Love Birds

Do you hold onto everything until it breaks or disappears? I do! Consequently, here is a card made with discontinued paper and retired builder punches. It also uses a stamp from a retired stamp set. Still, Love never expires, so this card can be sent whenever there are two people being united for love: Valentine's Day, Anniversary, Wedding, etc. 

   I (heart) Hearts

   Whisper White A-2, Scraps
   Real Red 2" Square + Scrap
   Stacked with Love DSP 5 1/4 x 4
   Back to Black DSP

   Basic Black
   Real Red

   Builder Punch

   Sweetheart Punch, Bow Builder Punch, Bird Builder Punch, Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack, Crystal Effects, Sponge, Glue Dots, Dimensionals, Adhesive

The only stamping is the word "love" from the I (heart) Hearts stamp set. I used Real Red Classic Ink. I think it looks really cute, but it can easily be replaced or deleted. 

The A-2 card base and birds use Whisper White. The wings are adhered using dimensionals, and the birds are sponged with Basic Black. I also used Crystal Effects on the eyes of the birds, but again this is a personal preference and it can be omitted completely. 

The Stacked with Love DSP was used as a background for the card. The Back to Black DSP was used on the bow and attached using a glue dot. I used the Sweetheart punch on Real Red card stock. This is the large red heart behind the bow.

  1. YAY! You're blogging again... and what an adorable card to start with, Sally!

  2. aw, very sweet! I love the contrasting colors for these beuatiful love birds! And yes, I hang on to way too many things! But that's the beauty of this craft - what was 'new' gets old and then when we find it - or quit hoarding it - it's new again, LOL!
