Bird Love Card

 Hello again.  Here is a card that I made with my online stamping group recently on zoom. 

 I thought that the bird stamp (Our Daily Bread Designs) would look cute in a heart die cut.  However, in order to make this fancy fold, I needed the die cut to be longer to get enough adhesive on the card base to secure it.  So I just put a label die cut behind this.  The paper is from Prima.

Here is the view from the side.  This card will fold flat in and envelope, but it does not open up, instead you can write your message on the back, and it stands up very easily to display it.  

Thanks for visiting.  Hope you are ver well.

Learn to Trust

 Hello everyone.  

Hey, I should tell you, the number “one” and “exclamation point” button on my keyboard is broken.  It makes it hard to write a blog as usual, but I am getting by because I really don’t want to spend money on it right away.  (I think it shorted out last week when I spilt a little milk on it.)

Anyhow, than you very much for all your recent kind comments. I had a chance to make a quick card yesterday, during the storm, and here it is.

I used a previously-made gelli print background.  I believe this was mostly Distress Paints, spread around with some cardboard that I cut a decorative edge with some of those old, patterned scrapbook scissors.  The stamp is Our Daily Bread Designs, an old one, that was gifted to me by a stamping friend.  The saying is a nice reminder.

I did add some glitter glue to the frame part of the stamp, I think you may be able to see it in this close up shot.

I hope you are doing well, and look forward to hearing from you soon.
