Bluebird Blessings

Mindy here, with you today sharing a Thinking of You card that can be used any time of the year.

I started by stamping the Birds and Roses stamp from Sweet and Sassy Stamps, on white card stock and coloring it in. I used special pens I have in my supplies, is they have a very fine point that gets into the tiniest of places when coloring an image.

I also stamped the phrase from the same stamp set, "Blessings to You", on white stock and decorated the edges of it with the same pens.

I also die cut the design with the S4- Standard Circles Die- Lg. from Spellbinders.  If you are in need of a Spellbinders die or other supplies, that are not carried in the Classy Cards n' Such Online Store, please email Beverly at, and she will see about getting it for you.  After I cut the circle, I backed it with a scrap of printed paper that I cut with a Scalloped Circle die. The tag for the sentiment was cut from the Romantic Rectangles die also from Spellbinders. 

I then began working with the background of the card.  The base of the card is made from Stardream Fuse Azalea Metallic paper cut to an A 2 size card.  I then had several pieces left over from a previous card made, so I pieced a  background like a mosaic. The various pieces were embossed with the Lattice embossing folder, and Vintage Flowers embossing folder, both from Crafts Too! I adhered them with double-stick 1/4" Scor-Tape to the card front, positioning and trimming them to fit the 4" X 5.25" size.  I then attached the image and sentiment with Large Foam Pads to give the card depth and dimension.

I hope you have enjoyed my card, and that you will participate in our Weekly Card challenges. They begin on Sundays, with a new theme each week. Be sure to check the link in the right hand margin for more information.

Have a Great Day!
