Little Blue Bird

Click on any image to inlarge.

This is a card I wanted to do for a friend that is an artist when it comes to crocheting. It had to be a special card for such a talented person. The doily base is from Wild Card, cut at 5-3/4". The branch and green circle is branch 3, accent frame cut 3 times at 4-3/4" and pop-dotted. The bird is bird 2 from Home Decor. On the inside I used MM for the scalloped circle at 4-3/4" and the circle at 4-1/4". The text on the inside top was computer generated, and stamped on the bottom. And of course, I had to add some bling and sparkle.

Don’t Forget to Write

Here is a card I did using ideas from two different members. One used the little mailbox with chicks, and the other used these birds stacked on top of each other. I definitely got ideas from these two ladies. One was how to use the little wings that are cut out of the HD birds to make it look like the wings are 3d. I did add a couple of other elements, like the tulips from WIMG and the grass from PS, layered. I also drew lines on the post for the mailbox to make it look like real wood.
