Today’s card uses a pretty stamp set that will continue on into the next year’s catalog. I’m so happy, because I love the Free as a Bird set. Right now there are so many birds outside! It’s spring and when I walk outside in the morning they are really singing ~ it’s so sweet!

The birds you see here on the branch are all on one stamp. I first stamped in Crumb Cake Ink on Basic White cardstock, and then colored in with Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers. The entire image was fussy cut with Paper Snips Scissors.

The card begins with a Basic White cardstock base. Then a 5″ x 3-3/4″ piece of Balmy Blue cardstock was distressed with Paper Snips and adhered on the card front at an angle. Another piece of Basic White cardstock was cut at 4-3/4″ x 3-1/2″ and run through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine with the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder. After embossing, it was brushed with a Blending Brush and Balmy Blue ink.

The leaves were cut with the Forever Flourishing Dies and tucked under the birds. A bow tied with Linen Thread was also tucked up under the birds.

Woo-hoo! A matching thank you gift and card! With Stampin’ Up! products we can create SO many beautiful things that bless others. This lovely set will definitely bless someone you are thanking. And it’s easy to make! Here’s a replay of my Facebook Live that shows you exactly what to do!

Layering the Bermuda Bay cardstock and the True Love Designer Series Paper gives a nice contrast of layers. Use Blending Brushes to lightly color the first layer of the True Love Designer Series Paper.

Almost everything used in this project is retiring soon: the True Love Designer Series Paper, the So Sentimental stamp set, and the Mini Curvy Keepsake Box Dies. I’m telling you now so that you can grab them before they are gone 🙂

I seriously love the Mini Curvy Keepsake Box Dies. They are going to remain in my personal stash after they are retired. I mean, look at how cute these little boxes are! For the little curls on top of the boxes, I cut a few 8-1/2″ x 1/4″ pieces of Bermuda Bay cardstock and curled them with a bone folder. They look so festive! Don’t forget to put a little piece of chocolate into the box before sealing it up!
