Bird day

I hand delivered this card to a friend at church so I was able to use this Beautiful ribbon that was given to me from a fellow cardmaker, isn't it beautiful with it's two sided colors.  The sentiment tag was also given to me and all I had to do was add a sentiment to it.


Ok so I found these Elmer's 3D glitter glues that I bought when my daughter still lived at home and she is now 27, so they have to be over 10 years old probably more like 15, but I thought I would try rubbing it over the raised embossed areas on this chipboard piece so the embossing would show up more and it actually worked great.  I keep telling myself I hang onto things for too long and then when I use something like this I think, well maybe it isn't so bad I tend to hang onto things, LOL!

I also used some more of that embossing paper that my daughter bought me many years ago and paired it all with another wooden bird cage.

Maybe you can go digging through your forgotten treasures and make a project this weekend.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and taking the time to let me know you did. Have a terrific and safe weekend, we have a lot of storms crossing the country.

it's gorgeous connie - really beautiful and one of my favorites. everything goes together so well, it is soft and personal - like all your cards! i too hang on to things, save them - often to my regret!!

i'm sure you know this but if you use a piece of cardboard in the envelope, in front of the card and have it hand stamped at the post office, i think this could be mailed. MAYBE - but you would not want to damage these pretty cards!!

and i forgot to mention the clever title of your post - too cute for words!!!

Well, that's interesting about the 3-D glitter glue. What a beautiful effect! I do have an item or two I need to try out. Such pretty ribbon. I actually have some of that, but narrower. Love the gorgeous embossed paper and the birdcage, too!

So pretty and elegant Connie. That bird house looks lovely as the focal point. The dry embossed background looks wonderful.

What a pretty card. Love the little birdie in the cage and the pretty blue and green ribbon is lovely. That is the way with people who create, one collects things that catch our eye and we put it away for another time.
