A Little Birdie Told Me

Good Morning! 

Today's card will be entered into the Challenges at; Stamp TV, Double Challenge--to create a Pocket Card and to decorate the inside of your card--which I typically do anyways  and Simon Says Wednesday, A Bit Of Sparkle.

I made this for one of my Mother's Gal Pals.

I used some pretty Designer Paper by CoreDinations, the Turquoise pack.  My stamp sets are by Gina K Designs, Birthday Blessings and Simple Numbers.  I started with a little Vellum envelope and added a strip of Black and White Polka Dotted Washi Tape.  My tag is a Traditional Stitched Tags die by MFT.  Sentiment stamped in Raven Black ink.    

Paper Doily accent to place my Vellum envie on.  Using my Cameo I cut out the little birdie from the Birthday Blessings stamp set.  Turquoise Rhinestone and Pearl Flourish accent.  MFT Bracket Edge Duo die.
My tag has been decorated with a couple of strips of Designer Paper, Gingham Ribbon, Eyelet, Flower Button and Twine.  I covered the number 70 in glitter.
Who doesn't love a pretty tag?

The inside has been decorated with another strip of matching Designer Paper, sentiment and heart flowers.  Inks in Raven Black and Tempting Turquoise.

When the Stamp Junkies were celebrating their anniversary I was lucky enough to win one of these fantastic Card Hanger Dies by Laurie Willison from Soapbox Creations.  You can find all the info abut them HERE  Laurie has 4 different versions to choose from.  I picked the scalloped edge one, as you can also use it for a border die too!  Pretty clever, aye? 

See how your pretty cards can now be showcased right on to the gift bag?  No more hiding that beauty in an envelope and tossing it in the bag.  I think this is one of the most clever dies out there.  Don't forget to check them all out at Laurie's Blog Post.   
Thanks so much for flying by.
