Pretty Birds in a frame


The card base is Thick Basic White Cardstock, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. The largest frame was cut with the largest Deckled Rectangles Die and the third largest, from Hues Of Happiness Designer Paper.

The smaller frame was cut with the second largest Deckled Rectangles Die, and the sixth largest, from Perfectly Penciled Designer Paper. After cutting, I glued them evenly on the backside, and attached Foam Adhesive Strips to raise the frame.


Next, I stamped the birds, from the Pretty Birds Stamp Set, in Memento Black Ink on Basic White Cardstock. Then, I matched the stamp for “two-step” stamping, and stamped them in Parakeet Party Ink. They were easily cut with their Birdhouse Die, and placed on double Dimensionals, so they would be equal height to the frame.


The background for the birds was made with the “center” from largest frame. Before gluing it to the middle of the card base, I stamped the sentiment in Stazon Black Ink. I found “from all of us” in the Party Puffins Stamp Set. I guess this is something birds like to say!

Finally, I peeled the backing from the Foam Adhesive Strips, attached the frame, and then the birds. I also HAD to add three Classic Matte Dots.


I was inspired by TGIF.

“The delicate design of the Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder is subtle enough to match any project but it does not hold back on beauty. Leave the embossed look neutral to emphasize its texture, or get creative and use watercolor to accentuate the florals.”
