Simple Little Card

Yesterday,  I remembered it was a friend's birthday and had to make a very quick card - this is the result.


I made the card blank and the small centre panel from Kraft card, the paper is from a First Edition pad called Desert Blooms, the frame and bird stamps are Marion Emberson Birds and Trees and the sentiment is from the new Hobby Art Birthday Collection.  Everthing is stamped with black Versafine ink and embossed with clear detail embossing powder.  I heated the birds from behind so they are nice and glossy and the patterned paper is glitter paper.  I am really pleased with how this turned out, I like the simplicity of it.  Its the first time I have used Kraft card and will be using it lots more, I love it!  Thank you for looking.   Take care.  Christine xx

I like the simplicity of this too - what a lovely stamp those birds are. Even though it was my maiden name I was always "Christine Smith" when at school. Only just recently realised that is your name too.

Hugs, Neet (confusing or what?)
