Flight And Airy Birds On A Wire PP674

by Joanne James28. January 2024 08:00

Today it's Sunday and time for this week's new challenge over at The Paper Players! It's the turn of the fabulous Jaydee to host this week and she has my favourite, a sketch challenge for us to work with:


I wanted to make another card using some of the birds that I'd fussy cut from the Flight & Airy designer series paper, so I chose 5 of the large birds for my elements and set to work - take a look:


Here's the low-down on today's card:

I went for a simple, skinny slimline with just a few layers and a border of Orchid Oasis and Night of Navy to pick up the blues of the feathers:


A simple sentiment from 'Pansy Patch' and some co-ordinating baker's twine for my birds to balance on completes my card. The beauty of so much Sale-A-Bration free paper? Plenty spare to make a pretty, custom co-ordinating envelope too!

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:


You can see all of my Product and 'How To' summaries on my 'How To - Tips and Techniques' Pinterest board in case you've missed any.

Here's a quick recap of our challenge rules:
1.  Create a new paper project
2.  Upload your creation to your blog with a link back to us and provide a direct link to the post featuring your challenge submission.
3.  Please link your card to no more than four challenges, TOTAL.
4.  Have FUN!

Enjoy your day; I am looking forward to a day of cooking and Lego building, having treated myself to a kit in a recent sale. I haven't built any in a while, so that should be fun! I'll be back tomorrow with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!

I love how you used the twine for the birds to "stand" on, this is beautiful!

Joanne, the way you used this DSP is perfect.  I absolutely love the addition of the blue frame to highlight those gorgeous blues in the birds.  I hadn't wanted this DSP, but now I need it!
thanks for rocking my challenge

Oh, Joanne!  What a beautiful card! I love the fussy cut birds. The Orchid Oasis frame really sets them off. The twine makes the perfect perch!

Absolutely stunning! These papers look divine and I love the way you've used your fussy cut birds all in a row on the twine 'wire'. Vicky x
