Free As A Bird

Hello and thank you for stopping by today!

This is one of those days where I have a difficult time choosing what kind of card to create. I’m looking through my stash of stamp sets and just couldn’t make up my mind. It probably took a good hour or so to finally make a decision. I bought this bundle set just recently namely because of the stitched nested label dies which come with this bundle. The set I’m referring to is called FREE AS A BIRD and is on page 91 in the 2019-2020 Stampin’Up! catalog. Absolutely adorable and the stitched nested label dies are so versatile. So let’s have a look:

For this card I simply cut Whisper White cardstock to 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″. The first layer was embossed using the 3D Brick and Mortar Embossing Folder and it measures 5-1/4″ x 4″. I inked the edges with Gray Granite ink. Using a sponge dauber dipped in Gray Granite ink, I ever so lightly brushed over the embossed cardstock. I wrapped twine around the first layer three times. I adhered that layer to the base card using dimensionals. Next I stamped the image onto Whisper White cardstock and colored it with Stampin Blends. My choice of Blends were Calypso Coral, light Crumb Cake, dark Granny Apple, light Coastal Cabana and dark Lovely Lipstick. The nested label dies were used to cut the image out. The sentiment was stamped in Memento Black ink and the flower was colored using dark Lovely Lipstick. This set makes great friendship cards.
