Birds On A Wire Say Hello!
Hello everyone!! I wasn't planning a post today but wanted to share this quick, easy, and fun card I made yesterday. We have a really nice customer who loves to call the store and say "Hello. It's Adele". LOL. Yesterday she placed an order and one of the things she bought was this stencil -
and, I do not know why, but I thought of a card with one of the birds saying "hello" in a speech bubble. And then I went to work....
I started with a top folding A2 card base of black cardstock to which I adhered a piece of decorative paper 4" x 5 1/4".
I used my Blueprints 1 set by MFT and cut and embossed a piece of white cardstock with the smallest rectangle die and a piece of black with the larger die.
I placed a piece of white cardstock on my mat and then secured the section of the stencil I wanted to use, over the white cardstock with painter's tape. Then, using a dauber and Versafine Onyx Black ink, I dabbed the ink through the stencil.
to get this -
Then I adhered the white cardstock to the black cardstock, which I then adhered to the card front.
Now, I could have stopped here but I still needed a speech bubble with "hello" in it. I found the perfect stamp from Goodies, a Brasilian company. I stamped the image in Versafine and fussy cut it out. Then I placed a pop dot behind it and placed it on the card front so that the bird was saying "hello".
Done!! I really loved how quick and easy this card came together. And it was nice card without the speech bubble too. Here are the two cards in final form.
Leave me a comment below and let me know which one you liked better. Stop back tomorrow when I have a Christmas card for you guys. Until then -
Hugs from Brasil -
