Happy Birds Card

Yay for Friday! I'm hoping to get crafty today. How about you?
I "scrap-lifted" this card from our new Annual Inspirations book. I tweaked it a little, by using our Distressed Backgrounds stamp set. I also used up another scrap of the Later Sk8r paper I had left from other recent card projects.

Paper: Later Sk8r (retired), Flaxen CS, Glacier CS, White Daisy CS, Desert Sand CS (CTMH)
Stamp: Happy Birds (CTMH)
Inks: Flaxen, Chocolate, Cocoa, Glacier (CTMH)
Tools: Craft Heater, Clear Detail Embossing Powder, Craft Tray, Watercolor Pencils, Alcohol Markers, Micro-Tip Scissors (CTMH)
Other: Green Glitter Tape (American Crafts)

I have to share something I found out while making this card. I found this pretty green glitter tape at my local craft store around Christmas. I forgot I had it until I was working on this card. I cut off the first piece and prepared to tear the plastic backing off to tape down, only to discover that this brand doesn't do that. I had to use my Tombow to adhere it. It's still pretty; guess I got a little spoiled with our glitter trim.

P.S. I love our background stamps! So fun!

  1. You did an awesome job of CASEing the card from the book, Casandra! And I had the SAME thing happen with Washi tape I bought and it was like a pack of ten rolls! I had no idea they even made them without adhesive. They really shouldn't be calling them "tape" now, should they?! Hugs, Darnell
