Sweet Tweets

Hello friends,

My card today features something that is a bit different from my usual card style – an embossing folder as main image. I do not use embossing folders often on my cards but when I saw this Darice embossing folder I immediately fell in love with the sweet little bird cages. To let the embossed bird cages pop a little more, I coloured each of them with distress ink and added a few pearls.The purple birds are fussy cut from a second embossed image and attached with mirror tape for a dimensional look. The sentiment is cut with a Spellbinders die D-Lites. A green flourish and shades of purple roses complete the card.

Challenges:

Project details:

  • White and lilac cardstock
  • FabScraps designer paper “Marie Antoinette”
  • Darice embossing folder “Bird cages”
  • Spellbinders die D-Lites ‘Sentiments Three” (S2-139)
  • Marianne Design Creatables “Leaf Flourish” (LR0051)
  • Tim Holtz distress inks “Milled lavender” and “Peeled Paint”
  • Roses in shades of purple and pink
  • Pearls
  • Skwiglues glitter “Crystal”

Thanks for visiting today and looking at my card. I would love to know what you think of my card and appreciate your comments so much. Have a wonderful day and happy crafting.

Kind regards,

Amelia

    This is gorgeous! I love the soft colours and the little details you’ve added in the card. Great idea to use the embossed image in the main role and the inking highlights it beautifully! Thank you for joining us at Open-Minded Crafting Fun Challenges and Good Luck! Hope to see you back again soon.
