Weathered Birdie

Here's another card made this week...

A masculine "Thinking of You" card without actually saying so. ;-)
Something I really like about this card is that it could be used for many occasions!

Oh, and I love that I was able to use some of my new stuff! ;-)

Well, most of it new to me, anyways.
The BG stamp is Stampin' Up's "Woodgrain", the bird is from Stampin' Up's "Friends 24-7". 

The 5/8" satin ribbon IS's in the Occasions Mini catalog.  Have you checked it out yet?  Oh's WONDERFUL!!  So many fun things in there! Go ahead, go to the RH sidebar & click on the pic! :)'s a bit of what I did:
  • I lightly colored the main image with my watercolor crayons and aquapainter...didn't want too much color to overwhelm the project.  Popped the main image up on dimensionals.
  • I sponged the edges, into the BG, and around the main image with Close to Cocoa ink, added a punched out piece of "Thoroughly Modern" DSP behind the clear button, tying the linen thread for the finish! 
The Small Print (All Stampin' Up!)
Stamps: Friends 24-7, Woodgrain BG
Ink: Close to Cocoa
Cardstock/Paper: Kraft, Chocolate Chip, Naturals Ivory, Thoroughly Modern DSP
Accessories: Sponges, Watercolor crayons, Aquapainter, Clear button, Linen Thread, Pop-up glue dot, Dimensionals

Well, what do you think?

Thanks for stopping by, and have a GREAT day! :)


  1. I love this card! That BG stamp pairs perfectly with the bird image! And the card is so versatile! Great job!

  2. This is a great masculine card, thanks for sharing.

  3. I like the look of the Woodgrain background stamped on Kraft cardstock!

  4. Oooh, I love this! I have such a hard time coming up with masculine cards. I'm going to have to keep my eye on you! :)


Go ahead...make my day! :)
