I've been preparing for a WOW class and one of the cards I had in mind used the Backyard Basics framelits to cut bird shapes along one side of the musical note patterned DSP from the Modern Medley's pack. Underneath I planned to have Cherry Cobbler cardstock which would show the cut-outs as red birds. A little cut with my craft knife and voila, a row of cardinals. I just had to colour their faces with my black marker and add a tiny pearl and they were almost perfect.
I hate the word almost. It means you got close but didn't quite make it. My little row of cardinals just wasn't quite there and I wasn't sure what to do about it. And then inspiration hit. I love it when that happens, don't you? I got my Bird Builder punch out of my drawer, barely breathing because I was sure it was going to be the wrong size. But it wasn't! The size was absolutely perfect and so I punched three little wings out of Cherry Cobbler, sponged them with a bit of Basic Black, and added them with Dimensionals.
I love how they turned out and how the card looks. Inside and out, it's a WOW card.
Check my times in the heading of my blog to see if you can attend a class that I've scheduled.
