Get Well Bird Mail

This is a get-well card I made.  I stamped the bird in black on mustard cardstock, fussy-cut, and added a pearl in the centre of the flower.  I stamped the sentiment in black on white cardstock, layered with black, and added some punched flowers and a black gem.  Then I adhered the bird and the "get-well mail" with foam tape to the burgundy panel, layered with black and mustard cardstock, and adhered to the black card base. Then I embellished the card with pearls.

Here are the supplies I used:
  • Stamps:  bird (Soloz for Studio G), sentiment (dollar store)
  • Ink:  Tsukineko Versafine - Onyx Black
  • Cardstock:  Recollections
  • Flower Punches:  EK Success
  • Gem and Pearls:  Dollarama
