CTMH Happy Birds Card

Our Wisconsin weather took several turns today. First it was cold, windy and rainy. For awhile the sun came out. Tonight there was snow mixed with a little rain. Just a good day to stay inside, wrap your hands around a cup of hot cocoa and maybe do a little crafting.

This was just one of my cards for today. I used the Happy Birds set from Close To My Heart. I really enjoy this set and keep finding ways to use it. Today I stamped the small flower all over my white card with Slate ink. Then I took a Q-Tip and quickly highlighted all the flowers with Thistle and Canary. I stamped the sentiment panel in Pear and Pacifica Inks.

Pear and Slate card stocks were used for layering the sentiment and Canary for layering the flowered panel. All of the card stocks used are available in the Adventure Combo Pack.

I felt the whole card was missing a little something, so I stamped one of the birds on Pacifica card stock using my VersaMark ink pad and then embossed with white embossing powder. Dimensional adhesive was used to mount the bird on the card.

So that’s my rainy day recipe. Thanks for joining me today and I hope you “have a beautiful day” wherever you are!
