Springtime Bluebird

Happy Friday!  It's Jeanne today and I have a fun, easy and sunny card for you today.  This card is made extra easy by the new slimline dies which give you lots of layout options!

I started by cutting three panels.  One from rose cardstock using the largest of the Nested Stitched Slimline dies, the next from a tone-on-tone white paper using the thirds largest of the Nested Rectangle Slimline dies and the third from green cardstock using the Windows Slimline dies.

 I adhered  the windows to the tone-on tone paper and centered that on the rose panel base.

I cut all my pieces from the Bird w/Bluebells, Spring Flowers in Pot and the older Hello Spring Bloom dies.  (It is so nice to mix new dies with what you may already own!) The flowers were colored with alcohol markers, the bird I colored with dye ink and brushes, and  the sentiment was cut from coordinating cardstock.

I placed my bird and bluebells first, followed by the sentiment.

Then I added my flowers and a few glitter enamel dots.  In this photo you can see the tone-on-tone leafy background.  It adds dimension to each frame.  If you don't have paper like this, an embossed background would do the same.






Thanks for visiting today.  Please be sure to stop by the online store where the Slimline and new Spring dies are on sale for a limited time

I hope you have a fun and creative weekend!
