I used a rotary cutter to deckle the edge.
The large priority mail box for Operation Write Home is just about full. I've been concentrating on doing cards for Father's Day since the cut off date for those is April 30th. But, making the same theme card after card gets boring to me. Today I went online and searched my Pinterest boards of card ideas and saw one similar to this layout. It's a nice, spring looking card so I made eight of them.
The narrow pink strip was embossed. The birdcage is from the Sophie cartridge. I punched the bird and branches with a Stampin' Up punch and embossed the bird's body. The sentiment was stamped and punched with their modern label punch then I created a shadow for it using images from their software and cut those with Make The Cut. The border was done with a Martha Stewart punch.
Kraft cardstock makes great card fronts. This is a re-make of a card I did a couple of years ago. The hearts were sized and cut using Make The Cut software and my Cameo. I inked the edges of the card front insert and the hearts and added some pen stitching.
I embellished a Martha Stewart thank you card. Found several boxes of these on clearance a couple of years ago and liked the punched border on the edge. They work up really quickly and make nice cards.
The sentiment is from Stampin' Up. I used one of their bitty punches for the flowers and centers then added some pen lines with a Bermuda Bay marker.
