Joy

I decided to make another card for the Cards in Envy: For the Birds Challenge using Cards in Envy sketch#10.

I know, I know, very few of us want to even think about Christmas but when you're a crafter you need too! I don't have many bird stamps and the ones I do are Christmas themed. I figured it never hurts to make a Christmas card early. The papers I used are from American Crafts. The stamp is an ittybitty by Unity called Silhouette Song Bird. I embosssed the image using Versamark and white embossing powder. I wasn't happy with my first attempt at embossing so I did it again.  I decided to not let the imperfect one go to waste and cut out the bird and the word "JOY" and popped with foam tape.

I am so looking forward to a 3 day weekend! It's supposed to be oppressively hot so it sounds like it will be good crafting weather for me!

Have a good one!
