My inchie bird couple




Good morning everyone! Still on the wedding kick and I made an inchie card for the Inchie Card Sketch #2 over on the Inchie Inklings blog! Oh how I love to use these tiny images :) This sketch was perfect for the card I had in mind (after I turned it on the side ;)! I like how



this card has a playful with a touch of elegance look to it and I love the neutral grey/yellow & creamy white colour combo. For some reason, I always tend to create wedding cards with grey in them. The birds are stamped, cut out and I used a buttermilk Spica pen on her flower and a pearl in the center and added black Spica to both of their wings. Quite hard to see in the photo, but sparkly in real life. I had so much fun making this and I am really looking forward to other inchie challenges!
The other card that I created is a sketch I made up as I created the card, just playing around with the Nestie pieces as I cut them. The background was created with the Damask CB folder and the two scallop borders were created with EK Success slim border punches. I used the SU Together Forever set...again. What can I say but when I like a set, I tend to hang onto it and use it a couple of times a year :)
Both cards use "La Creme" mat stack...I guess you can tell that I really like this one, and the paper flowers on both cards are from the Wild Orchid Crafts shop in the UK.

Here's a close-up of the border detail. Have a great day and thanks so, so much for stopping by again!
