Blue Birds in the Garden

Hello, I had so much fun creating this card. My name is Beckie and I am paper punch addict!! So it's no wonder that I had so much fun making this card. I really love the in-laid look that the Lattice Textured Impressions Embossing Folder adds to the project - the punched images just seem to pop right off the page.

I started first by choosing the colours - I wanted to pick colours that complimented each other, while being able to give that POP of colour. I went with Old Olive, Night of Navy, Marina Mist and Island Indigo. The impact that the black background gives to the punched images is the key to this dramatic effect. I first made my pattern, then used Tombo liquid glue to attach my pieces and embossed them - except the birds and the greeting - I added them after with dimensionals for a bit more POP to my card.
I used the Bird Builder Punch, the Boho Blossoms Punch, the Word Window Punch and the Itty Bitty Punch Pack for the circles in the center of the flowers. I had so much fun making this card, I tried it in some other colours too and they all produce the same effect - a stunning card! I get so many compliments on them... unfortunately they are cards that I will keep in my collection of samples as I can bear to part with them! Check out a purple version I made too!! I used Rich Razzleberry, and Wisteria Wonder.
