There are lots of snow covered areas on the weather map today! I am happy that hasn't included us this go around. If we get a call that our newest grandbaby is on the way I sure don't want to have to worry about travel conditions around here...it gets scary! It did get cool and windy yesterday afternoon.
In light of all the cold, I thought I'd share a bright and bold card I created using the Sale-A-Bration set, A Happy Thing. This one was created for a friend of mine who loves birds like I do!
The first thing I did was emboss the bird image in White Stampin' Emboss Powder onto a piece of Watercolor Paper. The coloring was simple with the Aqua Painter and re-inkers in Tempting Turquoise, Real Red and Daffodil Delight. The re-inkers were watered down and applied "loosely" to the bird, letting the colors mix and mingle. Such a colorful bird needed an awesome piece of Designer Series Paper on which to perch and that was found in another Sale-A-Bration freebie, the Best Year Ever DSP. I paired it up with some Crushed Curry card stock and Crushed Curry Chevron Ribbon for another bright touch. Happy Birthday from And Many More was carefully stamped, using the Stamp-a-ma-jig, in the corner of the bird panel. I can just hear that bird singing "happy birthday to you"!
And inside it's very simple with just a hint of watercoloring over another sentiment from And Many More. I wish I could "bold" the font but the recipient shouldn't have any trouble reading it up close and personal!
This card went out over the weekend along with several others. It's always a good feeling to get cards into the mailbox! I hope to work on Valentine cards for the grandchildren today. I'll let you know how that goes! Have a great day and be sure to click the image below to check out the new Weekly Deals for this week! - Dawn
