Now that I've gotten my preorder I have been making lots of cards. I absolutely love using new stuff. The Annual Stampin' Up! 2020-2021 Catalog goes live soon on June 3rd. Are you finding it hard to wait? I'm sure you have been looking at Pinterest and finding cards using the new products. I sure have. Today I have a card for you using the Birds and Branches Bundle. The includes the stamp set and the Birds & More dies for a 10% savings. Here is my card.
This card begins with a base of Old Olive card stock that is cut to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.
The In Good Taste Designer Series Paper is fantastic. It's a large pack with 24 sheets, 2 each of 12 designs. You will love these natural woods and tiles with a few little surprises! Cut the wood look piece to 4 x 5 1/4.
The Birds & More dies cut the circle with greenery. I used a circle from the Layering Circles to cut it out all the way. This circle is just barely bigger than the circle with greenery. Be careful cutting it out. Glue to the center of the card.
The Whisper White stem of leaves is cut using the Birds & More dies. Adhere with glue.
Stamp the bird in Early Espresso with the more detailed stamp. Stamp again in Crumb Cake with the more solid bird. These stamps are photopolymer so it's pretty easy to line them up. Cut the bird out with the same dies. Glue so that he is sitting on the branch.
The saying is from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set. Stamp in Early Espresso ink and then fussy cut around the words. Add with dimensionals.
The bow is made with Linen Thread. Wrap the thread around four fingers about 4 times and then around 2 fingers about 4 times. Pull this carefully from your fingers and center everything. Twist and then tie together with another piece of the thread. Add with a glue dot.
Finish off the front of the card with silver Metallic Pearls.
For the inside of the card, the saying is from the Forever Fern stamp set. It's stamped in Early Espresso. Stamp the bird again directly on the insert layer the same as stamped on the front. Now add a bit of a branch cut out in Old Olive.
I know that you will love the Birds and Branches Bundle. I have more samples from this bundle that I'll be sharing along the way!
