August 1, 2016 HOUSE OF CARDS SEPTEMBER CHALLENGE




This month over at HOUSE OF CARDS challenge our theme was birds or color - well I choose birds from Mynn Kichen Etsy shop - here- when I saw these whimsical - mod - steam punky birds from Tweet Tweet I already had ideas buzzing.  There are three birds and then fun -you can also get the FUN digi papers Cheerful Chirpings to go along with these FUN birds.  

This layout was totally cased from a Christmas card class I took in July - and we used Christmas papers for the "quilting".  I punched 1 inch squares (10) and arranged in an eye pleasing pattern, glued them in place and then ran the card front through my Cuttlebug with an embossing folder.  I love this technique and I love the quilted layout.  I printed out my digi birdie, colored it with prisma/OMS and a gold spica pen fussy cut it - opped it up on some foam dots.  Then I sized and printed my sentiment punched it out - added two sweet enamel dots and this card is ready to go.  Oh wait I added a Crackerbox eye - which looks almost lifelike. 

 Come join our challenge over at The House of Cards.  Will be looking for your great creations to this challenge this month
