Today I have a card for you that was inspired by my trip to the Stampin' Up! Australian 2012 Convention in Brisbane. Beth Stewart, a fellow demonstrator did a fantastic WOW presentation on using the Elegant Bird die from the Stampin' Up! Autumn catalogue. This inspired me to look at this die more closely and all the possibilities, which led to this wedding card.
Features of this Card
- The Elegant Bird Die is deisgned for the BigShot but can be used with most other die cutting machines including the Cuttlebug.
- A combination of prints and textures works great on these birds. I have achieved that by using Stampin' Up! Glimmer Paper, Stampin' Up! Textured Expressions Embossing Folders, and heat embossing.
- For an elegant background, I have clear embossed using the gorgeous Stampin' Up! Parlour Prints background stamp. I have used this a lot lately! The Stampin' Up! Addorning Accents Edgelits were used for that lovely edging.
- The vintage flower is very easy and I will have step by step instructions for that one in my blog newsletter next week (sign up top of right hand column)
and here's a close up:
I hope this card brings a smile to your face :) Have a fabulous Thursday wherever in the world you are. It's chilly and wet here in Melbourne today but I feel warm and happy.
Until next time,
