For the Birds!

Do you like birds?  If you do, then come on over and check out all the bird dies we have in stock from Memory Box.  Below is one of our favourites.

This is the Madelaine Bird.  We think she's just the perfect size for a card measuring 2 1/2" wide and 1  1/2 inches tall.  Below is a card we made using this die.

If you cut the bird die twice using 2 different coordinating patterned papers, you can create 2 birds using the pieces and combining the 2 patterns.  It makes for a more interesting look when you do this.
The main thing is to make sure the patterns complement each other.  It was easy enough to draw the bird's eye (all we did was a row of black dots!) and then we coloured in the bird nose with a marker!  There are many samples in the store to inspire you.  Come and check them out!

Card of the Week

Well, it's September 3rd, school starts tomorrow and it's time to say goodbye to the hazy, lazy days of summer.  We hope you are enjoying this one last long weekend before fall sets in!

This week's card is a simple card using Memory Box's Chloe Stem Die.

We cut the image out using the Big Shot twice: first in cream and a second time in purple.  We then glued both pieces to a piece of Kraft cardstock, adding some hemp twine in the same purple as one of the stems.  Add a greeting and mount onto a cream base, and there you have it.  A simple and elegant card ready to give to that special someone!

Below is a closer look at the front panel of the card.

There are a lot of card samples using these wonderful Memory Box Dies in the store.  Come on in and visit us and check out our enormous selection!
