Feeling a little "Krafty"

These are the CottageCutz dies I used for today's post. The Lovebirds, Whimsical, Stylized Tree and the mini Simple Tree.

It's been a long time since I made a card and didn't have at least 2 layers of cardstock and patterned paper behind my design. I just loved the look of these diecuts against the raw Kraft cardstock.
For the trees I inked the edges in a mixture of Walnut ink and Peeled Paint Distress ink.
I cut the leaves out of a patterned paper that matched my cardstock.

For the Whimsical birds I inked them with Walnut Stain also and added some white paint dots to the eyes and a few on the wings.
I thought this would make a cute, but simple Anniversary or Congratulations card for a newly engaged couple or even a baby card with the mini nest die inside the card.


Be sure to check out the blog each day of the week as we have a brand new Design Team that is sure to please!
