Flight & Airy, Darling Details, Deckled Rectangles, Friendship Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have a pretty bird card to share with you that I found on Pinteret. You can see the original here. I clicked through but there was no link to any instructions or measurements so once again I winged it. Please read on to see how I made this card with the materials I have. 

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock, it opens on the bottom and the fold is on the top.

I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White for the layer and textured it using the "Softly Sophisticated" embossing folder. I glued that to the card base.

Then I cut a piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Flight and Airy" 12" x 12" package.  This piece measured 4" x 2-1/2". 

On top of the DSP is a piece of Basic White that was cut using the 3rd smallest rectangle from the "Deckled Rectangles" die set. 

Using my Blending Brush I scrubbed on some Balmy Blue ink.

The birds are from the same package of DSP and were fussy cut. Dimensionals were added to the back.  I laid them on top of the deckled rectangle to see where the words would go. The words are from the "Darling Details" set and were stamped using Balmy Blue ink.

I taped the deckled piece to the DSP and then I glued that to the front of the card. The birds were set in place. A few pearls were added and the card was done.

This was a fun card to make and I am a bit disappointed because I should have used Boho Blue ink for the background inking instead of Balmy Blue. Other than that I do like the card. You just can't seem to go wrong with these bird images.

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop in and see today's friendship card,
