The Best of Everything

The Best of Everything set is one I have hardly used too.  I saw a card much like this at Terri's Stamp-a-Stack and of course I took a photo of it.  I do that for future reference.  I have thousands of photos on my computer of card samples and I often wonder how far into the future I was thinking when I took all of these photos!!! LOL

So since Thursday was only 3 days ago and I'm making the card, I think I'm doing well.  The set hasn't retired yet so I'm doing well there too!  Many of those stamp photo images are of cards that the sets have retired.  Some I still like to look at for reference for a different set but I never get around to making the cards.  Today I thought I would make this one and delete the photo from my phone!  

I didn't have the same decorative papers but I did find some that were close in color and colors I liked and wanted to work with!  Here I used Old Olive and Calypso Coral.  I added a piece of chocolate ribbon on top of the seams to hide them.  

The base of the card is Chocolate Chip with a layer of white card stock on top of that. Then the decorative papers were added.

I stamped the image on white card stock.  I used markers and colored in the image.  The "Direct to Rubber" technique.  And I did the same with the bird.  I huffed on the images and stamped them.  I punched out a flower for the tree.  I set the flower on a foam mat and took the end of an ink pen and rolled the pen around the center of the flower until the flower started to spin a little.  Once it does the spin thing I know it's curled up on the sides.  I set it in place and added a tiny pearl in the middle.  I stamped the words on (but don't look too close, they are crooked!) and that was it.  This was very fun to make and extremely easy!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

I've always loved that little tree, and I love how you placed the little bird on it as a branch! Too cute!
