The challenge over at Tanda Stamps this week was entitled "A Bird In The Hand" ... so I thought I'd enter this card which was the result of the first session I had with my new Cuttlebug.
(I know most people and their Aunties have had one for years but I was never known for being in vogue LOL)
I wanted to try all the folders at once ... as you do ... so hence the kind've 'mish~mashed' look.
The purple card has an almost velvety feel to it that wasn't obvious until it was embossed ... very strange.
Offcuts made dinky wee wings so even scraps were saved from the bin.
The patterned paper was included in a birthday gift from Sarah (aka Tiggertastic) and may be from one of the Laura Ashley collections.
I embossed some of it with the Perfect Paisley embossing folder and then cut out the 2 birdies from the impressions before attaching them with foam pads. If you click the image for a close up you can see the embossing on the birds more clearly.
The embossed message was one of the With Love border folders so I used 3 folders for one card ... a bit greedy huh?
A gel pen and gold Pearl Pen helped with highlighting.
