Hello everyone! Chris here today, I hope your 2020 started well and maybe you find some time for crafting.  After all the winter cards I want to bring some spring feeling into the house. So I decided to create a birthday card using the amazing and adorable birds from Garden Friends stamp set.

For this card I used:

First I stamped all images on alcohol marker friendly paper and colored them with alcohol markers and cut them out. One bird I created again with the “mirror stamping technique”. ( you can find some information about this technique in my last post dated December 20th)

For the background I added Distress oxide inks ( Peacock feathers) with some splatters – cut out the birch trees and the “bushes”  from the Pond Builder Dies( which I also blended with Distress oxide inks )

The letters are cut out twice and also colored with Alcohol markers – one in blue/green and  one in gray for the shadow. I embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder on a black label.

After this I arranged all colored images and dies and applied to my card base.

Now I wish you all a happy Friday and a good start in your weekend.

Happy crafty time
