Happy Easter everyone! Who else is happy that the work week is over and we get to enjoy a long weekend?! Me, me, me!
Todays challenge is to "use wood". I kinda sorta TOTALLY enjoyed making this card. This is why I LOVE doing these challenges with these BFF's of mine. They come up with stuff that I never would have thought to do on my own. I've had these thin wooden sheets from Stampin Up for ages and have barely touched them. What better way to use them then to make an adorable little bird house. The wood sheets emboss wonderfully. I just ran it through my Cuttlebug in a polka dot folder. The sheets have a white paper backing which I traced out a bird house shape onto and cut it out with scissors. Yes, these little sheets of wood are fantastic.
But I didn't stop there.....I used more wood. I had bought some "Easter" twigs at the dollar store because they had the cutest bird nests attached to them (I'll show those below in a minute). I tied a few pieces of that twig together with some bakers twine and adhered it below the birdhouse.
I heat embossed the music notes (Glee stamp set from TT) and put a punched red border strip below. The hand trimmed sentiment completes the card. The sentiment is Ali Edwards handwriting which I have always loved and most likely why I love trimming the sentiments out like I do. The set is called So Sorry from TT.
Let's check the BFF's, shall we?
I mentioned in my last post that I don't really decorate for Easter but I wanted to share what I did do. The dollar store "nests" I mentioned above were attached to a big bunch of twigs. I cut them off and placed them under these glass cloches. While they aren't a big splash of pastel colour I love that they are so simple and pretty. I have 4 total so there are 2 others randomly placed in the house. Have a wonderful Easter weekend friends!
