I sketched out the idea for a card awhile back and finally had the time to sit down and make it happen. As I pulled out papers to work on it I realized it would make a great set of cards so that's just what I did, I could not be more pleased with how they turned out.
I used different weathered wood papers from the new On The Bright Side Collection from My Mind's Eye. I selected them based on color as well as orientation of the wood, so that each card would be different but still look like they belonged together.
The square wood panel is 3" x 3" and I carefully selected the most interesting corner of each paper so the exposed portions (around the square and through the bird) would draw more interest.
The crochet ribbon is from May Arts and each card features a different sentiment from the Hero Arts All Occasion Messages set stamped in Rich Cocoa ink on cream cardstock. The bird die is from Memory Box. I cut each bird in the center of the square then pierced around the edges. The die cut piece is adhered with foam adhesive for some dimension and to cast a slight shadow on the wood panel behind.
I love that there was a diagonal wood pattern in this paper pad. It allowed me to make each card different in orientation as well as color. I'm thinking about making some more of these cards, I think they would look so sweet packaged up together as a gift.
Thanks for stopping by today!
