Flight & Airy, Friendship Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. I have a card to share with you that I happened on by a happy accident. When I was making the card I posted yesterday I had punched out several birds using the "Heartfelt Hexagon" punch. I just left them sitting on my worktable (of course I did) after finishing my card. I had opened up Pinterest today and this layout for the birds happened to pop up.  How uncanny is that? You can see the original card here. It's got a fun fold but I didn't make mine that way. Please read on to see how I made it.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. It opens on the right and the fold is on the left.

I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Flight & Airy" 12" x 12" package. I taped this piece to the front of the card. 

A 1" x 5-1/4" piece of DSP from the same package was cut for the side strip. And a 1/2" x 5-1/4" piece of Flirty Flamingo card stock was cut and taped to the back of the 1" strip. About 1/8" piece of the Flirty Flamingo piece was left showing. This was then taped to the front of the card.

The birds are from the "Flight & Airy" package using the "Heartfelt Hexagon" punch. I taped the top and bottom one in place and the center one was added using Dimensionals.

Pearls were added to the sides of each hexagon and the card was done.

I think it's a pretty card but one that I don't usually make cards with no words on the front. I'm not sure what occasion this would fall under. I'm sure quite a few like Anniversary, thinking of you, Birthday, Wedding?  Not sure. I prefer cards with words on the front. It was fun to make and I do like the pretty colors. I'm amazed at how many cards can be made using the "Flight & Airy" DSP. Makes me wonder if I should have just gotten the paper instead of all the other stamp sets I bought and have hardly used because I keep making cards with this beautiful paper. LOL

Thank you SO much for stopping in to see today's card,
