Beautiful Card Designs Made Easy

Tuesday Tutorial - Bird Sanctuary

Hi Everybody,

Todays card is really quick and easy and for this I have used bright colours and feathers. I have hand written the sentiment around the edge of the card and it's not supposed to be neat. It is purely a fun card that could go to any age or gender
Spellbinders Supplies:
  • 6x6 Matting Basics A
  • 6x6 matting Basics B
  • Bird Sanctuary 
  • Platinum Die Cutting Machine
Other Supplies:
  • Lace from Wild Orchid Crafts
  • Ribbon
  • Feather
  • Patterned Papers
With die#8 from 6x6 Matting Basics A cut two panels in purple and create the base card
With die #8 from 6x6 Matting Basics B cut another panel in a deeper shade of purple
With die #7 from the A set cut two panels in patterned paper and cut one of them in half
Cut the birds from some purple card and ink through the die to add shading to the bodies
Cut one more bird from some bright coloured card and flip it over. 
Ink through the die and this bird will be facing the other way
Add a brightly coloured tail feather to this one
Layer up the papers and wrap with lace and ribbon
Add these to the base card
Hand write "One In A Million" around the edge of the card
Sit the purple bids on the ribbon to face one way and the bright bird to face the other
Send with love 

More tomorrow ...
