Spring can't be too far away because the hyacinths are blooming – still waiting for the daffodils – and these little black and brown birds are checking out the area under the eaves outside our family room for a new home. They come back every year, despite my attempts to dissuade them. And, if I'm not careful, they can get a lot of nest building accomplished in just a few hours. You'd think 10 pairs of cat eyes watching their every move would give them a hint that this is not a good place to raise a family. Or, maybe they're smart enough to realize that the cats are the ones in the cage!
(LL3012) to card stock with removable tape, applied metallic gold embossing paste, removed and cleaned the stencil and set the card aside to dry. The next step involves dry embossing the Lovebirds Heart stencil (LL3011) and, with the stencil in place, coloring the birds and foliage with Splendor Inks from Tsukineko. I let the ink dry for a few minutes and then cut out the birds and just enough greenery to fit over the top of the card. Assemble the pieces and you're done! The card, as shown, is A2 (4-1/4 x 5-1/2), but could easily be made larger to accommodate a sentiment at the bottom.
