Penny Black Wildwood and PTI Birds and Blooms Father's Day card




Hello everyone and I hope you are keeping well. We have just had some glorious weather here in the UK and as we are allowed to meet in gardens now, it has been great to reconnect with family and friends. I had my second vaccine on Saturday and I'm looking forward to getting out a bit more once the next restrictions are lifted. 

Anyway, welcome to another challenge over at ATSM.


You can knock your socks off this time because you can make a card for any occasion to share with us.

I continued my little foray into the masculine and went for a Father's Day card.


I took a piece of white card and blended oxide inks on it before splattering with water and die-cutting a stitched rectangle from it. I white embossed the sentiment on and raised it onto a kraft base card.


 I used the Penny Black Wildwood dies and cut 2 squares from kraft and brown card to create the rustic frame. I created the nest by snipping into another couple of frames and built them into a nest shape. The eggs and birds were created with the Papertrey Ink Birds and Blooms stamps and die.

I'd like to play along at






Thanks for stopping by

Hugs

Beautiful masculine card. I really like how you used the die cut frames with the two colors and then also building a nest. Those birds are wonderful too!

Such an elegant masculine card, and a great choice of colours, too. I like the different shades of blue in the background, and the brown branches are such a great addition to our birds theme. Wonderful scenery alltogether. Thanks for joining the Alphabet challenge.
