Just Because Card - Thinking of You Birdhouse with Flowers.

Okay, I am totally loving this card. I adore purple and I love it matched up with green. I also enjoy making shape cards sometimes. The green patterned paper is from the DCWV Nursery stack, but it goes so nicely with this darker green and the two purples. I am going to soon make a video showing how I weld these cards together since I don't have a gypsy or design studio. I had a request for a video showing how to make the gift bag card, so once you see how I do it you can apply it to other shapes too. Anyway back to this card. I really wanted to accent the birdhouse to I used dark green for the roof cut, then I added thinner strips of the light purple to it. Then I added those two toned flowers with the gemstones. I love how that turned out. I used my Versamark for the sentiment and then used white embossing powder. I even used a dryer sheet on my paper but for some reason little bits of the powder still stuck to the paper. Oh well. I love the stitch lines I added, gives it a nice touch. The two birdies are so cute. I decided to cut their legs off and make them look like they were just laying there. I used glossy accents on their wings, flowers and beaks. I love this card so much. Hope you enjoy.
