Elizabeth Craft Designs ~ Birthday Birds On A Ladder

Good morning friends I'm happy to be sharing my very first post over at the Elizabeth Craft Designs Blog.  Now that Christmas and New Year's is over, I'm ready to use some spring colors in my craft palette.  These Love Birds from Joset Designs are just perfect for a mid winter pick-me-up!

I started by cutting a Soft Blue Soft Finish Cardstock  panel and mounted it to a white A2 sized card base.  I cut the Joset Designs Background out of Soft Blue Soft Finish Cardstock and adhered it over the card front.

I cut the Lovebirds out of White Soft Finish Cardstock and added color using Ranger Distress Inks.

Next I cut the Rustic Ladder out of Cafe au Lait Soft Finish Cardstock and added some distress ink around the edges.
Cut the words "Happy Birthday" out of Spring Green Soft Finish Cardstock.  Apply a generous coat of Zig 2 way glue pen to the top of the words and cover the words with Spring Peridot Silk Microfine Glitter.  When the glue has dried, polish the glitter on the words with your fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle.  
Once the card was assembled I added some yellow Stickles to the birds wings and tail feathers.

I hope today's project has inspired you to break out your spring colors and create some sunshine for someone special.

Supplies Used:
Rustic Ladder
Happy Birthday
Soft Finish Cardstock in Soft SkyCafe au LaitSpring Green and White
Other Supplies Used:
Distress Inks by Ranger
Yellow Stickles glitter glue
Glossy Accents
Zig 2 Way Glue Pen

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings~ Birgit
