"Hello" Monday!

Vicki here...It's Monday and I'm here to share a fun summer card with you today.  Before long, it will be time to think about the next approaching  season!  Area craft stores and other merchants are already ahead of the calendar.


I used Memory Box Brioche patterned papers for my card.  They have a great combo of reds, yellows, and blues in fun, summer prints.  The card is 6 x 6 with the base layer in blue.  I layered this with patterned paper that has a combination of red print that melts into a creamy butter yellow.

For the top layer of the card, I used a creamy yellow with tree print paper.  I matted this with a red floral print and added a die-cut red tree as the focal point.  I love how the red tree "pops" on the cream background.

I made my own bird and bird's nest using the Mod Podge Nature silicone mold.  Since I don't have any of the  Mod Podge Melt Sticks at the moment, I used the air dry dough in my stash.  It worked great, but I still want to get some of the Mod Podge Melt Sticks!  I colored the bird and bird's nest with my Ranger Inks and a water brush.

The stamped sentiment is matted with red and blue cardstock and mounted on top of the die-cut branch and a piece of yellow fabric trim.  I tied the organdy ribbon over the sentiment and glued the bird's nest and bird to the center of the ribbon to finish the card.
