Simple One Layer Bird Notecards


I got a request for a set of bird notecards from a co-worker, today is her mom's birthday & she loves birds so of course I was so happy I had Gina K's new set Home Tweet Home to make them. Since it's such a busy time I had to make them real simple but she was pleased with them.

Im sharing my 2 favorite cards in the set. I used Gina's 120 lb weight pure luxury cardstock for the card bases and scored simple lines for visual interest and colored them all differently. I personalized real easily with my JustRite harmony rectangle stamper with the Curlz font for capital letter & Times New Roman for the rest of the letters. They were colored with my peerless watercolors & aquapainter. The birthday wishes on the curly label punch tag is from Winter Foliage .
