Another Year

>> Wednesday, May 20, 2015

There's nothing better than having universal greeting cards in your stash that could be used for multiple occasions.  Like this card I'm sharing with you today, it could be used as a birthday card for someone who likes birds, or an anniversary card because of the way the birds look on the Lovebirds Branch (413H). It would all come down to what the rest of the greeting inside read, and for now I'm going to leave that option open until I actually decide to use this card.

The scene I created here was started with a piece of white cardstock.  I stamped the Lovebirds Branch 3 times in different places and at different positions coming from the right side of my card front.  Next, I stamped the Single Bird House (406D) near the bottom, masked it and then stamped the Picket Fence (478P) in place over top.  Everything here was colored with Copic Markers, including the sky and the grass.  I hand cut a piece of brown cardstock and embossed it with a wood grain embossing folder for a realistic look, and adhered it in place on the far right side. The final touch was adding the Another Year Flies By (489F) Greeting right in the center.  The card front was then added to a yellow cardstock base to make the card complete.
Have a great day,
