A traveller ... Card

Hi folks!

It's that time of week again. This week's project uses two images from the Stamp-It Australia Discovery collection.

I stamped the Hummingbird Wings on some Ultra Smooth Premium Cardstock. I cut this out (refer to photo), used a glue stick and stuck it onto a scrap of black. I cut out the image again, leaving a border of black. See the completed card photo for the finished cut around the bird.

I only used part of the Bird Cage image. I stamped it on a piece of Ultra Smooth Premium Cardstock four times. Please refer to the photo for placement of the cages.

I cut this card stock down to a 4 5/16" square. I used Extra Strong Permenent Tape to attach this to a 4 1/2" square piece of red card stock.

Using the tape again, I stuck the bird cage layer onto the front center of a 5" square, black with dotted-swiss texture card base. This card has a side fold.

Last, I used double sided adhesive foam to attach the bird image to the center of the card. Now, it's done.

Remember to look at your stamps in a different way. See if you can make a decorative image by stamping only part of the stamp.

I like a simple card. This card is simple. I hope you like it too.

Until next time, I am ever searching for inspiration.
