Ode to Bird Banter!

Products come and go.  It's the nature of the game.  There's nothing better than having new stuff to play with.  But there are those few sets that tug at your heart.  Bird Banter is my tug.  I love those birds!  So I wanted to use it for a blog post one more time.  I did sneak in a little of the new.

My card base is Mossy Meadow cut at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  Mossy Meadow is coming back!  Exciting!

The Pear Pizzazz layer measures 3 3/4 x 5.  Stamp randomly in Mossy Meadow the little leaves from the Bird Banter set.

Take one of the Pearlized Doilies and cut off 1/3 of it.  Color the back of it with Mossy Meadow.  I ended up just laying the doily down on the pad and pressing to get great color.  It was messy.  If you do it this way, washing hands is a must when done!  Hint:  the pearlized size does not take color.  Wipe it off or you'll mess up your project!

The patterned paper is new from the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper.  It's 1 1/4 x 3 3/4.

Add a branch in Early Espresso using the Seasonal Layers Thinlits.

The Mossy Meadow leaves are cut using the Eclectic Layers Thinlits.  I used three of them.  The extra at the lower right are covering a smudge.  I'm pointing this out because that's what stampers do.  We fix our mistakes if we can!

The birds are stamped in Memento Black and colored with Blends.  I used Light and Dark Daffodil Delight, Light and Dark Pumpkin Pie, and Light Old Olive.  Fussy cut and attach to the card with dimensionals.

Stamp the sentiment in Mossy Meadow and trim around it.  It's also attached with dimensionals.

For the inside, add a sentiment from the Bird Banter set and another bird down in the corner.

This is the perfect friend card.  I just love the saying about sharing your branch with someone.  Wouldn't you like to get this card?
