One of my goals for the year is to not make so many one of a kind cards. LOL While I have my supplies out and I am making a card- it really does not take much effort to create a second one. Doing this gives me one to send now and one for later. Oh, and they do not have to be the exact same, I just use the same basic design. Here is both a vertical and horizontal version of the same design. Another tip- I only stamp the inside sentiment as I am ready to mail them, I am finding that the same card ideas can be used for multiple occasions.
Ok, so is this not one of the cutest little birdies you have ever seen? She is from the Barn Yard Birthday set from TAC. (This is one of the stamp sets from the Wonderful Winter Wishes Promo going on until February 2, 2009. You can either click on the link or scroll to the bottom of this page for more details.)
Prismacolor Pencils and OMS were used to color the birds while the hats were colored with Glaze Gelly Pens. I love using the pens- the colors are so vibrant and shiny AND 3-D. (Tip- the Glaze Gelly Pens come with a small round cover over the tips of the pens, don't throw it away. LOL It keeps your pens from drying out when you store them. LOL) I used the Tropical Mini Brads on both cards, I think they look very festive.
