Life is Sweet
Well I feel a bit better about my cardmaking today, maybe because the sun shone for a while and unseasonably warm too...lovely!!!
So today for 365 Cards Day 192 - So Sweet - the card is to have the word sweet on it and The Cuttlebug Spot 47 - 'It's for the Birds' to feature a bird.
Even though it's summery I felt autumny colours coming on.
The card base is kraft card by Lakeland.
The paper with the birdie is a great free download from DoCrafts - http://www.docrafts.co.uk/. I pierced around the edges and drew a pen along the holes to look like stitching.
I embossed a piece of lovely orange card in my Bug and cut the edge with my new Fiskars border punch 'Apron Lace' which I had for my birthday off a dear crafty buddy.
The sentiment stamp was inked with Adirondack 'Raisin' but surprisingly bled into the paper, it makes it just look more rustic.
A piece of Anita's sticky ribbon across the top and 3 buttons from my mum's tin with embroidery floss through the holes finished it off.
