Bird & Bloom Box & Notes


My mom requested I make her a set of "bird" notecards.  Since she'll probably be mailing them, I didn't want to add a lot of ribbon or bling, but I think the tiny pearl embellishments dress it up just a bit.  As you've probably noticed, my style leans towards Clean and Simple - mostly because I'm just never sure of where to add a bow LOL

She likes the aqua/turquoise color family, so I did use a retired color that I just love, Sage Shadow.

Still trying to get the hang of the watermark - the colors are ALWAYS different than what I think I made!  Oh well.

Happy stamping!

Card recipe:
Sage Shadow (retired) and Very Vanilla (textured) cardstock, Punch Potpourri (hostess set, retiring June 30!!!  If you like the images, get your $150 order in by June 29 or host a workshop or class before then!), Two Step Bird, Scallop Lace, Modern Label, and Word Window punches, sentiment from Three Little Words, Sage Shadow classic ink (retired)

Box instructions to follow once I can figure out how to draw it out and scan it.  Thanks to my SIL Susan, a former Stampin' Up! demo for giving me a bag full of projects to take apart and play with :)
