Hello Stampin’ Friends,
I am happy to share a beautiful card with you today that I created with the Bird Ballad suite which features the Free as a Bird Bundle. My card was inspired by two friends, Evelyn from Canada and Becky who is in my downline! I have this amazing suite at home and when I saw what these ladies created, I decided to make one for you!!
April is my birthday month so I also have a “Special” deal for anyone who orders through me … plus, you’ll still receive your Virtual Rewards points! I’ll share more about that later. Now I would like to introduce you to my Bird Ballad card ….
The card highlights the Laser-cut card with envelopes that come in a pretty tin that you can keep, or give to a friend filled with beautiful cards. It is just part of the Bird Ballad Suite …
The Bird Ballad Suite Bundle gives you a coordinating selection of products with one simple purchase. It includes the stamp set and tool bundle at 10% off plus one each of the other items listed.
The Bird Ballad Suite Bundle includes
* Free as a Bird Cling Stamp Set (10% off)
* Stitched Nested Labels Dies (10% off)
* Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper
* Bird Ballad Laser-Cut Cards & Tin
* Very Vanilla 3/8″ (1 cm) Scalloped Lace Trim
* Bird Ballad Trinkets
Not only does my card highlight the Laser-cut Cards, it showcases the Bird Ballad Designer Series paper. The Laser-cut cards are beautiful and I really wanted emphasize the delicate lace pattern so I sponged the insert.
The great thing about this card is you can use any color cardstock behind the lace … or you can leave it just the way it is. I chose my colors based off the colors in the Bird Ballad Designer paper, and YES, I fussy cut out the bird and flowers. I find it relaxing… and we have plenty of time on our hands!
To create an illusion of depth, I sponged the edges of my Petal Pink cardstock with Calypso Coral and came in much farther on tow of my corners. I just really like this effect.
Here are the ingredients for today’s card … I have listed the entire suite, and then broke it down into the core items I used today …
APRIL BIRTHDAY SPECIAL ….
It’s my Birthday month so I’d like to celebrate by giving you a GIFT! Since “Diamonds” are my birthstone and April is “Tax Time” … I will either send you a package of Rhinestones OR will pay the taxes on your order …Whichever is MORE!! Qualifying orders of $50 or more (before Ship&Tax) can choose their FREE GIFT! You MUST place your order “though” me so I can apply the FREE TAX or add your Rhinestones for FREE. Here’s how it works … if you place a $50, the Rhinestones would be shipped FREE because they are higher in value than the taxes … if you placed a $100 or more order, you could choose! Tax will vary depending where you live. This offer is Valid ONLY through me all month long!
Lets finish up the card … I did fussy cut the bird and flowers from the designer paper and layered the flowers for added dimension. To complete my card I added some Wink of Stella to the flowers.
I love this card, and it was pretty easy to make. The beautiful laser-cut cards brings it to another level, without the work.
