Let's begin by building a flat, but dimensional birdhouse:

After putting the tape on so the sticky side faces down...

To create flat flowers:

Pretty Pearly Vellum clouds were cut using the Cheery Lynn B320 Clouds and Rain set.

Side view of the center card set - it also folds flat for mailing:

Finally, the back is just as pretty as the front! 

It looks slightly different than the front, but the card could be shown either way!

We hope you enjoyed today's ideas.

  2. WOW! Let me gather my thoughts....WOW! I love that fold, you have so many wonderful elements and accents, where do I begin? I adore that birdhouse die and how you have created it with so much dimension! Your flowers are FABULOUS and just so pretty! Donna, this is are you! Did I mention, WOW!!!

  3. You put a lot of time into this card and it really shows. I like how the details on the embossing match the details of the rest of the card. And your tiny yellow flowers with the colored centers, so much detail. It's gorgeous.

  4. Oh my, what a gorgeous card! I love the pretty yellow flowers and that sweet birdhouse. This is truly a work of art and a card that I would keep out on display for all to see. Beautiful!!

  5. Oh my goodness Donna you have totally outdone yourself, this is absolutely Gorgeous, beautiful use of all the dies, such pretty colors, makes for such a lovely scene, and I have totally never thought to do the back too, that is so pretty too and is worthy to be the front of the card, wonderful sentiments and paper to top it all off, your friend will feel very special to receive this beauty!!
