Bird on a Branch - well 2!!!

Happy Anniversary but this could be engagement, wedding or baby twins card... okay maybe not that one but this stamp set can get over looked and it really shouldn't as it is so lovely and versatile.

I stamped the branch in basic black and the two birds and gold embossed the flowers and Happy Anniversary (this is from Cheer and Wishes stamp set) Using the dotty stamp from the Bird on a Branch set I painted direct to the stamp some champagne shimmer mist and stamped it on the top.  I think it looks better in real life but I think you get the idea.

I even decorated the inside using whisper white and gold embossed the two birds (well it's one but I stamped it twice is what I meant) and the strip of gold embossing at the bottom is a strip of sticky strip (red liner tape).

that's it done!

.........Until crafty....


  1. Very pretty card, the speckles just add that finishing touch.

  2. You are so right this image could be used for many different types of cards.
    Very pretty, love your embossing.

  3. Great anniversary card - and you're right it's a versatile set. Great idea to emboss the sticky strip!
