You have all seen that each month I participate in a swap with fellow members at SUDEMOONLY. This month our theme was new items from the Occasions Mini catalog. And, I have acquired way more than I thought I would have from this mini catalog!
I love these swaps for many reasons. Personally, it makes me step up my game. When I am sending a card to a friend or family member, they get a nice card that I work hard to create. But, when I am making cards for this group of demonstrators, I like to challenge myself to do my best most creative stamping!
For this card I used the new XL Bird Punch. I love this punch! I can remember when SU! started coming out with all of these birds, and I just didn't get it! Slowly, but surely, they grew on me. I embossed Brocade Blue card stock with the Damask Embossing plate. Then I punched the bird body. I punched out the branch with Mellow Moss card stock. And, I stamped the Very Vanilla card stock with Vintage Vogue and punched that out. The wing and the bird were both attached with dimensionals. I stamped the backgrounds with the same stamp from Vintage Vogue that I used for the bird wing.
Have a great day!
