I created these four cards to use up a length of blue velvet ribbon I had on my desk. The birdies in Papertrey's Take Three - Summer set are some of my favorite bird images!
Envelopes are stamped with Color Box Chalk Azurite.
I stamped the birdie image with Versamark onto a scrap of ivory cardstock (I stamped five in case I messed up on one).
Then stippled on Perfect Pearls Perfect Gold. I cut these apart and did not round the edges, opting instead to mount tiny, Memory Box Sparkling Diamond bling in each corner. The pearlized image was adhered onto a vellum cardstock mat...
...then mounted onto these! These are black Twinchie Squares that have been run through a die cut machine using a Papertrey In Bloom impression plate. These matboard squares are a solid black hue throughout, and took the impression plate beautifully. I think they make quite a little statement piece for these tiny cards, and I love how some nice texture was achieved.
Memory Box Deep Lagoon bling was added to each birdie's belly. A black brad holds the ribbon in place on the right, and the Twinchie Square unit is mounted with foam dimensionals to give the velvet ribbon room underneath.
Finished card size is 3-1/2" square. Thank you for stopping by today!
