A Little Bird Told Me Card

Hi everyone,

This is the first of two cards I've made today using Create a Smile stamps. At the moment they're looking for a guest designer on their blog for March and I'm hoping they'll consider me. This card was made with my friend Gary in mind. He's having a house party for his 40th this weekend and I'm hoping this card will appeal to his sense of humour, even if it is a tiny bit dark! I used the stamps from the Friends in the Woods set from Create a Smile. The sentiments, I created using my typewriter. Half the sentiment is on the front of my card...

…and the remainder is on the inside of my card!

So to make my card I started with a 110lb Neenah Solar White Cardstock base. I added Doodlebug paper from the fruit stand 6x6 paper pad which I die cut with one of the Mama Elephant Landscape Trio dies. I then Stamped the tree branch and owl images directly onto the cardstock and coloured them with copic markers. I added leaves to the branch using the gently seasoned dies from Paper Smooches. Next I stamped the fox image onto some more Neenah card stock and coloured it, again, with copic markers. I adhered everything to my card and added washi tape and enamel dots from my stash.
