Peaceful Bird Silhouette

Thanks for stopping by!   It's my turn posting on the Poppystamps blog today.  The design team takes turns posting so there are new ideas and projects featured there every single day!   My project today is a clean and simple card loaded with lots of extras including a die cut window, dry embossing and a color blended background.   You could make a bunch of these in no time and it's still flat enough to get by without any extra postage! 

I made a card from card stock and then trimmed a slightly smaller panel.   I stamped a sentiment on the smaller panel, die cut a circle "window" for my scene and then embossed the panel with a wood grain pattern.  I took a small piece of card stock that would fit behind the window and inked it up with pink and purple distress ink blending them in the center.  I adhered this blended panel to the card base and then attached the embossed panel with adhesive foam tape so that it stands up a bit from the base.  Last I inserted the die cut peaceful bird and small pine branch. 
I hope you like it and give this a try!  Have a great day!

Fabulous CAS beauty. I especially love the ink blending, and it really highlights that white bird.

I really like this card Jeanne - the woodgrain effect embossing is perfect to go with the bird on the branch die.
