Embossed bird

Easy peasy, lemon squeezy – and pretty effective, too. This bird is really striking when punched from vellum cardstock, which I’d already stamped using the Whisper White craft ink pad and embossed with clear embossing powder. I embossed the same flowers in white on some Whisper White cardstock, too, to create the wing. The Whisper White ink came out one last time to be stamped in the corners of the card base using the dotty stamp from Bird on a Branch.

  1. Oooh - this is scrummy! Love the way you have done the bird with the embossing and vellum, and the speckled corners.

  2. It is the perfect card. Simple, elegant, attractive. I really like it.

  3. I like the unexpected color combo of Rose Red and Elegant Eggplant. Nicely done!


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment.
