Songbird Birthday!


Hi everyone! I'm ready for winter to be over! We have had so much snow here in Colorado and I am so tired of shoveling and shoveling and shoveling....good thing it's a good workout or I would just give it up! I needed a bit of color in my life and the Papertrey Ink MIM #198 gave me just the opportunity I needed!


The challenge this week is to create a trifold card or invitation. This card was a really nice change from your average A2 card and I decorated and embellished all that extra card space to my hearts content! I started with the PTI stamp set Songbirds so I could at least think of warmer weather and used the coordinating dies to create pretty layers for my card front. I also created a tag with the songbird die to dress up the closure of the card!


There are actually three panels on the inside that can be decorated but i chose to do the bottom two only. The center of my card has another leafy die cut in the background and a sweet scalloped pocket ready for a gift card or good old fashioned cash! I left some space pen on the bottom to write in a special birthday wish!


The card is tied closed with a bit of coordinating ribbon and looks pretty open or closed! What a treat it will be to give this card away!


Thanks for checking out my blog! Bee Happy!!
