Today would be a good day to bundle up in layers if I were going to leave the house. It's snowing! Just a little bit anyway. It's our first of the season.
This card is bundled in layers, too. I wanted to play with the new Stampin' Up! SAB designer paper. I didn't get the stamp set that goes with it so after going through every flower set I had, I decided something non-floral would actually be better. The paper has some tiny birds mixed into a lot of the prints. This bird is from Inkadinkado and he is one of my favorites. I stamped it in Versamark and went over in pastels. Pastels are so forgiving as I didn't have the exact colors of the paper but no matter. They blend.
The frame is cut with the Cricut and the Storybook cartridge. I stamped the background to help it blend with all these busy prints. A couple of the prints are punched with border punches per the Ways to Use it challenge at Splitcoaststampers this week. Haven't done one of those in ages. It was nice to play along on a good card making day.
Thanks for visiting!
