Bird Card

I got a couple NEW Cuttlebug large embossing folders. I LOVE the large embossing folders! This one is birds and swirls. It's so pretty!

The bird stamp is from a Stampin' Up set, and I don't think I've ever used it before, but wow, is it PERFECT on this card! I love it! I colored the bird with colored pencils and used gamsol. I added a Prima with a button, some twill, and three brads. I'm really pleased with this card! It's subtle and I love all the natural colors.

It's so COLD again! This winter is exhausting! I just wish it would warm up a little! Thanks for stopping by!!

I love the birds & swirls -hmmmm I don't think I have that one :-( You are right, the bird stamp goes perfectly with the embossing!

:sending warm weather your way: hope it helps :-) Our weather has been so loopy - if it's not cold one day it is hot the next and then our neighboring city gets slammed with a tornado!

Great card, Carol! I love the embossing folder you used - I almost bought it last week, but hesitated because I hadn't seen a good sample - this is definitely what I was waiting for! I love the colors you used and the twill!
