For my card, I decided to keep the stamping simple and focus on the fold. So, I used the Two Step Bird punch and Floral Fusion Sizzlits die as the focal points. It also made things easier for all 5 of us to assemble the card, at one time. CLICK HERE for a great tutorial on how to make a Joy Fold Card, if you have never tried one before.
All of the supplies used are listed at the end of the post. I decided to base the color combo around the Greenhouse Gala DSP. I love that paper but haven't used it in quite some time. It is really a great mix for the spring season and perfect for a "bird-day" card...yup, I'm trying to be "punny" again...don't worry, I'm not planning on doing stand-up comedy anytime soon. Thank goodness, huh? *insert sound of chirping crickets here*
The only stamping on the card was on the front and inside sentiment. Even though the sentiments came from the Create A Cupcake stamp set (Occasions Mini catalog), they work great for non-cupcake themed projects, as well. Haha! :)
I'm also entering my card in these fabulous challenges, because they (thankfuly) helped to inspire my creativity while putting this one together:
*Dutch Dare Card Challenge: Create a CELEBRATION themed card
*Paper Cutz Challenge: Make a card, LO or craft project using 3 patterned papers, and any colors or theme you’d like (the bird wing is my third DSP...it is TINY, but it works)
*Ginger Loft: Use Die Cuts and/or Punches
Thanks for stopping by today for a visit! Please leave a comment to say hello, before you go. Have a very HAPPY day today and please stop back soon!
