Friends for life...

Today I would like to share with you a little card I created featuring a few of my favorite things...

Products used:
McGill Dimensional Bird and Tree punches
Kraft Cardstock
Corrugated Cardstock
Core'dinations Glittered Cardstock
Websters Pattern Paper
Making Memories banner
MS mini Pearls

I love creating cards and using my dimensional punches from McGill.  They often add that little something that is needed.  The flowers on the bottom of the bird cage were created with the McGill dimensional tree punch.  I punched out 15 of the little flowers in the punch.  I used my McGill Tool kit and molding mat to cup 10 of the little flowers making sure to cup 5 of the 10 a bit more then the others . I then layered the flowers with a flat one on the bottom and a cupped one in the middle and putting another more cupped one on top.  Then added a Martha Stewart mini pearl to the centers of each of the flowers.  I lined them up where the holes where at the bottom of my birdcage.  Of course I had to add the 2 little birds to the birdcage.  The birds were punched from the McGill dimensional bird punch and I just swapped out each of the birds wings with the others to add character.  I love Kraft paper and often use it for the base of my cards.  I don't know but there is just something about the paper that I just have to use it.
