Isn't it great when different craft products in your stash go together, almost as though you had plannned it?
Tools: Spellbinders Labels 18 Diet Set , Tonic Studios Birds on a Branch, Birdhouse Die, Layering Rectangles and Layering Circles, Grand Calibur
Paper and Card: Hunkydory, Stardream Pearlescent Card
Embellishments: mulberry flowers, May Arts ribbon
As you will have noticed, I do like a lot of layers on my card! For this card, I wanted to use a Hunkydory card toppers and cardstock set that I had in my stash, as the pink/purple colours were a favourite of the card recipient. The focal topper came in the set, and although I don't have an exact shape match in my dies, I was unabashed. Spellbinders Labels 18 echoed the shape of the topper and it shows perfectly that you do not need to have an exact match to still create a harmonious arrangement on your card.
I've also mixed and matched patterned cardstock and papers with coordinating plains and pearlescents.
I carried on the theme of the card with my die cut accent - a bird house cut from the same pink stardream card as my card base, mounted onto a pre-embossed strip of Hunkydory Adorable Scorable card. I then used sprigs from the Birds on a Branch die set to create some final accents, picking up from the embossed foliage pattern on the card stock. These tucked behind the mulberry flower and floral organza ribbon as I often think a card is not finished if it doesn't have flowers and ribbon, I get kind of twitchy if I make a card without them!
Hope you all have a great a weekend and happy crafting!
