Aviary Hello

This is a card idea I got from the current Stampin' Up! catalog.  In the evenings after my family is in bed, I look through the catalog and get ideas, not just of card layouts, but also color combinations.  This card looks HAPPY, don't you think?  The sentiment is from the Penant Parade stamp set, and the stamp was the perfect height to fit right on the strip of whisper white.  I was able to free-hand stamp the word in alternating ink and it actually lined up pretty well!  It is hard to tell in the photo, but the Labels collection framelit is actually a frame around the stamped image.  I used the 2 1/2" circle punch to cut the circle in the center of the framelit piece and it is on top of the Whisper white card stock as a frame.  Cute, huh?

  1. I love this card! I didn't realize the brown framelit was a frame until I saw you make this. It's adorable.
