It was another fun and exciting Thursday Live and I want to thank everyone who joining me. Last night’s cards were for the birds! Why do you ask? Because we were playing with the Pretty Birds bundle. You can download the PDF for these cards. Also, there is a list of the products used in creating these cards. I will be back on Saturday to create a 3D bird cage that will go perfectly with this duo.

If you missed the live, you can catch the replay here.

In creating last night’s cards, I went for the unordinary in color combinations. I would never have thought to put Blackberry Bliss and Old Olive together to create cards. But I wanted a vintage feel to the cards and these colors are perfect.

The first card is layer upon layer. The postman will just love adding postage to this card! I stuck with the old olive for the designer series paper. There is also embossing with powder and an embossing folder. The parakeets in this stamp set are just adorable.

I brought the same little birds from the front of the card to the inside of the card. Not wanting the birds to look like they were floating in air, I grounded them with a strip of designer series paper and old olive.

For the second card, I just had to show off the beautiful bird cage die. So much can be done with this die. This card also has many layers. The added flowers at the top of the cage are from my stash.

The inside of the second card pulled elements from the front of the card also. Plus, I wanted to add that gorgeous bird cage stamp. Now do you see why I said that these cards are for the birds.
