Card Tutorial Best Birds Inkredible Techniques

Hello Inkredible Friends!

While it may seem, in some parts of the country, that winter is dragging on spring WILL be here before you know it. I am living in an area that has seen wild changes this season...we've had record breaking lows then record, or near-record breaking highs--sometimes in the same week! We've also had a nice (in my opinion) mix of snow, sleet, rain, and sunshine. A little bit of everything.  Having said that, I do look forward to the arrival of spring. What's it been like where you are and what are you most looking forward to this spring?

Today, I am sharing a card that features the 'Best Birds' Stampin' Up set and the 'Just Add Text' stamp set. See below for the supply list and instructions. 

Do you enjoy making cards, scrapbook pages, or 3d paper projects? Do you love having a variety of coordinating products and tutorials to guide you along the way?  If you have a wish list of items that totals around $100 consider joining my team rather than 'just ordering'. Why? Because from now through March 31, 2018 there are extra incentives with NO OBLIGATION.

1- Cut card base out of Dapper Denim at 5 1/2 X 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4

2-Cut designer paper- one base panel at 5 1/4 X 4 and one strip 5 1/4 X 2. Assemble the 2 inch strip to the designer panel about 1/2 inch from the left side. 

3-Using a scrap piece of whisper white cardstock stamp the bird in the tuxedo black ink and color in using the blend markers. Cut out using the large stitched circle framelit. Place the stitched circle in the upper right corner designer paper panel about 1/2 down from the top and let the right side of the circle hang off a bit from the edge. Trim the right side of the circle to be flush with the designer paper panel. 

4- Using the square stitched framelit that measures 2 1/8 cut two pieces out of Dapper Denim and cut each piece in half (so you have a total of 4 pieces), and cut one square out of Whisper White.  On the Whisper White square stamp the sentiment in Dapper Denim and stamp the small flowers (one in crushed curry and one in dapper denim) below the sentiment. 

5-Attach the Dapper Denim edges to the back of the Whisper White square. Using dimensionals attach that square panel to the card base.

6- Embellish with Rhinestone Jewels.

7-Send to a friend!
