Birds & Blooms Thinlets

Saturday was my son and daughter-in-law’s 5th wedding anniversary!  We got to watch Quinn for them when they went out to dinner and a movie on Friday night!  Since Allie is due to have our grandchild #3 in a couple weeks, it will probably be one of the last times they get out alone together for a while!  Here she is trying to help me with my phone!  Isn’t she getting big?


Quinn fun

I had this card in mind to make for them…good thing it was a fairly CAS design because I was running late getting it ready before we went over to their house!  I love the little filigree birds in the Birds & Blooms Thinlets set.


Birds and Blooms

Here are the details:

  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Dapper Denim, folded in half.
  • On the 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Whisper White, the Linen Thread was wrapped around  couple times for the “wire” they sit on.
  • The two birds were cut with Tip Top Taupe cardstock with the Birds and Blooms Thinlets, then added to the front.
  • Congratulations from Floral Phrases was stamped in the upper left corner with Dapper Denim ink.
  • A red glimmer heart was added above the birds.
  • Inside was the “love grow stronger” greeting in Dapper Denim Ink and the flourish from Timeless Texture with Tip Top Taupe Ink.
  • I also used the flourish on the envelope.

That’s it!  A very CAS design…but I really like how it looks!

Oh my, how could I not comment on that adorable little face. What a joy she must be for you. I can see a strong likeness to grandma too. Coincidence, she looks similar she to our granddaughter and our son and daughter-in-law are having there wedding anniversary on Wednesday. Sorry, nearly forgot, really lovely card. Thank you so much for sharing. Take care.
