Bird Note

Hello, everyone.  I love good, old-fashioned rubber stamping (or clear stamping, in this case).  Today I made a stamped bird card.

I stamped the bird in brown on a blue card base.  I die-cut a circle from brown cardstock and layered over the bird.  I die-cut a larger circle from patterned paper and affixed to the card to showcase the bird.  I wrapped the panel with brown ribbon and added a bow. Here are the supplies used:
  • Stamp:  Bird (Crafty Secrets - Bird Notes)
  • Ink:  Ancient Page Chocolate
  • Cardstock:  Staples
  • Patterned paper:  American Crafts
  • Dies:  Nellie's Multiframes - Circles
  • Ribbon:  Offray
