Think Spring! It'll be back before you know it!

This is a card that was done in class, and we had a recent request to put it up on the blog.  The back single card (blue panel) is 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" and the parchment card tri-fold is 5 1/2" x 10 1/2" (scored at 3 1/2" intervals).  The branch was stamped multiple times with Versafine's Sepia and we've used the bushy branch from the kit below. The small verse is from Impresssion Obsession. With the first two panels folded together, we used a Whale Of  A Punch Oval. Feed the punch in from the top as far as it will go, and punch through the two layers at once. Pencil through the open oval onto the third panel to frame where the verse will sit. 

Using the McGill Botanicals Bird punch, punch out several robins using different colours of velvet paper.  Don't forget to punch some of them from the backside of the velvet so you can change the direction that the bird is facing.  The tree kit below is called 'Delicate Branches' from Inkadinkado.  We used the top branch in this set.  We added green colour with a Sakura's Metallic pen.  With the parchment folded as shown, attach to the back blue panel.  I hope this helps, Esther. :)

Sorry for the delay.  We've been busy with Workshops and our visit from Stacy Rich of Stacy Stamps. We'll see you again shortly. Happy Stamping.
