SPELLBINDERS – The bird of spring Card
Hi! Mayline here with you again and I am excited to be sharing my second guest post on the Spellbinders blog. For today’s post, I’ve created a clean and simple style card with the Flower Garden collection by Sharyn Sowell.
To start off I created a background using a blending technique with light blue colour ink on 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ white cardstock panel. And set aside. Next, I used the Bird on Cherry Branch dies to cut leaves, bird, wing and cherry branch from 300g watercolour papers. After that, I coloured them all using watercolour paints. I then started to create a green panel with watercolour paints. After drying the panel, I cut leaves repeatedly using the Bird on Cherry Branch dies.
With the die cutting complete, I adhered the wing to the bird and leaves to cherry branch using liquid glue. And then I attached them on the blended paper that I have created at the beginning. Next, I stamped a sentiment using white pigment ink on the black paper and cut it in a banner shape. I then adhered it on the paper. Next, I applied glossy accents on the cherry and Wink of Stella Glitter Pen on the die cutting leaves only.
And then I felt that the bottom of the card has too much white space so I decided to add something. So, I used the Floral Photo Frame dies to cut some beautiful botanical style shape using white cardstock. After that, I attached it to the paper.
Lastly, I die cut Shapeabilities Floral Gatefold Etched dies using a light blue paper and then I adhered it to the side flaps folded to the back. It’s simple and easy to make a beautiful envelope using Shapeabilities Floral Gatefold Etched dies.
