Birds on a Wire Silhouette Card


* This is my second post today - to see my Frilly & Funkie post click HERE. *

It's time for a new challenge at Scrapy Land and our theme is Embossing - wet or dry.  I had a chance to shop with my crafty DT bud Sara Emily while we were at the beach and we both picked out this fabulous new Spellbinders embossing folder by Donna Salazar.  I decided to ink up the folder with Distress Inks and run through my machine.  I went back over the panel by sponging with Distress Oxides around the edges.  I really love the size of these new folders!  I created a window with my Tutti Designs Nesting Stitched Circle and adhered a book page beneath.


I used a tub of Viva Rusty Paper that Sara Emily and I also picked up to give my Birds on a Wire Spellbinders die a vintage treatment.  This die cut thin chipboard beautifully!  I bumped up the birds with foam tape for dimension.


I decided to use feathers in my bundle to compliment the birds.  These are both from the Spellbinders Feathers set.  A little Wild Orchid Crafts flower tops my loopy seam binding bow.  I hope you are inspired to play along with our current Embossing challenge.  I'm thrilled to announce we will now give TWO $10 GC to the winners each round!  Thanks so much for your visit & support.  <3

  20. OOPS! Just lost my loooong comment! I was sayin'...You made great crafty use of those new goodies! I love the rusty paper paint on the birds (Now I have to get that die, too--you enabler, you!) and your embossed background looks fantastic! I just used mine on Father's Day, and after much fiddling, figured out the sandwich to use with these thicker folders. THEN my embossing powder efforts ran a mok, and I ended up trashing the whole thing! Your card is even more special with the stitching, the bow/flower/feather cluster details! Gorgeous! Hugs!

  27. Well, you know you add the birds and and I go "Timber..." love this so much! Really, really like your layout and using a die to create a window, then those birds on that cool paper are perfect. Tucking the feathers on the loopy bow is genius!

Love those birdies and the Viva Décor finish, and how they're strung over that circle with book page beneath. The colors are fab as always!
