I did warn you of my birdie predilections of late, now didn't I? So here is another little chirpie number I whipped up. This is a fairly quick card to make as it just required a bit of die cutting machine action mainly done beforehand and my newest avian woodblock background stamp that has all the elements I am so quaint on at the moment (birds, old letter writting, sheet music, and ledgers), a small bit of willpower to section off and call to duty a little of the vintage lace that I (also) seem to hoard so well. Tragic I know.
Another reason why a card of this nature is so quick for me is that I often have prep sessions where I precut and score my base cardstock like in the dozens, crank out a fair few classic Nestie shapes and frames in neutral colors and keep them at the ready for deployment when the perfect occassion arises. So then it is really just a case of choosing the patterned paper if using and cutting it to size or finding a suitable scrap, stamping, distressing, laying out the card for a look-see, choosing my embellishments, sticking everything down, more than likely distressing some more, tending to any final titivations needed and voila!.. a cheep (pun intended) and cheerful (well, sort of) card.
