Today i'm sharing a card i made a couple of weeks ago! In fact if you have been reading my blog lately you've noticed i have mentioned a stack of cards that are just hanging out at my desk waiting to be blogged about! Well i starting a Summer Cleaning (like spring cleaning, only well ... in late summer!!! haha!!) This cleaning includes doing some craft purging and getting it all up on ebay (and i have a lot, some still in boxes from when i moved!), when purging is done - re-organization of my crafty space will be completed, my closet and clothes are going to get a purging too!! Also as part of this cleaning i'm going to blog every last card that is on my desk!! I will have to make a couple new ones for my design teams, but other then that, not making another card until my desk is clear!!! (then it can start all over again, ha!!!)
So to kick it off i'm sharing this card!! On the TAWS team the Alison challenged us with keywords and photo inspiration and i got a lot of cards done!! The keyword for this card was twine!!!
I cut a panel from Kraft card stock and used a Tim Holtz ruler (it has tiny holes, like every 1/8th or something. With a pencil i marked every other hole, then punched each mark with a tiny hole punch. Next i threaded black twine through the holes, randomly choosing holes that matched (side to side) to some that didn't.
Then i stamped the two birdies from Lighter Then Air multiple times on watercolor paper. I colored them with distress markers and cut them out. Next i randomly placed the birds on my twine panel, when i was happy with the layout i adhered them with foam dots.
Last i needed a sentiment, i used Chirp from the Birds of a Feather set and stamped in 3 times in the bigger spaces made from the twine criss-crosses. On the inside i stamped Happy Bird-Day and added one last bird.
Thanks for stopping by!!
