We enjoyed the lovely weekend with Andy home, take him to the airport today :-(
I did a little bit of gardening on the weekend, please remind me not to leave it so long to weed! I only did the back garden and that took me 2 1/2 hours! I still have to do the front, but that will have to wait, as it got too hot yesterday.
This card took me under an hour to make. I did it first thing yesterday morning when I was pottering around and in between wash loads.
Firstly, I cut three different scraps into strips of 3/4".
I used a base piece of card stock (from my plain scraps), I made sure it was big enough for two pieces for my 8" by 3" card. One for the outside and one for the inside :-)
Covered the base card stock with double sided sticky tape - you could use adhesive card stock, but I don't have any :-) Then just added the strips of paper diagonally across the base.
Then I trimmed it and cut it to fit my card.
Stamped another piece of scrap with the bird and birdcage and added a little Thank You stamp underneath.
All the edges of all the layers have been inked with CTMH Cocoa.
I added a few pearl dots from Flourish with a Bling to finish of the front, and placed the image and sentiment up on foam dots and tape to add dimension.
For the inside I added the patterned background and a little panel, stamped with the bird, to write a message.
That's it, another quick card and using up my scraps.
Thanks for stopping by today.
