Love Birds

I noticed over at the Copic Creations Challenge blog that the current challenge is for a card with a bird theme. Since I hadn't made a card yet for my Lovebirds digistamp, I decided to create one and enter it into the challenge.

This easel card was made from numerous layers of green and yellow cardstock and Basic Grey's Origins Aromatherapy paper. I used my sewing machine to sew the patterned paper to a cardstock mat on both the front and inside of the card.

Here is a side view to see how the layers are raised on foam dimensionals for even more depth:


The image and it's mats were cut out using Spellbinders dies and my Cuttlebug. The background cardstock was punched with a Martha Stewart punch and decorated with Recollections brown pearls.

The ribbon is by Celebrations from Michaels and the daisies were purchased loose from my LSS. Another Martha Stewart punch was used for the leaves.

Copic colours for the Lovebirds are as follows:

Birds: Y11, Y15, Y17, YR04, YR07, YR09,
YG11, YG13, YG17,
W3, W7, E44, E47 and E49
Branch: E70, E71, E74, E79
If you want this digistamp, head over to my DigiDrawn site to purchase it HERE!
