Hello! I'm thrilled to say that I received a happy email from Paper Crafts magazine yesterday, as one of my cards was accepted for publication in Card Creations. Thank you, PC!
I thought I'd share one of the cards that wasn't picked up, which I happen to love nonetheless. *smile*
This purple number features stamps from WPlus9's Woodgrain Silhouettes Additions. After stamping the leaves on a Rustic Cream panel, I added a Kraft die cut frame that is debossed with woodgrain. I die cut a piece of Rustic Cream cardstock to go in the "window" and stamped it with a sentiment from PTI's Gracious Vases.
The little birdie and leaves were stamped and cut out by hand, then perched on the corner of the frame.
The design seemed a little unbalanced, so I added some brown "pearls" to create a visual triangle with the bird. I just used some die cut circles and gave them a coat of Glossy Accents for shine.
