This card was inspired by a super cute card by Nichol Mcgouirck where she put a little kitty on a pillow next to a bundle of envelopes and i thought it looked so very cute. So i used this as a starting off point for creating this card. I have searched all through her blog and youtube channel to see if i could link it up, but i haven’t found it yet – once i do i will pop a link on here so you can see it too.
I knew i wanted envelopes and i was sure that i ‘must’ have an envelope stamp somewhere in my stash. Can you believe that i went through every single stamp set, and of course, it was in the last page of the last stamp folder!
To be honest, this was one of those cards that end up completely different from the original idea, but it all worked out in the end. To start i was planning on making the main panel of the card in the stamped alphabet blue, but it looked too overpowering and it didn’t really take my fancy, so i mixed things up a bit. But i love how the finished card turned out.
The birdies were also not part of the original plan, but the card needed a little something to add a pop of colour to the design – these little guys come from an old set from hampton arts – i think they are super cute. I coloured them with colouring pencils and used a white gel pen to add some little dots which i think makes the birdie look extra cool!
Thanks for stopping by.
