popped that layer with some dimensionals.

I enjoyed making this card because I used colors that I do not normally use, but really like! Thanks for looking and have a wonderful day!
