I'm starting classes this week, so I'm making cards different than the class cards, using the Best Birds stamp set, in order to show the versatility of this set. My emphasis with classes this year is to focus on one stamp set at a time and making up to 4 different cards using that set. This maximizes the use of the stamp set.
The card I've made using the sketch with Create with Connie and Mary is a Valentine card. I noticed that one of the die cut birds has tiny hearts in the tail feathers, making it perfect for this type of card.
The basic Real Red card is layered with Whisper White card stock embossed with the Falling Petals embossing folder.
Two 2 1/2" strips of Sealed with Love DSP are adhered on the left side of the card. One piece if 2 1/2 by 4 1/4"; the other 2 1/2 by 4".
Two Real Red die cut birds were placed on a piece of silver metallic ribbon (SAB), with a small punched heart between them.
The sentiment, stamped in Real Red ink, is punched with a 1" circle punch layered with a 1 1/4" Real Red circle.
Some tiny Red Glimmer hearts (made by punching the Confetti heart border punch) were adhered around the sentiment. Another one was adhered to the center of the heart between the birds.
