Birdie Thanks


I pulled out some of my favorite My Creative Time stamps and dies to make this little thank you note!  First I created an oval using one of the Scallop Stitched Oval Dies and stamped it with the Watercolor Background.  The little birdie, envelope, and birdhouse were all made with Fun Tweet Me Dies, and the bird was stamped with a coordinating stamp from Tweet Me.  I used Strathmore Bristol paper for the bird so that I could blend colors well on it with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens.  The sentiment is also from Tweet Me.  Fun Tweet Me Dies includes two swirly heart dies:  one cuts and one embosses.  I meant to use the one that embosses on my card base, but I accidentally used the one that cuts, which cut apart the base.  So, I just cut off that front panel, made a new card base, and then adhered the pieces of the front panel to the new card base, adding the oval scene on top.  I actually like it better than I probably would have liked the embossed one I meant to use.  A happy mistake!
