TOMORROW IS THE BIG DAY! THE START OF SALE-A-BRATION 2013!
In the meantime, here’s a simple thank you card created with the Stampin’ Up! For the Birds stamp set. I started with a card base of Natural White cardstock.
I stamped the birds with black StazOn in and watercolored them with the aquapainter and various ink refills. As usual, I didn’t try for perfection which I think is what makes watercoloring so charming! Can you see the Crystal Effects added to the heart?
The bird tag was punched out with the Decorative Label Punch and lifted off the card with dimensionals. It’s easy to pierce the paper to perfection with the Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack, Tool and Mat. The thank you is from the Embellished Events stamp set.
Paper scoring is super quick and easy with the Simply Scored Scoring Tool. I added the Marina Mist cardstock panel after adding the punched scallop border, the scoring and the paper piercing.
The ribbon is tied from the Daffodil Delight Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon. This months newsletter included tips to tie the perfect bow! Be sure and subscribe today to get your copy.
Originally when I made his card I placed the bow in the middle but I decided later I didn’t like it there. Because I had created a separate bow and adhered it with a glue dot, I just gently eased if off and moved it where I wanted it. I’m so much happier with the bow on the left! What do you think?
