Happy Thoughts

>> Saturday, May 16, 2015

Good morning!
DRS stamps used: 951D Happy Thoughts, 478P Picket Fence  (new release), 406D single Birdhouse (new release), 395H Leafy Tree Branch (new release), and 413H Lovebird Branch (new release).
I did the embossing folder technique again today (actually did several while I had everything out the other day and just made lots of backgrounds to use later). I stamped all my elements including the fence on to regular white smooth cardstock, colored and cut out (the fence I just cut out the top then used the same Spellbinder Bracket border die to cut the bottom).  I glued all the pieces down except for the Lovebird Branch, I popped that one up with foam tape.  
I edged this background panel with the distress ink used (Peacock Feathers) since I decided NOT to mat it before gluing to the card base.  I also edged the white panel at the bottom to match. The scroll design of the bracket border was first backed with the blue used as a card base (it is not the card showing through).   I don't mind fussy cutting as you can probably tell.  It is therapeutic and fun to me, just like coloring is.
I made a small yellow bow for the birdhouse to finish this card off.
Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you get time to create some cards of your own today!

The background is so pretty and I love the way you cut out the fence and made it fit with the die cut! So cool!
