I have a family friend who loves birds. I wanted to make her a gift set of cards that could be easily sent through the mail without requiring extra postage. I knew I needed to skip the knots/bows and all lumpy embellishments. This was hard for me – but I love how these cards turned out! I popped the focal image up on dimensionals and still managed to work in some ribbon.
I kept the sentiments somewhat generic so the cards could be used for whatever came up. The pattern paper is actually made with the Stampin’Up! Beautiful Borders – I love that set! I just repeated the border to make the background. I also used that same border on the inside and envelope.
