sparkly birds...

Hello!  The weekend is upon us and I have a bright and sparkly card to share today.  It was super hard to take a photo of this card and capture all the sparkle on the birds.  I will be posting this to the Where Creativity Meets C9 challenge of sparkle and shine and the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge of bright and cheerful.  I have some glitter paper that I got from Stampin Up! and it is super sparkly, but unfortunately it sheds... a lot!  I pulled out a piece of the green and die cut the birds using the C9 By Your Side bird die.  The neat thing about the By Your Side bird die is that if you die cut it from an A2 size panel it gives you the ability to slip a smaller panel of cardstock behind it or you can trim out the die cut and use it that way.  I decided to trim it out.  A piece of white cardstock was stamped with the C9 Barnwood Background stamp using Catherine Pooler's Limoncello ink and then trimmed down.  I placed the panel in my MISTI, positioned the birds where I wanted them, placed my sentiment where I wanted it and then stamped it with Nocturne VersaFine CLAIR ink.  The birds were popped up with foam tape and the panel adhered to a white card base.


Hope you have a wonderful day!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  Stampin Up! white, green glitter cardstock; Stamps and dies:  Concord & 9th; Inks:  VersaFine CLAIR and Catherine Pooler
